Mammoth

Enthusiast coaster & amusement park chatter about whatever. If it's not about coasters & parks, it'll go to the garbage file. Keep it on-topic and flame-retardant, please.

Been a while since I been on here (life....), but just seen Holiday World post that they will be using two different boats on it this year. That is neat.

What the 6 person boats and smaller boats?

Having two sizes would work better capacity wise as not everyone is in a big group.

Have Fun & welcome back.

I want to ride this with friends or at least people I like. The thought of getting scratched by some strangers long sharp toe nails really freaks me out :mrgreen:

From what I read on it. There will be a six person round raft and an eight person raft that is posted on Holiday World's facebook page.

I like those 8 person rafts. I'd rather face forward for the ride than playing footsie with everyone else in the round boats.

Have Fun

I rode the slide last Saturday morning during the Holiwood Nights event. Mammoth is a great slide. Yes, you play footsie with other passengers while boarding (I was by myself, so you can imagine...), but it really doesn't matter once you get going. It get's you more soaked than Wildebeest and is a little more adventurous due to the spinning. I'll have to go back later this summer and ride it again!
