Carowinds is a great park with kids of all ages 1-99. Enjoyed the Fury and Intimidator with the big kids and the smaller rides with the younger child. Lots of fun!!!

Yes you can, and there are lockers throughout the park that you HAVE to rent when you ride some of the rides. Fury 325 is one of those rides.
