Mumbo Jumbo is an S&S Worldwide sit-down roller coaster located at Flamingo Land in Yorkshire, England.[1] It is an S&S El Loco and was opened in 2009 on the spot previously occupied by Tidal Wave. The total cost of the ride was £4 million ($5,248,800 USD).

Design[edit]

Elements

This ride's track looks a little like a Wild Mouse, with single-car trains and tight turns. This coaster was the world's steepest roller coaster in the world, however it lost this status in 2011.

World Record[edit]

The ride broke the world record for the steepest drop in a roller coaster with a drop of 112°. This was however beaten on the 1st July 2011.

Name[edit]

The park owners said the name "Mumbo Jumbo" is a tongue-in-cheek description of how other parks boast about their new roller coasters.

Accident[edit]

On the 3rd May 2011, a car got stuck upside-down in the Twist into Half Loop element. Two female passengers were trapped for 20 minutes before being rescued.[2]
