    Just received a pack from Worlds of Discovery and it has a section on the new Manta ride.

    "riders will first walk through an amazing underwater habitat amidst 300 rays and a myriad of tropical fish, then literally soar through the air, horizontally, face down on a Manta-inspired coaster"

    Opens 22nd May.

    That would work! :yes: I'll walk through and then exit. They'd have to, don't you think? Especially for something that dramatic? :eek:

    I'm a terrible coward about thrill rides, but I think I'd have to try that one! It looks amazing, I just wouldn't eat before riding, heh...:wink:

    Gareth's been on a small face down coaster before and loved it - so I think we may have to schedule this for next visit.

    Definitely need a trip report on it Mari! :thumbsup:
