Winterfest at Carowinds

Carowinds Photos Taken: 12/29/2019 Posted: 12/20/2020

In this update, we share photos from our visit to Carowinds last year for Winterfest. It rained the entire day leading up to this event and that seemed to scare the guests away. Sadly the park closed due to low attendance an hour and a half after opening with no warning.

We were able to experience several rides on Copperhead Strike and Afterburn, but didn't get a chance to get around to all of the special holiday activities.

Nevertheless, we did try to run around the park at its early closing to capture some sights from around the park.

This is the most empty we have ever seen this parking lot. This was about 5 minutes to opening.

We were warned that some things may not open. Everything actually did seem to open. What we were not warned of was that the park would actually call of the event and hour and a half in!
