CHARLOTTE, N.C. - School's out, the heat is on and Carowinds is getting ready for the fun.  Wilson was out at the park to give us a preview of the newest editions in Boomerang Bay.  Two new great water slides at the park...Surfer's Swell and Dorsal Fin Drop will open in Boomerang Bay on Friday just in time for the summer fun and excitement.  Surfer's Swell travels a total of 263 feet of twists and turns while the Dorsal Fin travels 351 feet before ending through a corkscrew exit.

Wilson was trying to be first in line for the new water slides, but that privilege belongs to a great group of kids with the YMCA.  He did go inside the slide...without the give us a look at the thrill riders can expect. 

The water slides are not the only additions at Carowinds this season.  Be sure to check out everything new as well as park hours and admission at Carowinds website HERE.
