FORT MILL, S.C. (AP) - Carolina Harbor Waterpark is taking shape at Carowinds, the theme park that straddles the South Carolina-North Carolina state line south of Charlotte.

Local media outlets report that reporters got a glimpse Wednesday of the construction of the 25-acre water complex that’s being built where the old Thunder Road roller coaster once stood.

A Carowinds spokeswoman said Thursday the expanded waterpark is scheduled to open in May.

It will feature Seaside Splashworks, a multi-level children’s play area with a more-than 400 gallon bucket that will tip and splash the kids.

Blackbeard’s Revenge is a six-story attraction with three water slides. There’s also the Surf Harbor Club, a wave pool that will feature 6-foot waves.

This story has been corrected to show the waterpark will open in May, rather than on May 1.
