BomBora is a steel family roller coaster located at Lagoon.

Ride details

BomBora sits next to Lagoon-A-Beach, and comes complete with a beach/surfer theme to match the location. Additionally, the trains come complete with detailed theming, lighting, and an onboard audio system that randomly plays one of six beach-themed songs while a train runs its course. When both trains are in use, the coaster has an hourly capacity of 950 riders per hour.

Lagoon designed BomBora to be a family coaster, and BomBora joins Lagoon’s increasing family-ride lineup making it possible for families of all types to enjoy many of Lagoon’s rides together. BomBora sits at a height of 50 feet and reaches a top speed of 31 miles per hour. The size and speed of the coaster make it possible for the smaller kids to enjoy it without the thrill of the ride being too much for them to handle. BomBora does provides a few quick drops and turns that offer enough thrill to entertain those who may prefer a more exciting roller coaster making it a perfect coaster for families to enjoy together. In fact, many first-time riders express surprise at the thrill and fun that BomBora provides despite the look of the coaster.

The word Bombora is actually an Australian term. According to Wikipedia, “Bombora is an indigenous Australian term for an area of large sea waves breaking over a shallow area such as a submerged rock shelf, reef or sand bank that is located some distance from the shoreline and beach surf break”. The term is a fitting name for the theme and location of the new roller coaster. The blue track and cream supports also fit the coloring of some of the slides in Lagoon-A-Beach. Lagoon created this new coaster to fit in well with the beach and provide a new look to the water park’s skyline.

Audio Tracks

The ride's trains feature on-board audio that plays one of six surf tracks at random during the ride. The tracks are:

  • The Beach Boys - Surfin Safari
  • The Beach Boys - Surfin USA
  • The Beach boys - Catch A Wave
