Totally agree its really good to see the track being assembled.

I read earlier that the ride was meant to be themed, i heard something about them building a big entrance, Does anyone know if there will be any more themeing?

Update from 15th May

More facts about Mumbo Jumbo

Supports - Made In China
Track - Made In Italy
(Cheaper than having it made in the UK would you believe?)
The ride will have 5 cars as oppose to Hawgs 4 and are on a boat on there way.

Scientists have warned the dangers of a ride going above 3.5G and so we wont see them anymore? Yeah okay Nick :^o :roll:

Its going up fast isn't it? Rollercoasters seem to get built much quicker as each season goes on. They throw them up these days.

Mumbo Jumbo looks fantastic, I think its got the potential to be better than SAW as the best coaster in the UK for 2009.

Looks great, looks a lot bigger than I expected compared to the photos of Steel Hawg, suppose its just because its in a park I know and its easier to compare it against the other rides. The black track looks class, really loving that with the tango supports!

The ride entrance is going to be a big rock style entrance like Kumali's

Yes according to what was said in that video they will. The queue line will go under the cable cars. This is a very different location to the entrance of Tidal Wave which was there before

The only thing I hate about these S&S coasters is the support structures! It's just so damned ugly!

If Flamingo Land can make it look okayish, it could be quite a good ride.

It does look very ugly - the supports seem so, so dominant! Makes you appreciate other coaster types.

Still, looks exciting.

I actually like how it is looking, I especially like the supporting; all twisty and random.
The entrance looks very good and actually fairly well themed, I think this could be better than we could expect in terms of the theming. It is like a very twisted and modern wild mouse. :P

I really have to get to Flamingo Land asap. It's been years. Totally different roster of rides when I last went, and it was totally dead. Magnum Force, The Bullet and *sigh* Thunder Mountain (everyone's favourite Pinfari Z40). Between Kumali, Velocity and Mumbo Jumbo on its way, I think it's due another visit.
[size=90]For some things there is no rational explanation. There is no way out. There is no happy ending to this story. Welcome to the unknown. Welcome to eternal darkness.

Well have found some pictures of the ride on RCDB.
It looks as if the track is almost complete. Also the station looks like it is coming up nicely as well. :)

I actually think the supports are really cool and wacky. :D
Getting even more excited about this ride as it goes up.

Now that looks like one crazy, mangled, twisted load of steel! I take it they are well on schedule. It's looking good!

I think the seemingly random supports work quite well for a ride called 'Mumbo Jumbo'.
They could probably also work with a mine theme, if painted with a woodgrain effect.

There are some new photo's of the ride over on Ride Guide:

[url=http://forum.ride-guide.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=68&t=849&start=345" target="_blank]http://forum.ride-guide.co.uk/viewtopic ... &start=345[/url]

There are now Cars on the track but no testing as of yet. The station roof is now thatched as well, but on the ride guide forums they seem to have a big problem with this and want to burn the thatch down because flamingoland have done it too much?

Personally I do not see the problem, that area of the park is themed to Africa and they are trying to recreate that style of building, so surely it is part of the area theme whats the problem?

Mumbo Jumbo has taken its first test run and looks pretty good!

Here is the video footage:
