The launch barn is nearing completion and the Miami River Lumber Company would be proud. Inside the barn, you'll get a glimpse of Granny's jam-making operation. You may even learn a few things about her secret recipe.


^^One of those things that makes this interest feel juvenile. Other than that, Copperhead Strike looks great.

The park has released a new BLOG post and it really gets you excited for the coaster and the new area and shows off some theme elements!

If the theme wants to stay realistic at all "Granny" will keep that plastic wrap on the train and seats .

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

It's a shame the live cam is so bad at Carowinds. Would love to watch when this thing starts testing.

Nerd alert, but I am very glad the seat belts (as we expect from Cedar Fair) clip in front like a typical shoulder harness rather than a lap belt. This should make operations much smoother. Also love the colors and this whole coaster in general!
Steel: 176 / Wood: 32 / Total: 208
Home Parks: Knott's (when home), Lagoon (at school)
Favorite Coaster: Intimidator 305

The only thing better than a naked woman is a naked donkey!

Ooh, pretty. Looks similar to Time Traveler's seats, and those are very comfortable.

This B&M donkey is so smooth!
