Carowinds Kicks Off 2014 Season

I must admit, I was looking forward to seeing if any construction had started on Carowinds' big 2015 coaster project when the park opened this weekend - alas it was not meant to be.

There are a lot of other fun changes at the park to check out, however.  I love a nice, concise look at what's different, and this post over at Carowinds Connection does that perfectly.

The park's Sky Coaster has been moved and renamed, and the go-karts closed for good (both presumably for the aforementioned coaster project), and one coaster has a shiny new paint job.  There's also some big food changes coming to the park, including a new Chickie's and Pete's.  Also, and seen at the top, Carowinds is building a large new dining structure, named the Harmony Hall Marketplace.  It will have different food outlets within it along with live entertainment.

Plus, the park will open new waterslides this summer!  Those aren't finished yet, but work has certainly begun.
