Paramount Carowinds discounts are available from large discount sites such as DontPayFull.com, as of 2016. Grocery stores, fast food chains and hotels offer periodic Carowinds discounts as well. Frequent visitors may also save money by purchasing a season pass with optional dining upgrades. Group discounts are also available.
Discount sites may not update every time a coupon expires, so they may not always work. They may also link directly to Carowinds' own promotions, generally not providing any additional savings in so doing.
Carowinds offers three levels of season passes: silver, gold and platinum. All three include monthly payment plans, unlimited access to the park in summer and fall, bring a friend discounts, early park access and admission to Carolina Harbor. Gold members also receive free parking and admission to Dinosaurs Alive and SCarowinds. Platinum members receive access to all Cedar Fair parks in addition to everything gold members get. A meal plan may be attached to any membership, providing refreshments such as free food and drink or unlimited refills for an added fee.
