With an April 2 opening, spring cleaning comes early to Carowinds theme park that straddles the N.C./ S.C. state line. Crews are painting rides and adding improvements for the park's 39th season.
Getting a new color this year is the Vortex roller coaster, which goes from red to white.
The children's area of the park is getting a new attraction, Snoopy's Starlight Spectacular, a dramatic light show starring everyone's favorite beagle and his friends.
