Rides have been testing and lots of credible people are openly sharing it. I believe it. It's ballsy for Cedar Fair considering the fact that North Carolina is having a rise in cases (not because goin

The event has been live for like not even 5 hours.  Eeesh give people some time.

Coppherhead Strike looks awesome! It's great to finally get some larger-scale Mack coasters installed in the U.S. Of the coasters announced for next year, I'd have to say I'm most looking forward to this one.

Did they steal something from B&M's playbook with the jojo roll?

No because Intamin did it first.

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

 

That's literally the only reason I retained that little coaster nerd knowledge nugget.

This looks so good!

I loved the jojo roll on Hydra, but this whole ride looks fantastic. I have to imagine the launched airtime hill is going to be really cool.

Looks AWESOME. (Actually looks better than Blue Fire, which I really liked).

I love that the Great America coaster and now this coaster are incorporating air time bumps in their launches (or shortly thereafter) -- cool new development.

 

My favorite coaster announced so far, and there have been a lot of good ones (Kennywood's might still be the dark horse, but CW, SFMM, SFGaM and now this one all look great -- and UNIQUE).

 

2019 is shaping up nicely.

Ever since it was "leaked" that this would be a Mack (when the parts started showing up) I've been super excited about this project. Blue Fire and Icon are two rides I've been dying to try. This so far is the 2019 coaster I'm most excited for!

 

Also the whole new Blue Ridge Junction themed area sounds like a fantastic idea. Assuming the flyers will be coming back in this area. Looking forward to seeing what the other surprises are they mentioned to be announced later.

 

Hopefully this is the first coaster in a nice healthy business partnership between Mack and CF. I would love more Mack Rides to make their way to US parks!

I'm super happy to see Mack really getting more big coasters into the US, but the ending on this one seems a bit drawn out...dare I say "Great Bear-ish". At least the first part of the ride is awesome and long enough that I won't let that ending bother me!

There can never be enough Mack launch coasters! They are all fantastic, enjoyable rides. Dang, I am so jealous right now

 

When I saw the airtime hill during the second launch, I immediately thought of Pulsar. That's the best element on that ride.

I thought that a bit too, but it will depend on the speed of it, I think. The POV made everything feel very leisurely (and that may be the most accurate), but the third animation (I think it was a mix of off-ride and some POV) had everything sped up and those turns looked intense, so who knows?

The launch air-time hill, the compactness of it, this will be an awesome. It's like Maverick evolved into a beast.

 

I get what you mean by calling it Maverick but I think this one will be tamer yet tons of fun. I love Mack coasters and this will be an amazing addition to Carowinds!

 

Cedar Fair just crapped all over all Six Flags' 2019 additions. Well done!

This looks like a nice ride, but I think Maxx Force and West Coast Racers are also both just as strong. I don't expect every single Six Flags park to get a giant new coaster every single year, and I don't think that Cedar Fair is being that different from Six Flags by giving a couple of parks major new attractions, a couple of parks medium-sized new attractions, and then everything else.

 

Personally I think that Six Flags and Cedar Fair are about on par with each other if you look at the bigger picture. Just my personal thoughts...
