This seems like the perfect family coaster. It looks amazing. I'd like to see more of these popping up around the country, especially over here on the east coast. These even seem like they would be good family coasters for companies like Cedar Fair... even if they didn't have all the theming and tunnel that Manta has.
Congrats to SWSD on such a fantastic (and much needed) coaster!
I am so excited to finally update you guys! THIS RIDE IS FREAKING AMAZING! Even the video doesn't do it justice.
- the Manta area isn't finished yet. There is a lot of landscaping, decorating, lighting, and work on the queue to be done before everything comes together.
- the rocking back and forth of the car at the launch is pretty neat! It gives you a better view of the screen, and gives you a feeling of anticipation, like "ready.......set.........go!"
- there is a negative G hill halfway through that is wicked. all the launches and banks feel much faster due to the close quarters. Manta really is an exciting ride
I'm going to leave a lot of stuff out, else it wouldn't be fair to the TPR guys who are fortunate enough to go this week. But in short, come out to San Diego and Ride the Ray, Feel the Rush!. I look forward to the week's updates!
Queue isn't finished yet, so there's just a long line
construction near touch-ray pool
neat ray-themed station
1st row is definitely worth the wait!
Manta in action!
hello little guy. if it weren't for you, Manta would never exist!
