Carowinds Amusement Park Going Cashless Starting August 23rd

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Beginning Monday, August 23rd guests will be asked to leave their cash at home when they visit Carowinds as the amusement park moves to all cashless payments.

Carowinds officials say all in-park locations will only accept credit, debit, Apply Pay, and or Google Pay as forms of payment.

Officials say “At Carowinds, we want you to have an AMAZING time with your friends and family, without sacrificing safety in any way. That’s why we’re moving toward all cashless payments throughout the park. Simply swipe or tap your credit card, debit card, or smart device with Apple Pay or Google Pay where you would normally use cash. It’s faster, safer, and always secure.

If you don’t have a card, the park will have Cash-to-Cash Kiosks on-site where guests can convert their cash into a prepaid debit card that they can use anywhere (not just inside the park).

Officials say while Apple Pay and Google Pay can be used inside the park, it will not be accepted as a form of payment at the parking tolls.
