P. 403 - Park opening for a limited Holiday Event!

Recommended Posts

WOW! Definitely my favorite announcement of 2019! This looks like a ton of fun! (And it has the comfiest trains on the planet!)

 

Very glad it's not spinning and I love the big bump in the second launch - Thanks Carowinds

I don’t think you get what I’m saying at all.  As a fan, I’m really glad they opened Carowinds for like a month even though this event was really stupid because I got to ride two coasters and I w

So we went to Taste of Carowinds yesterday since we’re visiting the in-laws who live ten minutes away. Before going I was confused as to why this event was even a thing and after going I’m infini

I really need parks to get their act together by next season. We're clearly still going to be operating in a very covid positive world, but many parks seem to be doing a good job...just copy those!

Was the entirety of Six Flags just upstaged by a single Cedar Fair park?

 

A bold strike indeed. Looks fantastic. And it's the revenge of the Jojo roll!

I am very very happy with my recent purchase of a KD platinum pass. I've wanted to get down to Carowinds for a while, looks like 2019 is the year. This looks GREAT! Totally up my alley.

 

Is that an airtime hill during the 2nd launch? Haha wut?

Wooooahhhh I love everything about it! The atmosphere, launch house, weird bump in the second launch, all of the twisty bits and inversions. Looks like I might have a new favorite at Carowinds! This will be a great compliment to Fury and Afterburn, and actually give me something to look forward to in the middle of the park.

The best part about this new coaster to me is the 2nd launch with airtime, and it's a great fit for Carowinds. I wonder if other parks will get Mack launched coasters due to this new partnership. I could see Worlds of Fun and maybe Dorney get one sometime in the future.

THAT'S WHAT I SAID! I could practically feel the airtime just sitting in my chair at work watching the video. Can't wait to see what it feels like in person!

The thing I love about these Mack launch coasters (I've been on Helix and Blue Fire) is that they aren't absolutely extreme, balls-to-the wall thrill machines. They're just downright fun and highly re-rideable. That's exactly what this hobby is about - FUN. It doesn't have to be the tallest, fastest, etc. This is my most anticipated ride for next year!

OK, I've gone back and updated the post with a LOT of photos! The park was very generous with the materials they sent and I cannot thank them enough!

One thing the Cedar Fair parks do well are the promotional and schematic photos they release with every new ride announcement.

 

Copperhead Strike looks fabulous and no matter what announcement has been made today we all end up winners. It’s been a great day full of rides to look forward to.

I'm happy with all the announcements from both chains. Did they steal something from B&M's playbook with the jojo roll?

Oh, I am too, but I'm so much more excited for Copperhead Strike. My Dollywood trip next year just turned into a two-park trip...

No because Intamin did it first.

You can even hear me in that video say "...and Hydra thought they were first!"
