This weekend (October 15th 2010) i visited Flamingoland in Malton, North Yorkshire UK.
I live in Scotland and was visiting my Aunty and Uncle who live in Newcastle and we decided to visit Flamingoland for the day. The Park was not very busy and there were hardly any queues all day! All major rides were open ( Velocity, Kumali, Wild Mouse, Lost River Ride, Mumbo Jumbo and Flip Flop) Corkscrew was closed in the morning but opened aroun 2 pm.
We simply made our way around the park hitting as many rides as we could.
Our only dilema was a technical problem on Mumbo Jumbo (The newish S&S El Loco coaster at the park) We had been queuing for a while and just before we reached the front of the queue the ride op's decided to add a third car to the track. In doing so (manually) they jammed some kind of bolt in the track and had to call the senior dudes to come and review the situation........ 15 minutes on and we were away! it is a great addition to the park and has some....well....interesting features.
So in no particular order here is my Picture Report-
The park entrance logo. Nothing more-Nothing less.
KUMALI from a distance!
Flamingoland has a very bad 4D "ride" which is themed around Spongebob and comes with the very annoying but catchy themetune.
Flip-Flop is the parks Frisbee ride. It is very oddly themed- a swinging disc going through a yellow house atop a lake with a model shark, mines and funnels in it!
The Lost River Ride which comes with a free shower!
Corkscrew. This classic Vekoma comes free with a sore head!
Saving the moment! Me infront of Corkscrew.
The Cliff Hanger! This is a nice ride with a nice view!
After a gentle rain shower i got this shot of the "splosh" area of the park. I think Bullet used to be around this area.
And the star attraction- MUMBO JUMBO (s&s El Loco coaster!
It's a record breaker!
The record breaking first drop!
Side Elevation. This thing is brutal but great!
My best shot and my desktop wallpaper! Feel free to make it yours!
The final stretch and extra car. Geek Shot!
I am front left! just about to be inverted and throttled towards the ground!
Velocity's twistied Vekoma layout!
I had a great day at Flamingoland and hope that you have enjoyed viewing my report, Please comment! thanks.
This coaster wasn't very busy. That however did not surpirise me!
