This ride is so FUN!! I really wish BGW waited a year or two for a B&M coaster, if they did, it would still be there. :) I love all the elements and the loop around the chain lift. The only thing I don't like is the roaring sound. I know it goes along with the theme, but while waiting for the train at the station next to Kumba, you start to lose your hearing. :p

RE: Kumba

That's basically every non-sand filled B&M summed up right there. The roar is to B&M like what Apple Pie and Baseball is to the US.

RE: Kumba

^ I may be wrong, but I believe that the roar feature is an intentional thing attached to the car. Again, I may be wrong,so if someone could verify, that would be great! :)

RE: Kumba

Well, considering "Kumba" actually translates to "Roar," that makes sense! :p Source

I recently visited Dorney Park, with all of their sand-filled B&M's, and I must say, the lack of that trademark "roaring" sound really takes away from some of that powerful "wow" feeling B&M's are known for.
