Black Mamba is a Bolliger & Mabillard inverted roller coaster located in Phantasialand in Brühl, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. Like many modern B&M coasters, the track is filled with sand to absorb rattling and to reduce noise. 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.
