Carowinds, which straddles the North/South Carolina border just outside Charlotte, where the Carolina Panthers play, has gotten itself into a bit of a Twitter feud with Elitch Gardens, located in Denver. The amusement park trash talking in preparation for this weekend’s Super Bowl started on Thursday, when Elitch Gardens, supporting the hometown Broncos, responded to the Panthers, who had pounced first:

It looks like this Twitter war may be waged straight through Sunday’s Super Bowl 50. Keep tabs on Carowinds and Elitch Gardens on Twitter for more!
