Did you know that Kumba at Busch Gardens Tampa was the first B&M (Bolliger & Mabillard) coaster with interlocking corkscrews?  It’s also one of only three coasters with a vertical loop encircling the lift hill.  How cool is that?  Can you name the other two?

About The Author

Hi! I took up roller coasters late in life, 8 years ago at the age of 59 and am trying to make up for lost time. Most of my favorite coasters were made by Intamin and lately, Rocky Mountain Construction. I love Hersheypark not only because it's the sweetest place on earth but because the three major coasters are Intamins. In real life I work in the legal profession.
