In additional the previously announced addition of Dinosaurs Alive! for the park's 2013 season, Carowinds has also announced the addiction of the Grove, a new catering and special events area capable of hosting up to 15,000 people per day.
The Carowinds Grove will greatly expand the capacity for private events at the park, and will be located at the park's North Gate, near the Intimidator coaster.
The expansion will also include beefed up kitchen facilities, capable of creating up to 3,000 meals per hour. The expanded menus will include everything from "barbeque sandwiches to prime rib to customized cakes for dessert."
The addition marks the second Cedar Fair park to greatly expand their private event facilities this year, with Valleyfair also building a brand new facility.
