Carowinds will build its first double launch coaster for 2019, when Copperhead Strike opens at the Carolinas' theme park.
The Mack Rides launch coaster will feature a zero-to-42 mph launch in two seconds and a second launch from 35 to 50 mph. Riders will go through five inversions along the 3,255 feet of track.
Carowinds' story on the coaster is that you've snuck out to "a run-down, broken-down farm at the far edge of the Blue Ridge Mountains" to order to get your hands on Granny Byrd's prize-winning jam recipe. But it turns out that Granny ain't cooking jam on her farm and she's fixin' to take care of you for finding out. Your choice? The business end of granny's gun... or a ride on Copperhead Strike.
Copperhead Strike will anchor a newly-themed, seven-acre Blue Ridge Junction land in the park.Tweet
