I like how they're theming the station. Looks better than the standard Cedar Fair "warehouse" motif.

Wow! I gotta say, they're doing an excellent job with not only this ride, but everything going on around it.

They're actually putting in PAVERS instead of just flat boring concrete *cough* Six Flags *cough*

And that fireplace, my gawd, that is not a cheap addition!

Hat's off to Carowinds and their new installation, this actually looks like a ride I'd make a trip out of my way to go actually ride Copperhead Strike and enjoy the other festivities at the park.

Wow the theming and style of the new area and the station building is looking to be on the same level as SDC/DW. I will be curious to see the finished product. :)

Really happy to see how my childhood hometown park has blossomed in the last five years. This whole new area looks fantastic. Can't wait to make my way back and ride it.

It wasn't publicly stated.

Donkeys give me orgiastic scream!

Can't wait for this! I'll be there March 22-23.

Also planning a week long trip to Florida in April and finishing up at Coaster Campout at Carowinds April 26-27. It's not much of a bargain, since we have platinum passes and meal plan, but the cool factor of camping out in a park and 1.5 hours of ERT on Copperhead Strike after park close should make it a cool experience. Anybody else ever done this one?
