Mamba is classified as a "hypercoaster", meaning a roller coaster that incorporates large drops, high-speeds, lots of air-time, but no inversions. The tallest coaster at Worlds of Fun, this roller coaster's "out and back" layout starts with a 205-foot drop, followed by a drop of 184-feet and includes a giant spiral, steep dips, and speeds of up to 75 miles-per-hour. It's no surprise that Mamba has been rated as one of the world's best steel roller coaster experiences.
