The Cobra at Sunset

Ratanga Junction: More than 30 attractions including 24 rides ranging from kiddie rides to family rides and thrill rides for the more intrepid adventurers. One of the most challenging of the rides is The Cobra, a suspended looping coaster which catapults riders from a height of 34m along 910m of track at up to four times the force of gravity and speeds of close to 100km per hour. Adding to the thrill of the ride is the suspension of riders beneath the track, feet flying free. This ride is not for the faint-hearted (like me) … but I can take pictures of it 🙂
