For me this ride is a total dark horse. I will forget about it for some time, then when I see how construction is coming along, I get excited. This ride is small and compact, but boy I bet it really packs a punch :)

I love the look of those twisties! This ride is going to be amazing, as most of Seaworld's coasters are. I wonder if this will be even better-received than Manta in Florida. I suppose only time will tell. :)

If Cheetah Hunts first little and final launches are anything said for "slower speed" launches. This ride will follow in great footsteps, er Paw pr..dang it I mean Manta ripples! :lmao:

Everyone who thought that this coaster is "tame" is going to be in for a surprise! I can't wait to see how the theming interaction will be when the ride is completed!

Exactly, the final launch on Cheetah Hunt is (correct me if I'm wrong) around 40 MPH and has an unholy airtime hill, which is how fast Manta's launch is. Considering these hills are smaller than CH's, it'll be interesting to see exactly how much airtime this ride ends up having.

I wonder if Manta will end up having the best airtime in CA? :P You never know... :kiss:

^The chances are pretty high since apparently California has yet to learn the concept of airtime..

Cheetah Hunt's first launch is amazing. It catches everyone off guard and sparks some fear into the people about to ride it. I'm sure Manta won't disappoint.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Thats better ;)

This rides looking pretty fun, but most likely the trains will be the best part of it.

I wouldn't expect much airtime on this coaster, but I would expect it to be a very fun family ride, perfect for the demographic of the park.
