Copperhead Strike Double Launch Roller Coaster

copperhead strike

Copperhead Strike Double Launch Roller Coaster is coming to Carowinds in spring of 2019. It will be the Carolinas first double launch coaster. “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 from 35 mph to 50 mph in 2 seconds.

You will experience a series of fast, tight, close-to-the-ground maneuvers and flip upside down in five head-over-heels inversions — the most of any double launch coaster in North America.
