Mumbo Jumbo the UK’s newest record breaking roller coaster opened in Flamingo Land for the 2009 season.
The ride manufactured by S&S boasts the world steepest first drop at a angle of 112 degrees. The ride cost varies depending on who you speak to but the average price tag seems to be around 4 million pounds.
When the questioned about the strange name of the ride its a reference to other parks falsely boasting about their latest attractions been the worlds first etc… hmm wonder who they mean :).
The photographs were taken at various times of the day as you may notice from the dull skies.
We visited Flamingo Land as part of an organised tour with Club Pleasure Beach and had an exclusive ride session as well as a look behind the scenes and a chat with the staff and ride operators.
Here’s the pictures from that tour.
