If visiting on a weekend, be prepared for a crowd. They usually have fewer visitors before noon on Sundays. If you plan to visit Carowinds several times in a season, you can save money by purchasing a season pass. You may find a discount by purchasing tickets online, and some season passes include free parking, which will save $15 per vehicle. Discounts on foods and drinks are also available for season pass holders.

Season pass holders still pay extra for:
  • Dinosaurs Alive! (but they do have several dinosaur statues you can see as you walk around the park and you can get a quick glimpse of the exhibit from the top hill of the Woodstock Express or at the top of the steps while waiting for the Afterburn or while waiting on the track on the Afterburn while waiting to enter the starting point at the end of the ride)
  • Grand Prix Go Carts
  • Xtreme Skyflyer
  • Laser Maze
  • Mini Golf
