Season highlighted by extended summer hours and new night time entertainment
CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — With the debut of the 2011 season, Carowinds celebrates the one year anniversary of Intimidator™ – billed as the tallest, fastest and longest coaster in the Southeast. In its first year of operation, Intimidator™ delivered over 1.5 million rides to guests and was nationally featured in several popular television shows, including the season finale of Bert the Conqueror on the Travel Channel and Intersections on the SPEED Channel.
“We know guests have been anxiously counting down the days to get revved up all over again,” said Bart Kinzel, Carowinds vice president and general manager. Intimidator™ is a visually impressive ride and dominates the park skyline. The statistics speak for themselves and have helped position Carowinds as the thrill leader in the Southeast.”
With the opening of the 2011 season, guests will notice a multitude of projects that took place during the off season, including:
“Opening day at a theme park is like Christmas morning for coaster enthusiasts,” said Josh Herrington, regional representative of the Southeastern region of the American Coaster Enthusiasts (ACE). “Each off-season we patiently wait for spring to roll around so we can get to the parks to see what’s new. Having a park like Carowinds in our region makes the wait even more agonizing, since they always try to outdo themselves every year. I can’t wait to get to the park and see all of the improvements made during the off-season.”
On May 28th, Carowinds will unveil Snoopy’s Starlight Spectacular, a million dollar nighttime walk-through light and sound experience featuring Snoopy and the PEANUTS™ gang. In addition, a nightly fireworks show called Nights of Fire will debut July 1. This new night time entertainment will be highlighted by the extension of park operating hours until 10pm every day from June 27 through August 7.
