I haven't ridden it in about 3 years but I was really suprised by it! I don't really like the morgan hypers but for some reason this 'junior' sized one packed quite a punch!

 

Obviously it's no Intamin or even B&M hyper but it's cool!

Being a San Antonio native i love steel eel. The front row has great views, and the back has the huge airtime. The sweeping drop near the water is pretty cool. The camel backs(which really looks like camel humps) is the only week spot. Theres some airtime, but minimal. The turn after the mcbr is fun, the inside is always the best. Now the camel backs on the way back is the best part of the ride. There is great speed and the airtime is absolutely awesome. I love it. The turns back or so so, and then its over. For a smaller hyper, like Elissa said, its quite enjoyable.

 

I forgot to mention theres almost never a line!

The first half of Steel Eel was fantastic. However, Sea World felt the need to bring the train to a virtual stop on the mid-course brake run. The second half just dragged on and on. It was horrible. I wanted to run our rental car into it and knock it over.

 

Walibi's Goliath is about the same height, but it's much, much better! (Isn't it annoying that we have like FOUR Goliath hypercoasters now?? The name isn't even a good one, lol)

nice! thats a great pic , thanks for the link! i kinda like the look of that turn , i havent come across any photos yet of it showing that turn, looks intense - until those annoying brake runs. Steel Force was braked pretty heavy last year, like the Eel , it dragged on too.

Isnt that the case with all Morgan hypers?? Judging from onride videos, it seems like all of them except Phantoms Revenge slows down alot before the final hills (Mamba, Steel Force, Steel Dragon,etc...)
