The water park originally opened as Ocean Island in 1982. In 1989, it was renamed to Riptide Reef. For the 1997 season, Paramount Parks invested $7 million in a 12-acre (49,000 m2) expansion and renamed the park to WaterWorks. Another major expansion occurred in 2006 adding a new Australian theme and changing the name to Boomerang Bay, a name shared with several water parks at other Cedar Fair amusement parks. In 2008, Cedar Fair added a 600,000-US-gallon (2,300 m3) wave pool, Bondi Beach, increasing the total size of the water park to 20 acres (81,000 m2). As part of the multi-year expansion at Carowinds, Boomerang Bay added Surfer's Swell and Dorsal Fin Drop for the 2014 season.

On August 27, 2015, Carowinds announced that Boomerang Bay would undergo a major expansion in 2016 and would be renamed Carolina Harbor. The expansion includes a new wave pool named Surf Club Harbor, 2 kiddie splash areas named Myrtle Turtle Beach and Kitty Hawk Cove, and a six story six-slide complex named Blackbeard's Revenge.And also a new play structure called Seaside Splashworks.
