Busch Gardens Africa invites you to come try Kumba, one of the world's best roller coasters! After the blood-curling thrill of an initial 135 foot drop, you will plunge from 110 feet into a diving loop, feel a full 3 seconds of absolute weightlessness while spiraling 360 degrees, and tear through one of the world's largest vertical loops. Kumba is one wild ride that you won't easily forget.
