I personally wasn't a fan of the rapids ride, but it had the longest line by far when I visited in 2016.

Maybe they will either build a new rapids or log flume in Dinos area when they go extinct?...

Maybe they're retheming it like Knott's is doing to their rapids ride?

Interesting... so they are pulling a Silver Dollar City by quietly removing their rapids ride?
Also surprised by the lack of Promo on the map for Copperhead Strike.

I just made a donkey in No Limits!

Word on the street is that they're waiting to see how Knott's new theme work out before deciding what to do.

Donkeys give me orgiastic scream!

Oh wow, I never rode this rapids ride. Walked by it several times. It was in such a prime location for a coaster to be honest— lots of land, near the front gate, you could always make it interact with Fury if need be. A log flume running under Fury would be amazing, and give the park a much-needed successor to Thornberrys after they tore down Whitewater Falls.
1. The Voyage 2. Intimidator 305 3. Maverick 4. Skyrush 5. Mindbender (Galaxyland) 6. Fury 325 7. Kumba 8. Goliath (Georgia) 9. The Beast 10. Phoenix
I’ve ridden 139 Coasters, and have been a coaster enthusiast since 2013.

POST REMOVED!!!!

FFS, people... Haven't we learned by now that when there is some new official roller coaster news to WAIT FOR US TO POST IT?!!?!?!?

Posting it yourself doesn't make you look any cooler to the owners of this site. In fact, it makes us have to do MORE WORK because of your impatience....

Carowinds have sent us some awesome new footage of the first Copperhead Strike test run! Including a POV shot of the JoJo roll! Who else is excited about this new coaster?

My apologies for my above post.

Anywho, the ride looks fantastic and every new video I see of the progress on the ride gets me more and more excited for opening day. And the trains still look fabulous :lover:
