Flying Cobras is a Vekoma Boomerang roller coaster located at Carowinds in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA. It was the first addition to the park since it was purchased by Cedar Fair. The ride was previously located at the now defunct Geauga Lake from 1996 to 2007.

For 2017, the name of the roller coaster was changed from Carolina Cobra to Flying Cobras and the ride was repainted.
