FORT MILL, S.C. Carowinds says it will be making it "biggest announcement" of its history on Aug. 21.
The amusement park has been putting clues on its Facebook page as well as making special deliveries Wednesday to news media outlets.
The delivery? A woman in a bee keeping outfit dropped off a bug net that has been zapped. The mesh that forms the closed end of the net appears to have been burned.
A card with the bug net promises "you're gonna need a much bigger net to capture the thrills of the 2015 Carowinds season."
A large construction site at the park is surrounded with a wooden fence with peek holes. A sign that asks, "Can lightning strike twice?" hangs on the fence.
The park has added rides and made several upgrades in recent years. In 2013, Carowinds announced a $50 million expansion. New to the park this year are several water slides and the Harmony Hall dining area.
