Carolina Cobra

Rule

Carowinds

Go upside down six times in just under two minutes on the Carolina Cobra roller coaster. The track on this "Boomerang" roller coaster does not form a complete circuit, so therefore the train shuttles both forwards and backward during the ride. Between the two 116-foot lift hills is 875-feet of track that is twisted into three inverting elements - a "boomerang" or cobra roll double inversion and a "vertical loop".
