Carowinds power outages

- A bad cable is to blame for another power outage at Carowinds.

Just before noon Sunday the power went out again, impacting a portion of the amusement park.

Rides had to be shut down and a number of guests had to be evacuated.

Duke Energy quickly fixed the bad cable and the park re-opened. All rides were running expect for the Sane Dune Lagoon in the water park.

This is the second time the power has gone out at Carowinds.

Last Thursday a blown transformer left some riders dangling 200 feet in the air on The Windseeker ride.
