Noah's Ark Waterpark, located in Wisconsin Dells, WI, and advertised as America's largest waterpark, will open a large new waterslide in 2018 named Raja.

The slide is cobra themed, hence the name, and will feature sliders coiling their way down from heights of 65 feet up into a enormous cobra-themed wave wall.  The wave wall comes complete with a menacing cobra head, fangs and all.

“Noah’s Ark has a rich history of bringing some of the world’s most innovative attractions to the Waterpark Capital of the World,” said Mark Whitfield, Noah’s Ark General Manager. “Raja will be no exception to that tradition and we believe that our guests will find it to be one of the most thrilling experiences of their summer.”

The new slide is truly snake themed head to toe.  Raja will be decked out in alternating red and white snakeskin patterns, and feature two separate paths to the bottom.  Passengers will race each other in tubes through two separate helices, before encountering a steep 37 foot drop that leads into the wave wall with a giant cobra head overlooking it.  The path of the slides stretches 335 feet long, making it the largest slide of its kind.

Raja will be featured prominently at Noah's Ark, located along Wisconsin Dells Parkway and adjacent to the Flash Flood ride.

Manufactured by Polin, Raja will only be the second slide of its kind in America.  The first was King Cobra at Six Flags Hurricane Harbor in New Jersey, which stands 56 feet tall, has a 25 foot drop and 256 feet of slide.
