Black Mamba is an inverted roller coaster located in Phantasialand in Brühl, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It was manufactured by Bolliger & Mabillard and opened in 2006. Like many modern Bolliger & Mabillard coasters, the track is filled with sand to absorb rattling and to reduce noise.Citation needed

History

Design

Elements

About two-thirds of the ride is below the ground level and is especially known for its great theming, which is a jungle-like area around the track, filled with real trees, caves and even sounds of animals. The station is themed to represent an African temple-like building.

Trains

2 trains with 8 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 4 across in a single row, for a total of 32 riders per train. Riders are held in by over-the-shoulder harnesses.
