Planet Coaster Classic Rides Collection and a free new coaster arrive 16 April

Frontier Developments plc (AIM: FDEV) today announced that a new, free roller coaster and premium Classic Rides Collection for Planet Coaster will arrive on 16 April.

Copperhead Strike, a newly launched coaster at Carowinds park in North Carolina, USA, will be free for all Planet Coaster players to feature in their parks from 16 April. Faithfully recreated from the original ride blueprints, this twisting and looping coaster train is beautifully themed like an original American hot-rod. Copperhead Strike packs a real punch with its double launching track layout which boasts an inverted top hat, two 360 loops, a corkscrew, and a unique jojo roll straight out the station. It’s as close as you can get to riding the real thing.

A full overview of Copperhead Strike can be seen in the Copperhead Strike trailer here:
