The Carolinas' first double launch looping roller coaster. Jump into your getaway vehicle on Copperhead Strike and take off into a heartline roll before entering a shed for the first zero to 42 miles per hour launch in just 2.5 seconds. The steel track features a series of fast, tight, close-to-the-ground maneuvers, including air-time moments and five inverting elements.
