Mount Mara is a steel enclosed roller coaster located at Bobbejaanland in Lichtaart, Antwerp, Belgium.

History[edit]

The ride opened in May 1989 and was originally called Revolution. In 2008, the name was switched to Evolution, but in 2013 or earlier it was reverted back to the original Revolution.

For 2016, Bobbejaanland announced that the coaster would have virtual reality headsets added to the attraction. A separate queue-line was created for riding with virtual reality, allowing guests to choose between Revolution (without a headset) or the new Mount Mara attraction.

Design[edit]

The roller coaster is enclosed in a darkened building and has a tire-propelled spiral lift hill at its centre.

The station is split in half, with riders in the first half of the train receiving Samsung virtual reality headsets. Riders with a headset experience climbing and descending a volcano on a quad bike. There are various lights and special effects visible to riders without a headset.

Trains[edit]

Single train with 30 cars. In each car, riders are arranged inline in 2 rows for a total of 60 riders per train.
