Carowinds Debuts New Waterpark and Intra-Active 3-D Game

Carowinds is preparing to make a big splash this spring with the opening of the Carolina’s largest waterpark, Carolina Harbor, and the launch of the world’s first intra-active 3-D experience, Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare: 3Z Arena.

Carolina Harbor will occupy the area which formerly housed Boothbay Bay. Many new attractions will be added and the number of water slides at Carowinds will double. The new park will feature areas inspired by Myrtle Beach and Kitty Hawk. Other fun attractions include a six-story tall water slide, a giant 423-gallon tipping bucket that drenches everyone below, a new 27,000 square-foot wave pool and a four-person family raft slide.

The Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare experience will allow players to interact with the opposing team’s screen. Guests will step inside the state-of-the-art 3Z Arena complex complete with 3-D technology, massive screens, surround sound and motion-based seats. The hilarious and over-the-top shooter videogame drops players into a crazy, all-out battle between plants and zombies in their fight for suburbia.
