Carowinds will be bringing back some oldies but goodies with a new County Fair section of the park in 2017. In addition to four new classic rides that everyone in the family can enjoy together, there will also be a re-themed roller coaster and some enhanced food offerings.
The four new vintage thrills are intended to provide families with some classic nostalgia and old-fashioned fun, with similar additions also being made at sister parks Worlds of Fun and Dorney Park which are operated by Cedar Fair too.
Do-Si-Do (Huss Troika) is a super-fun spiraling adventure that will send guests flying through the air and gliding up, down and around as three giant arms rotate riders in different directions, all while increasing speed and elevation.
Electro-Spin (Mondial Top Scan) will give park goers a sense of being airborne in free-rotating, floorless gondolas while being suspended and flipping upside down up to 63 feet above the ground!
Rock 'N' Roller (Mack Music Express), a staple of any County Fair, is a fast-paced circular ride that will send guests round and around, up and down as high energy tunes and spectacular lighting round out this awesome experience.
Zephyr (Zierer Wave Swinger), a classic family swing ride, will suspend riders as it rotates in a circular, wavelike motion providing remarkable views of the park.
The Carolina Cobra rolller coaster is getting a makeover with a new name and theme. Fitting for any County Fair, guests will look to the sky for an air show featuring the daring aviation maneuvers of The Flying Cobras.
First in flight, first in taste! The popular Wings dining location will receive various improvements and enhanced menu offerings, perfect to accompany any family outing at the County Fair.
The new County Fair area at Carowinds is slated to open spring 2017.
