Copperhead Strike ~ Carowinds 2019 New Coaster
Today we learned what Granny has truly been cookin’! Copperhead Strike, a twisted, beautiful entanglement of steel with 2 launches will debut at the park next season!
Copperhead Strike is a getaway car racing through farmlands and begins with a jo-jo roll right after leaving the station. Riders then head through the barn and then into the first launch!
The ride continues with over half a mile of total track including twists turns and more:
- 3,255 total feet of track
- 5 inversions
- 2 launches
- 1st: 0-42 mph in 2.5 seconds
- 2nd 35-50 mph in 2 seconds
- 3- 16 passenger trains
The coaster takes up over 5 acres of land and includes many low to the ground maneuvers
Your ready!!! Let’s take a virtual on this crazy ride debuting next year:
MACK Rides is definitely bringing a masterpiece to the Carolinas
You can hear the excitement in everyone from the park as well!
I love this first loop after the initial launch:
No coaster is complete without an over-banked turn!
