Well, lesson learned! I almost asked in this thread for seat suggestions, and even as we were walking towards mamba I searched really haphazardly to see if I could find suggestions. Not that I didn't enjoy the ride; it was the only one I made the effort to re ride since both of the woodies were closed. Mamba is the only one of the Morgan hypers I've been on, so I'll be sure to give the front seat a go next time I ride one...surely Mamba.

THIRD ROW FROM THE FRONT

THIRD ROW FROM THE FRONT

If you want ejector/strong floater airtime on EVERY SINGLE HILL, third row is undoubtably the best. Mamba is a top 10 ride in the third row.
Top 10: 1. Steel Vengeance 2. Maverick 3. Monster (Adventureland) 4. Outlaw Run 5. Beast 6. Storm Chaser (Kentucky Kingdom) 7. Incredible Hulk 8. Goliath (Great America) 9. Mystic Timbers 10. Rougarou

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Ejector? No. Strong floater sure. And as one who formerly had Mamba as a top 10 coaster, it disappears from the top ten once you've been on around 50 or so. It's firmly in the middle of any sane person's list.

The last two or three hills we’re definately ejector when I rode it this past weekend. I haven’t ridden tons of coasters, (well over 50, though) but Mamba is definately a favorite of mine.

I honestly did not feel a difference in the airtime between the first 3 rows on Mamba. The only noticeable difference is that you can feel every little pump and kink in the track much more than you'd like in the 3rd row. Ill personally wait for the front row if given the chance because of that. Also i don't have to worry about getting spat on during the ride if i ride in the front. :lmao: For some reason i always get spit on right in the face when i ride mamba. It seems KC folk don't know how to shut their slobbery mouths during the ride :p . But jokes aside i always get spit on when i ride Mamba, its ridiculous. That or the constant mist of sweat from the riders in front of you during the summer really make my germaphobic self a little uneasy :lol:

Is it true that a new coaster for WoF 2019 has been loosely confirmed. If so I'm so happy. I would take anything at this point

I know quite a lot about Donkeys!

Since I don't know what "loosely confirmed" means and it's a complete oxymoron, then sure. It's true.
