Cobra is finally coming down at La Ronde


La Ronde's Cobra Coaster is Officially Being Dismantled.

After years of sitting on its nice plot (of now inevitable weeds) over green grass, the head-ache inducing Cobra is being removed from La Ronde, leaving a nice plot of land open next to one of the many other empty buildings at La Ronde.

What's next for La Ronde on the coaster front, a relocation? A new custom coaster? Or possibly a dark ride? Who knows, but after 5+ years of the coaster rarely being seen open, and finally being removed from the park's website in late 2016, many coaster fans have been speculating. The coaster was one of only two Intamin Stand-Up coasters left operating in the World.

La Pitoune, the parks Log Flume, has also been almost completely removed according to the same source. The park opens on May 19th for the season.

The ride is unlikely moving to a new home by looking at the pictures. Picture from instagram: amusement_industry_review
