Copperhead Mountain Coaster


We had a free weekend and needed to get out of the house, so we decided to head to Branson.  Well the only mountain coaster currently operating is Copperhead at Shepard's Adventure Park, so I guess that will have to do

This is still the newest of the three mountain coasters in the area

So the lift is actually at the end of the ride, but obviously I wasn't going to photograph during the "zoom zoom" portion of the ride

The "zoom zoom" portion features a lot of winding snake passes as you go down the hill

I seriously love how they aimed the lift hill directly at the observation tower

This helix is a lot of fun and causes extreme laterals

Almost to the top

While not my favorite mountain coaster in the area, it is still a very solid ride

Honestly it was nice to just get back outside and ride a coaster after a long winter
