Carowinds laying foundation for new County Fair attraction

Construction continues at Carowinds, where in this photo the upcoming "County Fair" section of the park is being worked on. This space will house four vintage fair-style attractions that will take riders back to a 1950s fair with “home-grown thrills,” park officials said Thursday.

Construction crews at Carowinds are laying the foundations for four new rides in the new “County Fair” attraction.

The new attractions will take riders back to a 1950s fair with “home-grown thrills,” park officials said during a hard-hat tour of the site Thursday.

The rides include the Electro-Spin, The Zephyr, the Rock ‘N’ Roller, and the Do-Si-Do.

In addition to the County Fair rides, the park will transform into a “winter wonderland full of enchantment and holiday cheer” Thanksgiving weekend for WinterFest — a “celebration of the holiday season,” which runs until New Year’s.

The park opens March 25.
