Fairfield Inn & Suites Charlotte Arrowood Offers Special Packages for Halloween Haunt

Newly Renovated Hotel Near Carowinds Features Modern Rooms and Lobby

CHARLOTTE, NC--(Marketwired - Sep 19, 2013) - Who doesn't like a good scare now and again? This fall, celebrate the thrill of Halloween at the Fairfield Inn & Suites Charlotte Arrowood, where guests can save on the amusement park's annual Scarowinds Halloween Haunt with one- and two-night Carowinds hotel packages.

This newly renovated hotel near Carowinds amusement park puts guests just 3 miles from the thrills and chills of Halloween Haunt, and as the park's preferred hotel, it offers packages that include regular 1-day admission to the park for up to three guests (Halloween Haunt requires a separate ticket).

While the park is usually a hit for all ages, Scarowinds Halloween Haunt is so intense that only those ages 13 and older are allowed to experience it. Every Friday and Saturday night from now through September 28th, the park is taken over by zombies, psychotic clowns and other twisted characters; in October, Sundays are added to the lineup.

This season's highlights include Blood Drums, a stage show featuring the music and sights of a mesmerizing drum troupe; Mass Acres, where unsettled spirits await in the mist; and The Asylum, where the only way out is by facing horrific sights and sounds. This year also welcomes new attractions including London Terror, a frightening take on the popular city; Zombie High, where visitors need more than a hall pass to get out of class; and Scary Tales, giving well-loved fairy tales a grim twist.

Taking advantage of the Charlotte hotel packages gives guests the chance to experience the new renovations, which cover more than just a fresh coat of pain. The modernized lobby features flexible spaces for meeting, eating, relaxing and working, while the complimentary breakfast buffet is served in a bright, open new space. Guest rooms were also transformed with carpeting, modern soft seating, art work and wall coverings, gentle lighting and new mattresses.

A trip to Carowinds is perfect for family reunions and club retreats. For group bookings of eight or more rooms, contact Danielle Coufal in group sales at 704-319-5100, ext 402.
