CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The wait is over! Guests can splash, slide and soak up the Carolina sun at what has been recognized as one of the 10 Best Waterparks to Visit in 2016 by Fodor's Travel magazine, Carolina Harbor Waterpark at Carowinds. The park will debut to the public on Saturday, May 21 at 11 a.m.
There's something for everyone with 27-acres of fun – all while celebrating the culture of the Carolina coast. With the largest waterpark expansion in the park's history, Carowinds has doubled the size of the waterpark, and now has twice as many attractions. Carolina Harbor still features favorites from the previous waterpark, Boomerang Bay, with new coastal themes and color schemes.
Carolina Harbor Waterpark features more than 20 attractions for families and thrill seekers including the new flagship six-story tall waterslide complex, Blackbeard's Revenge; a two-acre family area which features popular coastal town names, Kiddy Hawk Cove and Myrtle Turtle Beach; in addition to Seaside Splashworks- a multi-level play structure with over 80 play elements and a giant 423-gallon tipping bucket that soaks everything in its path. And guests can catch some gnarly waves in our new 27,000 square foot wave pool, Surf Club Harbor. More than 2,000 new lounge and pool side chairs have been added, along with just over 30 new cabanas (60 total), including two party cabanas which can hold up to 16 people.
There's more! After a day of splashtastic fun, park goers can fill up on some good ol' Carolina cuisine at the all-new Harbor House restaurant. The eatery features two 2,400 square foot outdoor patios. Guests can also relax by the poolside with an adult beverage from the new Schooners Beach Bar.
It's also easier and more convenient for park goers just wanting to visit Carolina Harbor! We've added a new separately-gated waterpark entrance- all part of a best day ever experience! What makes it even better? Entry to the waterpark is included with the price of Carowinds admission!
