    Manta Soft Opens

    Manta soft opened today. Sea World also released an on-ride video taken by one of the employees during testing.

    And also a new commercial of the ride.

    It really looks like Sea World has a winner on their hands here.

    Cool, I'm actually really waiting to hear an opinion of somebody who has ridden both Manta and Tatsu. I know many are saying Tatsu is still going to be better because it's "Taller and Faster" but I really think that Manta has EVERYTHING (Theming, close to the ground effects, etc) that Tatsu doesn't offer.

    I believed you, of course, it WAS pretty much common knowledge.

    The videos won't load for me.

    But I did see photos of the queue on another site and it is absolutely stunning!

    Tatsu is my favorite ride anywhere so I'm very interested in riding Manta one day just to see which one I end up preferring.
