Carowinds has become
quite an addiction for my family. And like family, we missed the theme park over
the summer when it closed due to the pandemic.
So my wife and two daughters were beyond thrilled to see them re-open with a surprising treat called “Taste of the Season,” available on select days through Dec. 20.
Their marketing team is telling people to “Savor the holidays’ flavors” at Carowinds’ Taste of the Season. It’s a wonderful outdoor food festival where you simply purchase a Tasting Card to choose among 30 samples of holiday sweets and savories.
It’s a scrumptious bonus to enjoy between riding the Copperhead Strike or listening to the Christmas cheer from a long list of musicians.
As a college employee at DisneyWorld, I was taught how to bring the magic and exceed expectations for park-goers. Well, the Cedar Fair Entertainment Company is mastering that same energy here in Fort Mill at the winter festival at Carowinds, and it’s an experience I highly recommend for your holiday list.
I’ve been twice already, and you can tell the park engineers planned well while they were closed.
They set up social distancing signs and trained staff on ensuring park-goers wear their masks and eat in designated area. It’s all part of their commitment to help reduce the spread of germs.
Capacity is limited, and reservations are required, so I would not wait.
