carowinds opening weekend

snoopy and pandaAfter taking a year off, we got season passes to Carowinds again this year, and everyone was excited to go for opening weekend.  We saw Snoopy and stopped for a quick picture and then made a beeline for Panda Express for lunch-- the kids really missed it!

So excited to see Snoopy!!

camp snoopyThe kids area was completely transformed into Camp Snoopy and opened this year with six new rides!  We braved the cold (it was only about 40º outside!) and enjoyed a nearly empty Camp Snoopy which allowed the kids to ride things over and over and over!

The Flying Ace Balloon Race has always been one of Ellie's favorite rides!

The park was so empty that Ellie had a private ride on Charlie Brown's Wind Up!

beagle scout acres
Beagle Scout Acres was a new addition this year and the kids (big and little!) absolutely loved it!  They ran around exploring while the adults relaxed-- too bad there's not a Starbucks nearby!!

pigpen's mud buggies
Another new addition, PigPen's Mud Buggies, turned into the favorite new ride of the day and the kids rode it many times!

drop tower
Ellie wanted to go on the Kite Eating Tree and convinced the big kids to ride with her!

Since the big kids were such good sports in Camp Snoopy, we waited while they rode Afterburn nearly ten times in a row!

face paint
As a special treat (for using the potty at Carowinds!), Ellie got her face painted.  She sat patiently while the guy took his time getting it just right for her and she was so excited to see the finished result!
