KOBRA at Chessington World of AdventuresLast updated by Nick on Friday, March 29, 2013 12:35

Installed in Chessington’s new Wild Asia area in 2010, KOBRA was the second Zamperla Mega Disk’O Coaster to open in the UK (the first having been EDGE at Paultons Park). The ride visually dominates the Wild Asia area, with two enormous cobra statues standing at either end of its circuit.
It sees riders seated in an outwards-facing position on a circular platform. This spins as its traverses a short roller coaster-style track, which features a “camelback” hill to create a floating sensation. Guests sit on motorbike-style seats, with restraints locking onto their backs. This can cause a sharp bump!Review:
KOBRA has proven to be a popular addition to Chessington’s line-up, and deservedly so. While its painfully-long loading times can lead to lengthy queues, the dizzying combination of spinning and sliding along the circuit is a real thrill.
Those who suffer from motion sickness, along with younger children, may want to avoid KOBRA. While it may appear relatively tame, it is a surprisingly intense ride experience.Top Tip:
Although it can carry up to 40 guests at a time, loading riders onto KOBRA can take a very long time due to its unusual restraints. If you’re visiting Chessington on a busy day, try and ride early (after Vampire and Dragon’s Fury) to avoid the worst of the queues.
