Duke power crews have restored power to Carowinds Amusement Park on the South Carolina-North Carolina border near Rock Hill. The park will be open again to the public about 3:00 p.m. today.
Officials say at 8:00 a.m. a tree fell on a power line causing power failure at the park. The park was not open at the time.
Work crews are conducting safety checks before the gates open again. Park officials are extending the operating hours and offering reduced ticket prices.
