German for "The Mammoth".
(both the animal and the tree (sequoia) have been an inspiration for the name, because of their impressive size)
• height: 30m / 98.4 ft
• length: 860m / 2821.5 ft
• top speed: 90 kph / 56 mph
• includes a tunnel and trenches
The ride has been designed by the Werner Stengel
bureau and will be built by Cordes GmbH
, the company responsible for the prefabricated track as well as general construction of Colossos, Balder, El Toro and the roller coaster under construction at Everland, Korea. This one (Mammut) will have a typical laminated track though...altough it will have some modern technology applied here and there.
Rolling stock by Gerstlauer
The ride will also have a splinkler system to keep it flexible in the hot summer months.
The sequoia tree (also known as mammoth tree) will be the main theme of the ride, with the train representing a sawmill blade gone loose, the station and surroundings a saw mill.
A new themed area will be built around the ride, with a total area of 2 ha (roughly 5 acres), but all of that won't be completed until 2010.
Total cost of 6 million euro. The roller coaster is opening March 10, 2008
