This incredible new “green” show was created for Carowinds by world-renowned lighting designer Andrew Strain, the creator of award-winning light displays in California, New York and London. “I was able to go crazy, ” said Strain. “It’s a show for families, so I had a lot of freedom to use as much color and movement as I could, and I had a blast doing it. I created a light show the whole family can walk through and enjoy—something which adds to the overall park experience.”
