Cobra - Coney-Land

Wanted to know what everyone's take on this concept is. This ride looks freaken crazy if you ask me!

Amagine taking a spin on that coaster. After the vertical drop, I would assume some serious air time on that second bunny hill right before the loop. What do you think?

Ask not what you can do for a coaster, but what a coaster can do for you.
That looks insane!

Looks like it would be a lot of fun. I liked the other pic too. It reminds me of Six Flags throwing in a coaster wherever they can make it fit.

InsĀ“t it ironic (lalala) that the first major coaster coming to Switzerland will be built in Russia!?

I love, love, love Pax coasters and never tire to praise them, but the hangtime this ride will deliver is not for me. Especially if they are going to use the same old OTSR, which look like left overs from some siberian GULAG.

Is it just me, or does that ride just scream "Boomerang, but replace a cobra with a bunny hill"?

Don't get me wrong, it looks interesting and a little more family-friendly than a boomerang, and I'm sure it's great for small parks, but it doesn't look like anything revolutionary. With that said, we'll probably see a lot more go in just like the boomerangs. :)

^ I think I disagree on every point...LOL!

The *hang-time* probably is rivalled only by the Screamin' Squirrel - not sure if that's a good thing or not until I get to RIDE one.

An airtime hill on a shuttle coaster? Maybe not revolutionary, but certainly a VERY nice change for the better.

Finally, I think PAX will continue to be a small but growing company for the foreseeable future....I really don't think we'll see more than 2-3 rides/year out of them...hopefully I'll be wrong on that last part! ;)

Do you agree that it would be a nice addition for a park that has next to nothing when it comes to rides/attractions?

It is nothing more then a Boom clone, but interesting nevertheless.

Boomerangs have the worst element ever devised by man...please compare this instead to an Anton or Arrow shuttle-looper....

LOL! :)

Well, Pax struck again! Ride is delayed because the park is having "communication problems" with them! It happened to a small park in France and their Wild Mouse arrived... the next year!
Yeah, i heard that too. But I understood that the communication problems are supposedly between the park and the transport company. Alledgedly the ride is ready to be picked up.
