Mack reveals Manta train

Here’s a glimpse of what the trains will look like on SeaWorld San Diego’s new Manta coaster, slated to open spring 2012.

The 2,835ft-long attraction by Mack Rides will be restricted to the 30ft above ground level thanks to the strict height limit that governs most of the San Diego coast, however the park will excavate 24ft in order to create a 54ft drop, as well as a water feature.

The relatively low height will result in some high speed turns and exciting direction changes. Besides the initial launch, riders will experience a second launch midway through the ride.
