That looks nothing like it has anything to do with snakes, unless there are snakes that inhabit farms. I wonder how those ppl who made those slightly clickbaity "Carowinds 2019 Copperhead Strike prediction/layout" titled videos will react if it turns out the ride won't be called "Copperhead Strike."
Cereal is soup. Change my mind.

Copperhead Strike is a pretty terrible name lol I hope it isn't named that.

This feels like an excuse for another Timbers ride... Wicked Timbers? Crazy Timbers? Just because it's gonna be made of steel doesn't mean they can't give it a Timbers name!

Sweltering Timbers? Since they have a ride called Shivering Timbers at another Cedar Fair park, it only makes sense.

There's barely correlation between any of these signs other than the time period wtf
Ok but how desperate you have to be to voluntarily fly from another country to go to Thorpe?

Lol, White Lightnin' is a coaster that operated at Carowinds from 1977 to 1988. It was a Schwarzkopf weight drop launch shuttle loop. I think it points to the coaster being launched and the White Lightnin' used to sit on the plot of land this coaster is going on.

What's more interesting is that the park has posted some more teasers for the 2019 attraction:

No each park does their announcement individually
Some memes are meant to be kept
