I saw both halves. If you???re wondering why it stops at the second launch, that???s because the engineers need to check and adjust the coaster train in its current place before launching again.

Sorry, I meant I watched both halves on YouTube. I saw Copperhead Strike up close during the ACE Winter Warm-Up construction tour, but they wouldn???t test it for us.

Love the functional headlights! Love it when parks actually have those, makes night rides so much more interesting! :D
