You know with Mantis how it really has that presence in the park after the brake run? With the water, and the interactive element that really wows people when they walk by? To me it seems like they overlooked that kind of element with this ride.

I know there are two close parts near the paths that interact inside the park, but they seem to come short of the type of attraction I'm used to seeing at this park. Even a low 270 degree helix above the water right there where the guests get to look at for more than a split second really would have added the wow factor that Mantis and Kraken have.


Have you seen the concept art?

Oh B&M...what a buzzkill. The ride should still be good, but just yesterday I was thinking that hill could provide some great airtime.

Just because it has trims does not mean they will be used. Banshee had trims and they were never used. They were removed and installed on Diamondback's MCBR

Every hyper/giga coaster B&M has ever built has a trim, why would this one be any different?

At least it's just on 1 hill. Given the fact that they're trying to mimic the quick movements of a shark, hopefully the MCBR won't break the train as it passes through. Here's another thing to keep in mind, Mako is using shorter trains than all other Hyper/Giga coasters. The shorter trains really helped Thunderbird, so hopefully they'll help Mako.

Are the rods coming off of the side of the track going to be for nets, or is that for some kind of theming?

That would appear to be for netting since that section goes over the main path.

They are actually going to kill to Raven's with one Symoné.

There will be nets, but they are going to be fish nets, so they can be considered theming as well.
