If you've been on Mamba, what did you think of it? Did you like it? I absoloutly loved it. It was an amazing, air filled ride. What a great rush. Most definently my # 1 ride
If you have only heard of it. What are you doing reading this, go out and ride it now? You won't be dissapointed.

Shockwave you Nazi
(the first drop was awesome) other than that uhhhhh good riddance
Everyone has probably heard of Mamba even thouh it doesn't get talked about much.
For me, it's one of my favorite Morgans. (I prefer SD2K over it because of the view, improved trains, height, etc.)

I thought the coaster was great till the midcourse, Then the rest of the return run just sucked.
No coaster at WOF was exceptionally good, However the park overall was nice and I did like Timberwolf alot.

Well, with Mamba being my very first hypercoaster when I rode it back in 1998 (WoF is my hometown park), it was an awesome ride. Great drops, a fun helix, and nice bunny hills. However, for me, after nearly 400 rollercoasters later, it's simple design/layout is all too common so it suffers to those other hypers with more elements in them. I prefer it more than Magnum, though, with them both having nearly identical layouts. I have not ridden Steel Force yet (which is like a prototype to Mamba) so I can not compare. I also have not ridden Mamba this year (I'm still stuck in Europe) so it might have suffered or improved than before, although I have read quite a bit of WoF trip reports that give good marks to the park. Glad you liked it rollerfreak9. . .
381 rollercoasters and counting. . . counting down for me to come back home to America. :)
Mamba can give its good rides and its bad rides. Last Saturday is was running great with 3 trains. There was hardly any stacking and I'm talking about 3 trains here, having hardly any stacking with them is amasing. The ride was running fast and giving lots and lots of Air Time. With 3 trains runign on this ride the line never stops and Sat night had a long wait at 10:30 PM with all 3 ques full but at 11:30 PM that line was completly gone. I thought the crew done a great job on Saturday that I had to personally congratulated them on a great job that they. In fact they told me that they had record attedence on the ride that day.
Even though we don't have as many coasters as CP or VF, This park has some great rides and friendly staff. I always ejnoy my visit no matter how crowded they're. I'm glad that I have some good home parks.

I've been on it, it is definately a re-ride coaster. I tried it front seat and back, surprisingly I got more air in the front seat than in the back. The seats could use more padding, I go so much air that when I landed it hurt! :-)
Yes I'm 15, no I'm not childish, I'm not being sarcastic, well maybe I do have somewhat of an ego...

I've also heard that the main reason I wasn't overly impressed with Steel Force is that we got a back-of-the-train ride.....are the Morgans in general better at/near the front of the train....
bill, yet to get on another Morgan hyper, not content with my small sample....and although the West Coaster was fun, it was NOT what I'd call "thrilling", lol.....
As for Mamba, I saw it once when I was in KC for a convention. My first thought was "Ooh! That looks just like Magnum!"
