Carowinds Tombstones

Carowinds Tombstones

I’ve always loved the hidden details at the Disney parks and I love seeing them in other parks, like Carowinds and Dollywood. I love the little nods to staff and park history.

On a few recent visits to Carowinds, I had the chance to photograph a few of the tombstones in the different areas. I thought it was pretty obvious that they were referring to former and present Carowinds employees.

Do you know any of the employees?

Let’s take a look at some of the Carowinds Tombstones!

My favorite tombstone is very simple and dedicated to a very special person in Carowinds’ history!

March 28, 1921
November 9, 1978

This tombstone is dedicated to E. Pat Hall, the Charlotte-area businessman that decided to build a Disneyland-style park bordering the states of North Carolina and South Carolina.

And we’re glad he did!

Make sure to check out the Carowinds Tombstones all over the park, especially during SCarowinds.
