SCarowinds Announces No Bag Policy for 2021 Season

In these days, it's all about safety and trying to protect everyone so we call can have a ghoulishly good time while being scared shitless.  As to that, I'm not sure exactly what's prompted this new policy from Carowinds regarding the Scarowinds event, but they surely have a good reason...at least one would hope. 

Here's the official rule from the park's FAQ page:

Guests may not bring bags of any kind, including purses, backpacks, or diaper bags, into the park during SCarowinds. NOTE: Guests who require health accommodations may bring a bag no larger than 4.5” x 6.5” containing only medically necessary items into the park. All bags will be searched prior to entry.


As you can see, the policy is a blanket statement that includes all bags and that can be a problem as it will impact groups (women, disabled, etc) disproportionally and doesn't address other areas of ease to bring in contraband (cargo pants, hoodie pockets, jackets, etc). I'm not a fan of that at all and think there's better ways to go about dealing with the safety/contraband issue.

So, unless they change the policy, to all the other women who love all things that scream in the night, prepare to travel as light as possible and get creative with how to bring things that we need. 

Until next time...

Sweet Screams and Pleasant Nightmares!
