Six Flags Discovery Kingdom's seriously twisted steelsupercoaster, Zonga, features four brightly colored full-circle, full-tilt, fully-inverted loops in wild yellow, glowing green, too hot red and passionate purple. This super screamer features a 70-degree first drop into back-to-back full circle loops, twists, and tight turns banked up to 80-degrees that hurtle you through two more inversions.
Zonga operated for two seasons at Six Flags Marine World. The roller coaster was finally removed from the park in 2006 after standing-but-not-operating for two years.
