King Cobra, Six Flags Hurricane Harbor

Feeling brave? King Cobra is an intense trip through (you guessed it) a massive snake. Make your way through the twists and turns of the cobra’s tail, and then you’ll be shot out to zoom back and forth on the snake’s head. But don't worry—there's no venom in this reptile.
