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!
