Cobra is a Vekoma roller coaster currently operating at Walibi Belgium since April 28, 2001. It was closed in January 2011, but reopened in July of that year.



Ride experience

When the coaster starts, the train is pulled backwards up the lift hill, then dropped through the station through a cobra roll and then one vertical loop. At the end of this cycle the train is pulled up the lift hill at the end of the track, then dropped once again allowing the train to go back through the loops backwards. This is the standard Vekoma Boomerang roller coaster design found at many different amusement parks worldwide.

Colour scheme

Light brown track and tan supports. The coaster formerly had yellow track and purple supports.


Single train with 7 cars. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows, for a total of 28 riders per train.
