Turkey-based Polin Waterparks and Pool Systems has launched King Cobra, a new patent pending thrill waterslide.

According to the group, King Cobra offers "one of the most intense riding experiences while proving itself as the number one attraction in terms of visual impact and spectator appeal".

The ride’s unique design configuration features fibreglass theming, colouring and an unusual ride path.

"The core feature of King Cobra is that it enables riders in two 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," explained project manager Eyup Ispiroglu.
