Ehh. I would say it beats Kraken, but it can't beat Mako in its own park. Even against Nitro, airtime wise, Mako eats Nitro and shits all over it, but as for the overall ride experience, I can;t decide whether or not to say the same.

Im honestly really excited to ride all three. Believe it or not i only been on one B&M Hyper and that was Raging Bull. So Im looking forward to riding a more modern up to date version of a B&M hyper. Kraken looks cool too because it has both the real drop and inversions. While Kumba had awesome inversions it did lack the drop(it was only curved oppose to straight down)...but it seems Kraken has both. Manta looks awesome too because I only been on one flying coaster. Thats also at Great America. So im hyped to get to go on my second flying coaster and Im sure its better then Superman too.
:airtime: =) :airtimer: yay rollercoasters!!! :b

I agree, but I was at the park a few days back, and it wasn't very good. It's still the best floorless coaster IMO, but the B&M rattle was bad, and the whole ride was really... tame. :(

I've never ridden a flyer before and don't really know what to expect from Manta. That seating arrangement looks very awkward to me. Not sure if I'm going to love it or hate it.
Mako, on the other hand, looks like a slam dunk.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

I prefer Mako to Manta but I'm more of a fan of hyper coasters than inverting coasters in general. Manta is still a fantastic coaster though and my favorite flyer (haven't ridden Tatsu yet) but I was really, really impressed with Mako's first half.

To give some perspective...
Out of 10 (5 being average), if Mako is an 8, Manta's a 7 and Kraken's a 5.5.

I wish, but I was with family on super limited time and didn't get anywhere near enough photos. Time constraints being in school (Engineering @ Purdue) as well. Bummer to miss out on my rambling blocks of text, I know :lol: :lol:

I have to agree to that as well. Inverting coasters are a lot of fun but I think hyper coasters are far more fun. Hypers and Gigas(only though i only been on one) are my favorite type of coaster. So while I do enjoy inversions a lot,I think steep tall drops and intense air time is a lot more fun!
