Carowinds Carolina Harbor Construction Tour 3/23/2016

In addition to today’s media event of Plants vs Zombies (which we will post more about later,) Carowinds also took us on the final construction tour of Carolina Harbor.

This is going to be quite short since the major stuff has already been covered, and the park is simply just trying to tweek things around for it’s launch on May 21, 2016.

95% of Blackbeard’s Revenge is now done. They just need to make some final adjustments to it. The pump house and equipment that will supply the attraction with water are also nearly complete.

Here’s a look at the new wave pool- Surf Club Harbor. This is meant for those that want a more wilder experience. The existing wave pool, Tidal Wave Bay, is meant for those that want a more milder experience. The pump house is almost done.
