Hey, I was just curious. Which Cobra Roll, made by any company, was the first one ever built?

Bye

Dude, I just wanted to know. Do you have a problem about me not knowing something? If you do, go solve it up yourself. BTW, I have heard of Drachen Fire at BGW.

Actually, it was one of those Vekoma boomerangs. I believe the first one was like 1985 or 1986, I forget, but definitely before Drachen Fire.

to be tecnical, the First Cobra roll, since all the others are called Boomarangs, was on Kumba. Dracien Fires fact sheet says boomarang, not cobra roll.

This should stop the pointless arguement:

First Arrow Batwing: Drachen Fire at Busch Gardens Williamsburg (Williamsburg, Virginia) 1992
First B&M Cobra Roll: Kumba at Busch Gardens Tampa (Tampa Bay, Florida) 1993
First Intamin Cobra Roll: Monte Makaya at Terra Encantada (Rio De Janeiro, Brazil) 1998
First Premier Cobra Roll: Outer Limits: Flight of Fear at Paramount King's Dominion (Doswell Virginia) & Paramount King's Island (King's Mill, Ohio) 1996
First Vekoma Boomerang: Escorpion at Reino Aventura (Mexico City, Mexico) 1981

As much as I love seeing new elements, I have a feeling I wouldn't get the thrill out of a Sea Serpant as I do a Cobra Roll. The change in direction halfway through is what makes them so much fun.

Vertigo, Rock' n Roller coaster in orlando does not have a sea serpent inversion, it is just a regular cobra roll or as Vekoma calls it boomerang. There is a version of RNRC with a sea serpent manuever in I believe SF holland. Just wanted to clarify that fact.

also, Vekoma SLC have the heart beater inversion(thats Vekoma's name for the unique inversion), it is very different from the sea serpent manever. The heart-Beater is similar to a elongated vertical loop with a twist at the top, very different from a cobra roll or sea serpent.

The first inversion on RnRc at Orlando is a Sea Serpent. I'm 100% sure of that. The SFH version has one too. Not being rude BTW.

Have you even been on it? I went on it 6 times a week ago. I'm sure of what I'm saying. And besides, a coaster gets built after the building not before. You can't have a pic of it not enclosed because it has never been disclosed.
