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.Don't think I've ever seen a park put planters in the footers placed on the midway. Quite clever, that.
The ride looks incredible. So many weird elements and transitions that should make for an awesome ride.
I'll have whatever it is they're having!
