There are several ways to purchase Carowinds tickets, and there are pros and cons to each one.

In this page, we will cover those different types of ways to purchase tickets, including if you can buy Carowinds tickets at the gate, as well as what you can expect from each method.

    Can You Buy Carowinds Tickets at the Gate?

    You can absolutely purchase Carowinds tickets at the gate when you arrive. You'll simply walk up to the entrance and head towards the Full Service Ticket Window, and wait in line to purchase your ticket.

    After you purchase your ticket, you can head towards the gate and have your ticket scanned to enter the park.

    Perks of Buying at the Gate

    If you are unsure what the different type of tickets offered are, what they mean, and which one would be best for you....

    The park attendant at the ticket window will be more than happy to answer your questions, and help you make a well informed decision.

    Purchasing Online

    You're also able to purchase online from two different places, directly from the Carowinds site, or from an authorized theme park ticket reseller.

    Buying on the Carowinds Site

    When you purchase directly from the Carowinds site, it's an identical experience as it is buying it at the ticket window, however you won't have the live interaction to have your questions answered.

    However, you can simply call Carowinds's phone number (704) 588-2600 if you have any questions.

    Additionally, Carowinds offers a very useful Frequently Asked Questions page where most of the common questions are answered.

    Theme Park Center

    Theme Park Center (also known as us) is an authorized theme park ticket reseller that guarantees authentic Carowinds tickets, and our prices will always be cheaper than the gate.

    And there’s no catch.

    Some online ticket retailers require you to take time out of your vacation and sit through a lengthy timeshare tour or drive out of your way to their offices to pickup your tickets.

    That’s no way to spend a vacation. We provide you the best prices instantly and hassle free.

    You'll simply receive your purchased tickets within seconds to the email address that you provided, exactly as you would directly from the park.

    Perks of Purchasing Online

    Purchasing online requires a little research to figure out which ticket will be right for you, which will save you a lot of time.

    When you purchase online (Carowinds or from us), you can start your day with skipping a line completely.

    Rather than waiting for what can seem like an eternity during the busier days to purchase your ticket, you can head directly to the gate and scan your ticket to enter the park.

    Customer Support

    Our customers always come first. We have a dedicated customer service team to walk you through ticket purchasing, answer questions and in the unlikely event any issues were to arise – we’ve got you covered. We’re here to give you peace of mind, so you can enjoy your vacation worry free.
