Here’s one great new thing: Carowinds is boasting the Carolina’s first double launch roller coaster – Copperhead Strike!

As the first double launch roller coaster in the Carolinas, Copperhead Strike delivers twice the boost and twice the bite. “Double launch” means not only does the ride take off at an incredible 0 to 42 miles per hour in 2.5 seconds, but midway through a second thrust of acceleration launches you into the next half of the experience. A series of fast, tight, close-to-the-ground maneuvers are tangled with five head-over-heels inversions — the most of any double launch coaster in North America. What’s more, this serpent of a ride never lets up throughout the entire chase – over half a mile of steel and adrenaline.

Ready for this backwoods adventure? Coming spring 2019, it will be ready for you – only at Carowinds. Check out the promotional video HERE!

Here’s the story that goes with the fun and thrills of this new coaster:

“Everybody knew about her delicious concoction. Best for miles around. She’d won blue ribbons at the county fair for 40 years with that jam, but no more. Granny Byrd’s recipe is gonna be yours. But to get your hands on it, you gotta head way, way out to a run-down, broken-down farm at the far edge of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Word has it there are lots of copperheads around there, so be careful.

When you get to the farm’s huge barn – that’s got to be the headquarters of her jam operation with all that banging and clanging – you get the strange sense that something’s not right. Peeking in, you see that she’s cookin’ something alright – and in big, copper vats – but it sure ain’t jam. It’s something with quite a bit more bite that could get you in a huge heap of trouble if you’re caught with it.

After a sudden commotion, a shrill voice hollers, “Trespassers! Y’all git outta here!” A gun cocks and you high-tail it out. Your getaway vehicle? Carowinds’ newest thrill ride, Copperhead Strike. ” Are you ready for the thrill ride of your life? Come try Copperhead Strike.
