The record-breaking drop

Mumbo Jumbo is a steel roller coaster located at Flamingo Land in Malton, North Yorkshire, England, UK. It is an El Loco installation from S&S-Sansei Technologies and was opened on 4 July 2009[1] on the spot previously occupied by Tidal Wave. The ride's track and supports were designed by Ride Centerline.[2] The total cost of the ride was £4 million.

Upon opening, the ride was the steepest roller coaster with a maximum drop angle of 112°. It was superseded on 2 July 2011 by Timber Drop at Fraispertuis City in France, which was one degree steeper.



This ride's track looks a little like a Wild Mouse, with single-car trains and tight turns.

Color scheme

Mumbo Jumbo has black track and orange supports.


Single car. Riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows, for a total of 4 riders per car.


According to park owner Gordon Gibb the name "is meant to be a tongue-in-cheek description, poking fun at the way other theme parks exaggerate their new rides and attractions. We’re not talking mumbo jumbo - our new rollercoaster is definitely the real deal!".[3]


On 3 May 2011, a car got stuck upside-down in the dive loop element. Two riders were trapped for 20 minutes before being rescued.[4]
