Construction on the newest coaster at Carowinds is complete.
Copperhead Strike is now ready to open along with the park for the 2019 season. Measuring in at a whopping 82 feet tall at its peak, the coaster lasts for nearly two and a half minutes and gives riders the chance to experience FIVE head-over-heels inversions along the way.
In addition to this, the ride is the first double-launch roller coaster in the Carolinas, meaning that riders will get not one but two bursts of speed during the experience. With an initial thrust of 0-42 mph in 2.5 seconds followed by a second thrust at the ride’s halfway point that takes the riders from 35-50 mph in 2 seconds, this is a must-try for all park visitors who have a need for speed!
Visitors to the park will have the opportunity to test out this memorable thrill ride for themselves in just a few short months when it opens in the spring. In the meantime, check out the point-of-view footage of the final pieces of the track being put in place below!
