CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Constructions is currently underway at Carowinds for the expansion and renovation of Planet Snoopy, the kids' area of the amusement park.
Planet Snoopy has been renamed to Camp Snoopy featuring six new rides and attractions.
The expansion includes:
Camp Bus: Buck up on the wacky camp bus and take a ride that will lift guests up, down and all around
PEANUTS Trailblazers: Get behind the wheel of a Jeep-themed vehicle and burn rubber on a small, round speedway
Kite Eating Tree: Ride along in a kite vehicle that takes guests 20 feet to the top of the tree and gently brings them back down
Pig Pen's Mud Buggies: Guests will "drive" around the popular Pig Pen character while bouncing on a bumpy ride
Woodstock Whirlybirds: Spin around in an oversized bird's nest on this classic teacup ride
Beagle Scout Acres: This 8,0000-square-foot climb and play area, located behind Wilderness Run (formerly names Lucy's Crabby Cabbies) provides plenty of room to run, play and climb with lots of shade
The carousel has been moved to Carousel Park Plaza, near the Vortex. In its place crews are installing a fountain with seating and shady pergolas.
The Snoopy Boutique and Snack Shack is being renovated and renamed to Camp Store and Camp Cookout with a new wilderness theme. New air conditioned restrooms are also under construction.
The Great Pumpkin Fest and WinterFest will continue through 2018.
