MiA should kill two birds with one stone and get a Larson Looper.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

I can't believe this park has gone through such a drastic transformation since 2010. It really makes you think about how quickly CF could turn around a park like WoF if they thought that it would pay off. CF's big four parks are impressive. All four of them have solid line-ups, well rounded attractions, great atmospheres, and giga coasters. Wait... (Crosses fingers)

I just swallowed a whole donkey!

This post is for the Copperhead skeptics. I was once one of you, but laying eyes on this thing destroyed all my doubts. The turns are TIGHT, especially the one after the inverted top hat. It is small, but that is good. The relatively low speeds wont be problem here. The track is so twisted together it's truly exciting. This will be one of Mack's signature rides. It has the potential to be the Maverick of the south.

New guy here. This post is for the copperhead skeptics. I was once one of you, but laying eyes on this thing has destroyed all doubts. The turns are TIGHT, especially after the cut back. It is small, but it is so twisted together it is truly exciting. The relatively low speeds wont be a problem here. Copperhead will be one of Mack's signature rides. This has the potential to be the Maverick of the south.

Question for any Carowinds locals, I’ll be visiting the park tomorrow for Winterfest. How busy does the park typically get on WF Saturdays? Does Afterburn or any other ride have Fast Lane and/or Single Rider lines available?
