Meaning "Roar" in the African Kongo language, Kumba set the industry standard when it opened on April 20, 1993 at Busch Gardens Africa. Built by Bolliger & Mabillard, Kumba is one of B&M's 5 "Sitting Coasters." Located in the park's Congo section, the coaster sends riders through 7 inversions, at speeds up to 60 mph pulling a maximum of 3.8 g's, all while living up to the ride's namesake, producing the distinctive roar B&M's are known for.
