I love how the park continued the great theming as seen around the rest of the park on this ride and got the Magic Mountain down perfectly with ad-wraps on every surface possible. The only thing missing was a single train operation.

Wow....that looks pretty amazing. All the theming they put into it is pretty nice. The mist and dips close to the water make it look pretty cool. It also seems they did the keyhole type effect about 3 different times.

Thanks for posting an amazing video on my Birthday! Rob, do you like the B&M wing riders or the Intamin Wing Walkers better? I know there is nothing really in common but which is better!

 

I wanna win a bag of crap so badly!

One of the cool things about wing coasters is that you have a lot of opportunities for environment interaction (keyholes, near-miss supports, water effects, near-miss props). XRaptor looks like a lot of fun, especially if you include all the near misses.

These things aren't limited to Wing Coasters.

I thought that what you did with wild eagle was already nice but this was even better with the "middle POV" also included. And, overall it was a cool video, the best one of raptor so far.

Manta does the same. You get splashed by the fountains if you sit toward the back of the train.

This is different. Manta you only get *barely* wet, if you happen to sit in a certain seat, and I think it's mostly by accident. This, the splash effect works for the entire train, and you're almost guaranteed, no matter which side you sit on, that you'll get hit by at least one water bomb while on the ride.

 

I've been on Manta several times, in the back of the train, and actually never got wet. A lot of it has to do with the weight of the train, timing, etc....

This has to be the best themed ride ever! I would really like to know what kind of mind would come up with such an idea.
