The ride manufactured by S&S boasts the world steepest first drop at a angle of 112 degrees. The ride cost varies depending on who you speak to but the average price tag seems to be around 4 million pounds.
When the questioned about the strange name of the ride its a reference to other parks falsely boasting about their latest attractions been the worlds first etc… hmm wonder who they mean :).
The photographs were taken at various times of the day as you may notice from the dull skies.
Opened in 2009 Manta is the third B&M coaster at Seaworld in Orlando. Manta is the second flying coaster I have ridden after Air at Alton Towers in the UK. I really enjoyed Manta and at the time of year we visited in September the ride had hardly any queues.
For anyone who hasn’t rode I would recommend the back seat, its very intense and enjoyable.
I don’t really have that much more to say about Manta other than if your in Florida and you get the change to ride it, enjoy it 😉
Built in 1996, Mantis is one of the tallest and fastest stand-up scream machines in the world.
Built by Bolliger and Mabillard (B & M) Mantis is another unique ride experience at Cedar Point. Guests board stand up trains and fly down a 145-foot-tall first hill at a top speed of 60 mph.
This stand-up roller coaster turns riders upside down a total of four times, includes a 137-foot drop at a 52 degree angle.
I was in a group of about 50 members of Club Pleasure Beach and we got to ride Traumatizer (now relocated to Blackpool as Infusion) and the Cyclone wooden roller coaster (which was later demolished).
Also included in the tour was a Q&A session with one of the parks directors and a look into the workshops located behind the cyclone and finally a tour of the ghost train with the lights on.
These are the pictures taken at this event.
