CHARLOTTE – Carowinds debuts a gruesome new maze this season when it transforms into SCarowinds, one of the largest Halloween attractions in the Carolinas, through Oct. 29.
Guests can experience more than a dozen haunted attractions and live shows, hundreds of monsters lurking in the midway and some of the top roller coasters in the nation.
New attractions also await at The Great Pumpkin Fest, the family-friendly daytime fall festival featuring “Peanuts” characters, returning Saturdays and Sundays through Oct. 29 in Planet Snoopy.
At the Great Pumpkin Fest, kids can stroll through Linus’ Great Pumpkin Patch to decorate a mumpkin (mini-pumpkin), follow the path of Peppermint Patty’s Hay Bale Maze or meet some furry friends at the petting zoo.
SCarowinds’ newest haunt maze, Depths of Darkness, traps guests in horror as they journey into the mind of the infamous State Line Slasher. Authorities claim to have finally captured the slasher, but the maze reveals the terrifying truth as guests wind through a sinister labyrinth with mind-bending frights around every corner.
Guests can scream in excitement at live performances by Catch Blood Drums (punk rock), a Rocktoberfest (1970s and 1980s arena rock) or Skeleton Crew (acrobatics). Throughout the event, more than 500 monsters roam the park, stirring suspense and screams.
