Haha, very true. Several of the front seat ride on Atlantis have left me drenched to the bone, although not as much as Bilge Rat Barges ;) .

Tis ride looks much more promising than when it was first announced IMO.

Are the mack launch coasters smoother than Cheetah hunt? I found that to be basically the smoothest coaster I have ever experienced.

^Cheetah Hunt is an Intamin coaster whereas Manta at SeaWorld San Diego is a Mack ride. It is especially difficult to compare Manta to other Mack launched coasters considering how few others there are currently (Blue Fire).

Intamin can be more intense, while mack has a overall smoother ride , but overall they are both great. I really don't care as long as its a credit.

Rollercoaterpro has posted new pictures of Manta construction. I just love the color. Even though the ride is low to ground, I'm loving some of the high banking and tight turns that I am seeing.

^Was it me or did was there little white spots on the track? Was it just the reflection of the sun or just me? or something that construction has to do with???
