After a couple seasons of standing but not operating, La Ronde is finally dismantling their Intamin stand-up coaster "Le Cobra". This was only one of 3 stand-up models ever manufactured by Intamin, with Shockwave at Drayton Manor the only one remaining in operation. The other formerly operated as Batman: The Escape at Astroworld, before being stored at Darien Lake for many years, and finally being recycled earlier this year.
Judging by the picture above, Le Cobra is also likely going to the scrapyard, as there wouldn't be much interest to rebuild it. Intamin's stand-up model never gained traction as they were noted to be on the rougher side, and B&M created a similar, but improved model soon after these rides debuted. Many riders complained of the awkward restraints and unappealing track layout that these coasters offered.
Cobra was not the first ride to be removed by La Ronde this year, as La Pitoune (Log Flume) was also forced to close after a safety issue correlated to age. This will bump La Ronde down to 9 roller coasters, and some are speculating what's next for the Six Flags owned park.
Cobra's footprint took up a lot of room near the front of the park, making it a perfect place for a new roller coaster. La Ronde's last investment on a brand new roller coaster was Goliath in 2006. I would say that this park is long overdue for a new headliner attraction.
Unfortunately, Six Flags has not been too kind investing in this park in recent years, focusing more on flat ride investments than larger scale ones. Something like an S&S Free Spin seems like a safe guess if that's the route in which Six Flags wants to go with this new space.
