Oh yeah I am in no way denying North Carolina is the better Carolina, just found the oversight funny between both Carowinds and Frontier.

My wife and I were stuck on it for about 20 minutes Saturday afternoon. Train wouldn't pull completely into the station. After about 20 minutes, they were manually removed from the ride.
I rode it later that evening. They got it working again. After riding copperhead I am not disappointed that MMXX at BGW is not as tall as anticipated. The airtime in Copperhead was comparable to Twisted timbers in certain parts, and just as smooth as an RMC.

Who wants to be my witness as I crush BOTH the American and Europe maps?

Humble brag: As a geography major one final was to label the map of the world. Of the 194 official countries, additional 6 non recognized countries.....I got 185 correct.

1. For my Freshman geography final exam, we had to identify (as appropriate) regional border conflicts; dates of independence; and European colonial power from which they got their freedom for every state in the world.

2. We are way off-topic here. Perhaps the discussion should return to issues more directly correlated to Copperhead Strike.

HOT TAKE ALERT:

This is what happens when elements right after a launch are intended to have a 'stall' effect. It's like they calculated the speeds and launches for middle of summer 90-ish heat as opposed to spring and fall 40-50 running time temps.
Has there been any valleying issues with CS? I've never heard of one happening.

I'll admit they've stopped there, but that's not a valley. The trains are programmed to e-stop at that location if the previous train isn't far enough in the brake run going into the station. There's tons of videos of that happening, including one that actually shows the e-stop occur.

I'll repeat: I haven't heard of any incident of CS valleying due to not making it through an element.

Went to Carowinds (04MAY2019), went straight to Copperhead Strike first thing, and trains were going!

Then we got into the station, waited an hour as they moved trains in and out of the garage and then eventually told us it was going to be closed for the foreseeable future that day... :(

Saw this on Reddit. I think it's pretty cool. Wish other parks would do this.

Edit: it's been discussed before that this company makes some that look very similar to Apollo and some other SEAS coasters but they aren't branded as such.
