— Carowinds amusement park announced on Tuesday a season pass program for the summer of 2009.

The WOW PASS costs $59.99 for park visitors ages 3 and older and includes unlimited admission to the 112-acre combination amusement and water park from March 28-Sept. 7. The pass does not include parking.

The pass is an effort to lure families who might be cutting back on vacation spending, Carowinds' Marketing Director John Taylor said.

“This new program will allow families to spend more time with one another, enjoy the fun of a world-class amusement park, and still save money in the long run,” he said.

The WOW PASS is available for sale from www.carowinds.com or at the Carowinds main gate on any public operating day.
