Shambhala, a Bolliger & Mabillard Mega Coaster, debuted in May 2012. Themed to a Tibetan kingdom, the coaster will be Europe's tallest, with a 255-foot drop. The coaster will feature multiple airtime hills and a top speed of more than 82 miles per hour, but as is the case on B&M's Mega coasters, it won't go upside-down.


One of the best rides in the world. This is the perfect B&M Hyper with nice floaty airtime and comfy seats. There is nothing wrong with this coaster. 10/10
Best ride in the park, no doubt about it. Unlike Intimidator at Carowinds, Shambhala is more like a mini-Fury 325 to me: there are some significant airtime moments here and there, and the ride experience at the back of the train is pure madness.
AMAZING, face morphingly fast and smooth
The best ride in the park without a doubt. Smooth, fun, and filled with floater air-time.
