In Robb Alvey's Coaster Season in the intro it shows "Cobra Adventure Park" and they are riding something that looks like a jet ski on a track. There looked like there were two tracks next to each other. Anyone know ride it is or where the park is?

The "jet ski on a track" could have been one of those alpine bobsled things which might be better described as a cart that rides in a little trough. I have yet to see the video so I can't say for sure.

S&S now makes things called Snow Shots. They look like snowmobiles and they drag race down a track with you controling the throtle. They look pretty cool although I have yet to experience one first hand.

Could someone tell me the parks that have them. I didn't see them on S-S's slow loading site.

Right now, ive only heard of them at Cobra. They are mad fun, esp. since they are right beside the road, so you drag the cars on the road. They get insanely fast, and im not sure id really trust it if I didnt know Stan's fairly good safety record...

The snow shots were not working for majority of the year. My father-in-law has a condo down there, and we go frequently for long weekends, and always have to stop by Cobra to ride the go-carts. The snow shot was having problems overheating. It was definitely a testing ground for S&S because of the humidity, ocean air and serious heat it can be exposed to. The ride isn't as long as I thought it would have been, but it still looked sweet! Cobra is also where the HW double shot is coming from I thought!
