It's not on the benefits page for Carowinds and every park I've been to I've always asked and they look at me cluelessly. Even had them scan me at Dominion and the computer specifically said no discounts available for Fast Lane. Never hurts to try :-P


Alright thank you very much!

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

POST REMOVED!!!

Once again, why do we have to keep reminding people to

PLEASE WAIT UNTIL TPR CAN POST OFFICIAL NEWS

Seriously, it doesn't make you look "cool" that you were the first to post something, it doesn't help in any way, it just make the admins have to do MORE WORK and hate you just a little bit more each time we have to write something like this. :?r

That double-up launch combo looks great. I wouldn't want to be the type of enthusiast who bitches about Copperhead Strike. I don't understand the skeptics about this ride.

I agree. This coaster has a lot going for it, particularly the four major hang time moments (jojo roll, both loops, and top hat) as well as a sweet ejector hill, airtime hill launch, and super comfortable and open-air restraints. The theme and colors are also fantastic. I can’t wait to ride it sometime in the next couple years.

Dude I've already seen so many people comment and complain about it haha. Like come on, this coaster wasn't meant to be no super balls to wall intense launch coaster and not every launch coaster has to be that.

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

Awesome. This has me officially impressed. The hills and turns look punchier than I expected. I am super curious what it will feel like to be accelerating over a hill. And yeah right into another and the top hat with hang time...deff a sweet section.

Enthusiasts are....ridiculous lol
Have realistic expectations. Ya know we should expect a top tier ride or the next maverick. Likewise just because something isn't that doesn't mean people should shred it, but they will.
Top 10 Steel: Steel Vengeance, Wicked Cyclone, Fury 325, Millennium Force, Storm Chaser, Skyrush, Maverick, Goliath (SFoG), I305, Lightning Run
