kind of interesting to see an angle like that on a mat racer, but I guess you make things fit wherever you have space.
I haven't made it to their waterpark, but these are always good additions in my opinion

With the Grand Carnivale only lasting a few weeks in the year and knowing a few other CF parks had one this year, is this a traveling show that moves from park-to-park? Do the paraders travel with the show?

If both of those are true, then I like the idea of CF having traveling shows like this. If they can find workers willing to travel like this, I can see more of these occurring, especially for indoor shows (the Cirque show at Carowinds, for example).

So is this it carowinds new ride is just going to be a Matt racers slide for 2020? Nothing new will be announced in 2020 I mean yes their is a show coming but nothing in the dry park? Carowinds didn’t even have a announcement date for the new ride they just announced it. Usually they do this before announce new attractions right? What about dinosaurs alive and rip roaring rapids?

Dino Alive is gone, they've announced that.

RRR hasn't had an official announcement. My guess: it's gone, and they're just waiting for end-of-season to announce it, maybe even to tease a 2021 announcement for that area. Alternatively, they'll put up signage around that area later this year or early-season next year.

I'm assuming this is all we're getting for 2020, and I'm not that upset about it. I'm hoping we'll see some updates to buildings and infrastructure - things that wouldn't need a big NEW IN 2020 announcement.

2 + 2 = donkey!

Looks like an awesome follow-up to Copperhead Strike!

An awesome addition to the water park, went there last week and the one slide complex I was surprised the park didn't have was a mat racer. A very welcome addition to the park for 2020!

You're not gonna get a "by the way, our rapids didn't open this year" announcement. It's gone and there will probably never be anything spoken of it again.

I was thinking more of a "Say goodbye to RRR, but say hello to SOMETHING NEW IN 2021!"

Obviously, something better, but I'm not exactly a marketing major.
