I drive by it everyday to work... looks very cool!

I haven't been to WoF for a very long time.. since before the Mamba(sp?) was built... looks like I'm going to have to wade thru some ankle biters and check it out

I've had that baby as the background on my PC for a month, I'm very fired up for it. Hopefully there's no "complications" with it.

It still sucks that the Orient Express is gone....but this will make a nice replacement.

I don't think the inverted coasters are as much fun. They ride too smooth and you are too secure. I like the thrill of wondering if I will fly out of my seat and the jerkyness of the Orient, Timberwolf, Mamba. Compare batman to mr. freeze in st. louis.

Anyone have a Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 version of it? I want to ride it virtually.

I dont like inverted coasters. Only front seat can see where its going and the torque is a little too much. I consider myself a coaster fan. Not real big on being underneath the rails

seems like new rollercoasters are getting shorter and shorter every year. make the ride faster and make the ride time longer at the same time.

The Mamba is the very first roller coaster I ever rode, I was scared to death of them but then all my friends were gonna ride it and I slowly walked behind them into line and BAM! I loved it! I think I rode it 4 or 5 times that day

They should have kept the Zambezee Zinger, Orient Express, and get rid of that Boomarang coaster that gives everyone headaches and the new coaster that spins around on the track while going at a rapid speed of 5mph. I was so pissed when i waited in line for damn near an hour so my gf could ride this piece of shit they call a roller coaster.



you really wanna go to a theme park go to Cedar Point in sandusky ohio (yes i know, callahan auto from Tommy Boy) The theme park has 20 rollercoasters including a 300ft tall 100mph coaster. This theme park is owned by the same company that owns WOF.


The best rollercoaster in America IMO is the Incredible Hulk coaster at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure in Orlando FL.

This new coaster looks awesome! But they should have kept the Orient Express and the Zinger. To hell with it, bring back the Schussboomer while your at it!! Bring them back and get rid of that damn spinning dragons ride!

Sweet.

I was at WoF this summer and rode the Mamba for the first time.....pretty good coaster.

I'm not sure WTF they were thinking when they built that spinning piece of crap.

For my money though, the Ripcord was hands down the best ride there.

It was my understanding the OE was becoming a maintenance problem, it was 25 yrs old when they took it out. I didn't even waste my time riding the Spinning Dragons the last time I was there, it looked pretty lame to me. As far as Cedar Point goes, yeah that's the best place to go to ride coasters, but it's just not that easy to jump in the car and go to Sandusky, Ohio.
