Today's Kings Island Photo of the Day is the King Cobra roller coaster which operated from 1984 to 2001 in the Adventure Village / Action Zone section of the park. 

King Cobra was the world's first full-length stand-up roller coaster, standing 95 feet at its highest point with a first drop of 90 feet.  Riders snaked their way through a looping, spine-tingling adventure over 2,219 feet of track at speeds up to 55 miles per hour. 

King Cobra's manufacturer, TOGO, went out of business in 2001, making replacement parts for the ride much more difficult to obtain.  As a result, the decision was made to dismantle the ride prior to the start of the 2002 season to make way for a new attraction, Delirium.
