PKD Shockwave Question

Thursday, April 11, 2002 7:46 PM

Is Shockwave's layout the same as King Cobra's @ PKI?

(obviously not now, since KC is practically gone, but still...)

i dont know, but by looking at the coasters stats on rcdb, king cobra is about 12 feet shorter, but all the other stats are the same, so i would say that the layout is the same, but king cobra has something slightly shorted, maybe the station or brake run.

no joe, they were a little different..ive never been to PKI, so obviously ive never seen KC up close...but from what ive seen in pics, and from what ive heard, following the helix KC makes its final turns in a different direction and not sure to what degree, but thats how they differ....the first half of both coasters though is identical as far as i know....check out rcdb and compare some pics...that might help you as well...:)

KC is/was awesome after the helix! It had that trick-track, the turnaround, then the bunny hills. I only rode Shockwave once....all I remember was that it was very painful. :)
