Zoom Down a Mountain on One of the Fastest Coasters in Missouri
If you consider yourself a thrill-seeker, there's a coaster in Missouri that you should know about that will hurtle you down a mountain at speeds faster than just about any other coaster of its type in America.
The Copperhead Mountain Coaster in Branson was recently featured in an article by Only In Your State. If you check out the official website, you'll see the adjectives "fastest", "scenic" and "longest" and they're not wrong. This mountain coaster reaches breakneck speeds of 25 mph, but features what they describe as "an advanced braking system" to make sure you're safe.
Copperhead Mountain Coaster describes some of its corners as "Lethal Drop", "The Big Strike", "Venomous Twists" plus "Slither and Slide" to keep that Copperhead theme alive and well.
Loops, drops and curves are featured all along the ride path with beautiful views of the Ozarks all around you.
No, it won't rival the speed of Six Flags rides like the Screaming Eagle, but for a mountain coaster, there aren't many in America that go as fast as this one in Branson, Missouri. It would be something to toss on that "to do list in 2023" if you haven't already.
