King Cobra

Where: Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, Jackson, NJ

The king cobra is the world’s longest venomous snake, so it makes sense that this eponymous ride, which opens in mid-July 2012, promises to be one of the craziest theme-park attractions. Resembling a massive cobra, the ride makes an intimidating first impression with its oversize black, yellow, and bold orange scales and allows two tubes to zip up to 32 mph.

Crazy Fact: The ride’s finale features a sudden 25-foot drop at a 50-degree angle that creates the illusion of riders being swallowed by the King’s massive mouth.
