First Double-Launch Coaster Coming to N.C. this Year

These fast, tight, and close to the ground movements will leave you breathless. Launching riders from 0 to 42 mph in 2.5 seconds, the Copperhead Strike is making its way to the Carolinas. 

Carowinds will be opening the Copperhead Strike Spring 2019 ready for riders all summer long. The ride is the first double-launch coaster to open in North Carolina. The double-launch means that not only is there the 0 to 42 mph launch at the beginning of the ride, but halfway through will be another accelerated launch to get you through the last half of the ride. Hold on tight, because it's going to be a rough ride.

Get a mini adrenaline rush by watching the POV animation now!
