Charlotte, NC, USA — On Saturday, June 1, 2013, Carowinds kicked off their 40th anniversary summer celebration with a birthday party packed full of fun – and cake, the largest ever served on the state line.
When it debuted in 1973, Carowinds was located in the small city of Charlotte and the smaller town of Fort Mill, SC. In the last forty years as the metropolitan areas have grown and evolved, so has the park. Its original size of 73 acres has grown to 398 of rides and attractions, including 13 world class coasters, most of which travel at speeds, heights and curves that were unimaginable back in 1973. Four original rides continue to entertain visitors today: The Scrambler, The Carolina Goldrusher coaster, Snoopy’s Junction train, and the iconic Carolina Skytower.
Carowinds opened for daily operation on June 2, 1973, to an enthusiastic crowd. They enjoyed the day in their bellbottoms and mini skirts and have been coming to enjoy the park’s thrills, shows and attractions ever since.
