New Attractions at Carowinds
Gearing up for a Myrtle Beach 2020 vacation? Check out these new attractions at Carowinds while you’re there.
Boogie Board Racer
Opening in 2020
Could Carowinds be any more AMAZING? Just wait! In 2020, the premier entertainment destination of the Carolinas adds even more to its lineup of more than 60 world-class rides, waterpark, live shows and incredible attractions – all served up with gracious Carolina hospitality.
This upcoming season, guests can experience the newest addition to Carowinds’ Carolina Harbor, Boogie Board Racer! Six racers will be able to compete against each other on this thrill ride, with some of the slides enclosed and some open to the sun. Regardless, each slide reaches fast speeds and goes through multiple passages. Riders will then enter a 360-degree loop before reaching a surprise drop into the splash zone.
Most exciting of all, this will be the fastest mat racing side in the Southeast!
