JoyFest is a gospel music centered festival with artists like Tasha Cobbs Leonard, Fred Hammond, Marvin Sapp and Tye Tribbett.
Carowinds has many fan favorite rides such as the Afterburner, Carolina Cyclone, The Intimidator, Nighthawk, and more famous in the last year - the Fury 325 - which is the world’s tallest and fastest “giga coaster.” The park also has something a little more toned down for the kids as well in the Peanuts-themed “Camp Snoopy”. And to cool off in the Summer months there is Boomerang Bay water park.
