Carowinds, which has been closed since March, has announced that they will be reopening in a limited capacity for Taste of the Season Outdoor Holiday Experience.
This event will take place on select days from November 21st to December 20th, 2020, from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. (Scroll down to see the dates.)
Tickets will not be sold at the gate. You’ll have to purchase a ticket online in advance, and that ticket will serve as your reservation for a specific day.
Season passes will be valid. You’ll still have to make a reservation, though.
Passholder reservations begin November 9th and daily tickets will be sold starting November 11th. Since capacity is limited, tickets may sell out, so you should make your reservation early.
The event will feature 30 tasting experiences spread throughout the park. You’ll purchase a Taste of the Season Food Tasting Card in order to take part in the tasting.
The cost is:
- $29.99 for just admission and parking
- $39.99 for admission, tasting (3 tastings), and parking
- $54.99 for admission, tasting (6 tastings) and parking
The best deal will be to purchase a Taste Bundle that includes park admission, parking and a 3-item or 6-item Tasting Card, but if you buy a Tasting Card at the park, these are the prices (not including admission):
- $30 + tax for 6 tastings
- $45 + tax for 9 tastings
- $6.99 + tax for individual tastes
You do need to use up all your tastings on the day of your visit.
Besides the tastings, the event features:
- Some rides, including family rides in Camp Snoopy, Copperhead Strike, Afterburn and Ricochet
- Dance party
- Reindeer Treat Trail — Santa’s reindeer shared some favorite treats at nine treat stations in Christmas Carousel Park
- Games, including skill contests and “win every time” games
- Holiday décor
Carowinds will operate at a reduced capacity, though the online ticketing, and will require masks to be worn by everyone age 2 and older, whenever they’re not eating or drinking at a table or bench.
