Billed as the largest King Cobra waterslide on Earth, Noah's Ark Waterpark has officially opened their new attraction, Raja.  Created by Polin Waterparks, the King Cobra style slide is only the second in the United States, with the other being at Six Flags Hurricane Harbor at Six Flags Great Adventure.

Raja stands an impressive six stories tall and features two separate parallel paths that twist through turns right after leaving the boarding area.  The slides cover 335 feet long and riders can hit a maximum speed of 32 miles per hour while on Raja.

The end of the slide is the most exciting, when riders, each seated in tubes, head down a very steep 37 foot drop.  They then slide up directly under the menacing head of a giant cobra, water spraying from its fangs.  They then oscillate back and forth in the u-shaped trough, before coming to a stop and exciting the slide.

Raja has been built right along Wisconsin Dells Parkway, giving those passing the park an enticing view.  The park also shared this video chronicling the building of Raja, along with on new on-slide footage.
