Carowinds held a press conference this morning announcing all of the exciting things coming to their park in 2016.

The biggest announcement was the focus on their waterpark for 2016.  The waterpark will be getting a new name for 2016, Carolina Harbor.  There will also be several improvements throughout the waterpark for 2016 as well.

Blackbeard’s Revenge will be a new waterslide complex coming to the new waterpark.  It will feature several new slides, including the popular “drop capsules” and will stand six-stories high.



Other improvements include a new two-acre family area, sand volleyball courts, upgraded facilities and more.

Carowinds also announeced the addition of a 3,000 square foot Starbucks for 2016.

Carowinds will be making another announcement in October for something else as well.  What could it be? The video they showed during the press conference looked a lot like Plants vs. Zombies, a popular mobile video game.  Could we be seeing a Plants vs. Zombies dark ride?  Guess we will have to wait and see.
