I can't think of any water attraction thats an upcharge except for the crazy aqua fighter thing Wet n' Wild had but got rid of. Even flow riders are free at most parks, including the SF parks that have them.

Six Flags Great Adventure Announces Massive, Cobra-Themed Water Slide for 2012

Eye-popping, racing slide marks first of its kind in U.S.

 

Jackson, NJ — February 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Six Flags Great Adventure, America’s largest regional theme park, today announced the addition of King Cobra, an intense and visually-stunning, racing tube slide, opening at Six Flags Hurricane Harbor in Summer 2012.

 

King Cobra promises one of the most extreme riding experiences in the industry while also delivering great spectator appeal. Complete with bold orange, black and yellow scales to resemble a massive cobra on both the interior and exterior, this slide tower will be the first of its kind anywhere in the United States. King Cobra’s unique configuration enables two tubes to race through a circular path with twists, turns and surprises through enclosed and open sections of the slide at speeds up to 32 miles per hour. The ride’s finale features a sudden, 25-foot plunge at a 50-degree angle with riders racing until the heart-pounding finish as they appear to be swallowed by the massive mouth of the cobra.

 

King Cobra is manufactured by Polin, a world leader in the aquatic industry with its innovative design, manufacturing and installation of water parks in 80 countries around the globe. King Cobra marks Polin’s first major U.S. installation in the company’s 35-year history.

 

“We are thrilled to work with Polin on this landmark project, and are confident that King Cobra’s intense ride experience and unparalleled design will make it our most popular and entertaining attraction,” said Park President John Fitzgerald.

 

King Cobra is scheduled to open this summer in lieu of the Dive Bomber drop capsule. For more information, visit www.sixflags.com/greatadventure.

This is certainly better than the drop boxes would have been! I just see the drop boxes as a gimmick that limits capacity and adds liability and maintenance costs. This will be a good centerpiece for HH.

^Agreed, the drop boxes seemed to be a quick and easy solution for a "new" attraction for the park. I'm really happy to see that they are adding a big new attraction to the park. This is the first time since 2001 that both the theme park and water park are receiving new attractions (unless I'm mistaken)
