How long before the "dueling" element is removed? Or has it been constructed in such a way that crazy people can't try to injure or kill other innocents?

The way they've done it on BSG, you don't really run side by side, except for the launch. The passes are more one train in front of the other, so you can see it. Which actually makes more sense.

Maybe that kind of timing can be applied to Dueling Dragons...?

I'd really love to visit this park, really only for this ride. It seems like a very underrated coaster, the Human side that is.

Hi Robert...since you liked Manta so much have you ever been on cheetah hunt in BGT? Its almost the same ride but much longer, and 3 launches instead of too. Same theme park you can really see the similarities in the rides. Cheetah is one of the best roller coasters I've ever ridden. Its like you say you can ride it over and over and it doesn't make you sick or bored.

Cheetah Hunt and Busch Gardens Tampa are high on my to-do list for 2013.

I'm glad you got to ride Manta. Tuesday, the 18th, I was at the park for the first time in a long time and attempted to ride it. It's the first coaster I was rejected from since I tried to ride all the coasters at SFMM and was told I was too old for The Road Runner Express. Of course, I wasn't too old for Manta. I couldn't get the light to go green on the "test" seat.
