How long is this ride ? it looks huge !
Go home Intamin you are drunk
I don't recall ever seeing anything quite that ornate, but Sea World Orlando did a masterful job at concealing the vast majority of Manta's footers by lining the paths with thick vegetation. I also remember Kings Island placing planters close to Diamondback's lift supports to at least draw your eye away from the massive hulk of concrete on the path.
I'll have whatever it is they're having!
Riddle me this!
The park is due to have its grand opening tomorrow.
Still seems unclear if Steel Dolphin will make that opening but hope so. Cant wait to see how this thing rides.
A day late but the coaster is now OPEN!
This coaster probably wont be too much better than Cheetah Hunt IMO, even though it has a couple of wacky elements, but I'm glad it's open. Also, it only ha 2 trains and a throughput of 885pph, which could cause some issues. Does it have any inversions, and is there any news on the Zamperla cred?
Did it open yesterday or today, out of interest? The coaster looks fun!
Okay file this under 'new rollercoasters I had no idea about until today'. Looks pretty fab tbh - an early member of this new gen track layout where they fit in as many outer-banked curves as possible.
So a partial on-ride POV has surfaced on Weibo:
Looks fast, but not very intense.
Never mind speed or intensity, the best part is the amount of trash that's built up in the tunnel already. Love it, really gives it character.
^ Love me some realistic theming.
Here is a POV of Steel Dolphin by MiyaPA Masane:-
The POV is now online - what a lovely ride actually! I first expected an unspectacular coaster based on seeing the drawn-out layout, but seeing the ride in motion the pacing and many elements look great. Some hills do seem to lack airtime, but otherwise, fun mix of airtime and twisty stuff!
Can't wait to hopefully ride this next June while I go there for the AAE as well <3
Wow, if Taiga has any pacing like this it will sure be an awesome ride.
Those launches look seriously powerful, even though they look and sound weird.
Not sure about the middle part of the layout if I'm honest but the final part after the second launch looks fab. I just wish there was more to it really.
I don't think anybody was expecting Maverick because it certainly isn't...but all those turns do look like a hell of a lot of fun. I agree with the comments regarding the launches - they do look like they pack a punch.
