Yea, Schwarzkoph (The King of Coasters) built them both, like you said.

I think White Lightnin and King Kobra were prototype, all of them were built the same year.

Yea, King Kobra and White Lightnin were built in '77 if thats what you mean, but most of the Schw. Shuttle Loops were built between 1978 and 1981, except for the ones at Great America CA., Kings Dominion, and Carowinds.

By Cephas

90mph and 300ft.

Why does Carowinds need a big coaster, it would only take up space. Intamin coasters are over-rated.
