Kumali


Kumali, installed 2006, is a Vekoma Suspended Looping Coaster (SLC), located in Flamingo Land Resort in North Yorkshire, England. The ride is a custom layout with some new elements for Vekoma SLCs, including the cobra roll, which Flamingo Land wished to be out over a lake.

It is named after the alpha male of the zoo's lion pride. In 2008 Flamingo Land added video recorders to each car so riders can purchase their own video of them on the ride as well as the on-ride photo. The themed Kumali ride music was written and produced by ElectricStreetPolice, a British TV composer by the name of Paul Bickerdike who has credits on TV and in film at Cannes. Kumali is currently only one of three operating Vekoma SLCs in the UK.

The Jubilee Odyssey at Fantasy Island UK in Ingoldmells, Skegness, is the largest, and the other, Infusion at Pleasure Beach, Blackpool, is the smallest.

Layout

Kumali's Layout is a custom model.

The train climbs up a 117ft lift hill and drops to the right 111ft and goes straight into the first inversion, a vertical loop (1 inversion) then slightly banks right then straight again ready for the next two inversions, a cobra roll (2 inversions) then once out the cobra roll it goes straight into a zero g roll (1 inversion) then does a 360-degree helix to the right and hits the brake run before turning right into another brake run and finally turns right into the station ready to unload/load again.

In total it has 4 inversions.
