A few tips: Hang on ! The line can be up to three (3) hours. Ride Mamba several times in the morning when the wait is only 20-30 minutes. The best view is the front. The back provides the most air time. The air time in the back may be a little much for young children so kids should ride the front. Come back to ride at night !
