Planet Coaster Classic Rides Collection and new free coaster launched today

Frontier Developments plc (AIM: FDEV) today announced that a new, free roller coaster and premium Classic Rides Collection for Planet Coaster is available today.

Copperhead Strike, the latest coaster to be launched at Carowinds park, in North Carolina, USA, is today free to play for all Planet Coaster players alongside the launch of the premium Classic Rides Collection. 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.

The first DLC pack for Planet Coaster in 2019, the Classic Rides Collection is out now on Steam. Link: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1061350/Planet_Coaster__Classic_Rides_Collection

The Classic Rides Collection launch trailer, below, features all nine rides (and one variant) and perfectly captures the friendly, fun atmosphere of Planet Coaster!
