Carowinds is implementing new safety regulations this weekend for visitors who are 15 years old and younger. This is in response to an uptick in incidents of “unruly and inappropriate behavior” observed throughout the industry, according to Carowinds.

“All guests ages 15 years old or younger must be accompanied by a chaperone who is at least 21 years old in order to be admitted to, or remain in, the park after 4:00 p.m. local time to close. The chaperone must present a valid government-issued photo identification with date of birth at ticket entry. One (1) chaperone may accompany no more than ten (10) guests ages 15 or younger per day,” according to a statement from the park.

These measures are being put in place to safeguard the wellbeing of park guests. The new policy applies to all park visitors within the specified age range, including school groups and other youth-oriented activities.
