The classic amusement park’s new ride, WindSeeker, hoists riders to a lofty 301 feet high and swings them around at more than thirty miles per hour. Offering sweeping views of the city—and a temporary sense of weightlessness—it’s not for the faint of heart—or stomach. (Imagine swinging at thirty miles per hour from the top of the Westin.) But there’s nothing quite like a trip to Carowinds to make you feel like a kid again. 14523 Carowinds Blvd., 704-588-2600,
