Kumali Suspended Looping Coaster
Kumali is currently only one of three operating Vekoma Suspended Looping Coasters (SLC) in the UK. The other two are The Odyssey at Fantasy Island near Skegness, which is the largest and Infusion at Blackpool Pleasure Beach.
The Suspended design of this ride means that the roller coaster train travels beneath the track, but unlike an inverted coaster, the train is fixed to a swinging arm that pivots from side to side. This gives riders the impression that there is nothing below them and makes for a more thrilling ride, especially on the front seat.
