FORT MILL, S.C. (AP) - The Carowinds theme park on the South Carolina-North Carolina state line has opened for 2013.



The amusement park opened for the year late Friday morning.



Dinosaurs Alive! Is the big new attraction. It includes 32 life-sized dinosaurs in a five-acre section that use to house the picnic area.



Some of the dinosaurs roar and move on command.



The attraction includes a 3-D movie that is included in park admission and the dinosaur display that carries a $5 per person charge.



There is a new picnic and catering center that can feed up to 15,000 people a day.



The park has also refurbished its classic wooden roller coaster, Thunder Road, to make it smoother.
