Aeronautica Landing will be the highlight of Carowinds’ 50th anniversary celebrations. Guests will be able to soar the skies of Carolina in this latest expansion, the fourth rethemed area to be introduced at Carowinds since County Fair in 2017 and, most recently, Blue Ridge Junction in 2019. This new land is described by Carowinds as follows:

At the center of the 50th anniversary celebration will be Aeronautica Landing, a tribute to the Carolinas’ spirit of invention, exploration, and aviation, where guests can immerse themselves in the history and future of flight. Construction is now under way in the Crossroads areas of the park, which will be completely renovated and renamed as Aeronautica Landing, complete with the introduction of five new themed attractions opening in 2023 as well as a retheming of an existing ride, for a total of six rides.
