Assuming this poll is really "which ride are you most looking forward to based on the conceptual designs" (because, obviously, no one has ridden anything for their to be any "battle"), I responded Copperhead Strike because it seems like the most complete ride of three, or at least the one I will enjoy the most because it *appears* to have some launching, some airtime moments, some drops and some curves, and lasts more than 30 seconds (compared to MaxxForce).
In terms of which "launch" are you most excited about, the obvious answer is Maxx Force -- by a landslide.
All rides look awesome but I feel like Maxx Force is intriguing in the sense that it's a total wildcard. We sort of know what we're going to get with the other two. That doesn't make it the "best" but it's definitely the most interesting one to follow.
I'm most excited about Copperhead Strike because it is at my home park and the only one I will definitely ride in 2019. And I love that Carowinds is getting a launch coaster. I like the anticipation and build-up from a lift hill, but there is something in the instant gratification of a launch that I really like. As someone who almost exclusively rides coasters, it will be great to have something with re-ride potential other than Fury, Intimidator, and Afterburn.
That said, Maxx Force looks to be more intense, so I might try to squeeze SFGam in on the second trip of 2019.
