Carowinds, the 112-acre combination amusement and water park located on the border of the Carolinas near Charlotte, has announced a new program to help families on a tight budget still enjoy a summer of fun and excitement for less with the introduction of the 2009 WOW PASS.

The WOW PASS program allows consumers to receive unlimited admission to Carowinds any public operating day from March 28 until September 7, 2009 for only $59.99 per person (ages 3 and older). This program does not include any benefits, parking, or admission to SCarowinds’ Halloween Haunt.

This program was designed by Carowinds as a response to park patrons who are more budget-conscious due to the current economic environment. For $13 more than a regular one day admission ticket, the WOW PASS is a cost-effective alternative for money-saving families who have had to cut back on vacation expenses for 2009.

“As the economic climate evolves in the region, so must we,” John Taylor, Director of Marketing at Carowinds, stated. “This new program will allow families to spend more time with one another, enjoy the fun of a world-class amusement park, and still save money in the long run.”

A WOW PASS may only be purchased at or at the Carowinds main gate on any public operating day. Program is not valid on previous purchases.
