    1st Manta Test Run At SeaWorld Orlando

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MI6Z2yR1cHI"][/ame][ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MI6Z2yR1cHI"]YouTube - Manta Test Run - 3/16/2009[/ame]
    Special thanks to DisneyPro for locating this new video for me. He is as his avatar sais ..an exceptional professional.


    One smooth looking ride! Climb aboard ladies and gentlemen and be among the first to experience the first test run of Manta. It's a fairly short clip, and the more noticably themed area is out of view. Just the same, the vid gives you a general idea of what a trek down the track will be like.

    It's safe to assume there will be daytime footage of the new coaster one day soon.

    I hope to ride Manta one day!

    I still can't get over the fact that the pretzel loop occurs so early on in the ride. There's going to be quite a few folks blacking out and not remembering the rest of the ride!

    I may just buy that ticket that allows for unlimited entry for the rest of the year... but the video has been removed by the user.

    ^^ The Fun Card. I've gotten that for Busch Gardens a couple times. Pay for a day, come back all year. Great deal for us FL residents. Still gotta pay for parking though.

    Thanks for the link Disneypro. I have to say, it looks delightfully nauseating! Can't wait to ride it.

    I love the "Zero Car" (manta ray) on the thing. This is most definitely going to be one of the nicest flyers out there.

    Thank you so much for the link Disney Pro!

    I can't wait to see the theming when completed. That zero car will probably make rides on the first car more worthwhile than they are on Tatsu. I know more people line up for the front than any other row but I just really dislike how you just hang there while waiting for the rest of the train to clear the lift Also, the G's aren't as intense in the front.

    The manta ray at the front of the zero car is a classy touch!

    Depending on whether you like intense G's or not will determin how close one desires to be to the zero car.
