POLIN is proud to announce its King Cobra waterslide to make its debut at Six Flags Hurricane Harbor water park, Jackson, NJ in Summer 2012.

King Cobra offers not only an intense and heart-pounding experience to its riders, but also a stunning design and a one-of-a-kind visual for spectators. The core feature of King Cobra is its unique configuration that enables two riders to race through a circular path with twists, turns and surprises before experiencing the drop of their lives in the valley of the cobra. This epic plunge is 8 meters down and allows the rider to accelerate to a speed of 51 km/h. Kubilay Alpdogan, Sales Manager, Polin says: “At Six Flags, together with special effects like fog, sound, and lighting, King Cobra features a custom-designed, themed tower. With so many special features, we expect the ride to be more successful than even anticipated."

“We are thrilled to work with Polin on this landmark project, and are confident that King Cobra’s intense ride experience and unparalleled design will make it one of our most popular and entertaining water attractions,” said Six Flags Great Adventure Park President John Fitzgerald.

Six Flags Great Adventure is the first in U.S. to have King Cobra Water Slide!

“We are very excited about King Cobra’s first U.S. installation. Since its launch, King Cobra has been greatly anticipated in the U.S. The question was who would be the first to have this unique ride in the U.S. We are so glad and proud that it is Six Flags Great Adventure,” says Sohret Pakis, Marketing Manager, Polin.

Six Flags Great Adventure, Wild Safari and Hurricane Harbor is one of America’s largest regional theme parks. Hurricane Harbor water park, located on 45 acres, features more than 20 high-speed thrill slides, a family water playground, a million-gallon wave pool and a half-mile-long lazy river. King Cobra is scheduled to open this summer at Six Flags Hurricane Harbor.

The King Cobra first came to life in Europe, Turkey and Russia, respectively. In 2012, King Cobra will be installed in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and U.S.A. With five other contracts now finalized, Polin will announce those at a later date.
