POLIN Waterparks and Pool Systems is proud to announce the launch of its patent pending waterslide, KING COBRA. 

KING COBRA is a gorgeous waterslide that offers one of the most “intense” riding experiences of the industry while proving itself as the number one attraction in terms of visual impact and spectator appeal. It creates a truly different experience both for the riders and for the spectators. With its unique design configuration, fiberglass theming, coloring and its unique riding path, it will surely be the most attractive attraction in the parks.

“The core feature of the patent pending KING COBRA is its unique configuration that enables riders in 2 double tubes racing through a circular path with twists, turns and experiencing the drop of their lives still racing and entering into the valley part together at the same time with a heart pounding influence.” says Eyup Ispiroglu, Project Manager, Polin Waterparks and Pool Systems.

Riding experience of KING COBRA starts with two specially designed double tubes on two slides side by side and KING COBRA enables circular racing throughout the journey with turns, twists and surprises while passing through enclosed and open parts of the ride. Before reaching to the very heart pounding part, riders are in the enclosed part of the ride, fully dark and suddenly and very unexpectedly, they come to the end. They see a whole “blank”. While thinking that this is the end, they drop down with an angle of 50 degrees. They plunge 8 meters (25 feet) down, accelerating to speed of 51 km/h.
“This will surely be the thrill of the riders’ lives. Two double tubes with two riders on each are now in the same slide, dropping down at the same time. The excitement of an unexpected drop & the fear of crashing is just breathtaking. Expertly designed configuration and uniquely planned color formulation create an illusion that makes the riders feel that they will be crashing each other in a second since the two double tubes with 4 riders are now in the same sliding area. This is unique in the industry. 2 double tubes leaving two slides side by side end into the same sliding surface.” says Sohret Pakis Marketing Manager, Polin Waterparks and Pool Systems.

Ugur Degirmenci, Project Engineer of Polin adds: “It does not end. The two double tubes are now heading into the mouth of Cobra. Unique fog, high-pitched hiss, water spraying, visual effects make it more exciting than ever while the spectators below think you are just “swallowed” in the mouth of the Cobra. Then powerful G-forces take over your tube and riders come back down and then oscillate up and down again as the tubes stop on down the waterslide. You come to the end of this unique riding experience and we are sure the first thing you will do as you exit KING COBRA is to get in line for another turn.”
