More employees will be needed as the park features more rides and attractions than ever.
Last summer, park officials announced the Carolinas’ first double-launch roller coaster, Copperhead Strike, will open in 2019. The coaster will be more than half a mile of turns and inversions, lasting more than two minutes and reaching more than 40 mph in 2.5 seconds.
Copperhead Strike is part of a seven-acre country-themed area to include Blue Ridge Country Kitchen and other rides. In late 2019, a 130-suite hotel will open. It will be the first run by Carowinds.
Opened in 1973, Carowinds has grown into a 400-acre theme park on the North Carolina and South Carolina border with more than 60 rides, shows and attractions. It has 14 rollercoasters and a 26-acre water park, Carolina Harbor.
