Carowinds announced a new chaperone policy Tuesday after false claims of a shooting that spread through the park created a chaotic scene.
Under the new policy, guests 17 years old or younger will not be allowed in the park without a chaperone during SCarowinds events.. Chaperones must be at least 21 years old and provide a valid photo ID with their date of birth at ticket entry.
While authorities said no one was shot Saturday night during an incident, the situation turned into a scary situation for families in attendance. In the release, park officials say they hope this new policy continues to keep people safe
