Carowinds a Cedar Fair Park

Carowinds is a 398 acre thrill park that spans across both North Carolina and South Carolina.  In 2015, we debuted the Fury 325, which is the world’s tallest and fastest giga coaster. That will total 14 world class coasters, a 20 acre water park, and Planet Snoopy which is a 12 acre children’s area. Carowinds is in its 41st year of operation and is known for being the thrill capital of the southeast. At Carowinds we are looking for employees who are friendly, enjoy being outside and can work independently as well as part of a team. If this sounds like you, come and join us for a summer filled with fun.

About Charlotte, North Carolina:


Carowinds is just 13 miles outside of Charlotte. It is the largest metropolitan city in North Carolina and home to Charlotte Hornets (NBA), NASCAR Hall of Fame, and Bank of America. In this culturally rich city there is something for everyone. Spend your days off visiting a museum of the Levine Center for the Arts, going shopping at the 7th Street Public Market, and listening to live music at the Fillmore. Learn about the history of North Carolina and its part in the American Revolutionary War and WWI at The Charlotte Museum of History and find out why we are nicknamed the “Queen City” and “The Hornet’s Nest”.
