The Copperhead Strike at Carowinds is now officially open.
It’s the first double-launch roller coaster in the Carolinas and goes from zero to 42 mph in just 2.5 seconds. And it doesn’t let up there. A second launch midway through the ride will thrust riders from 35 mph to 50 mph in just 2 seconds.
Riders will experience a series of fast, tight, close-to-the-ground maneuvers and flip upside down five times – the most of any double launch coaster in North America.
Copperhead Strike goes full throttle for the full 2 minutes and 24 seconds along 3,255 feet of steel.
Are you ready?
