FYI to anyone visiting soon, Manta is closed until February. This was a late add to the rehab schedule. It wasn't there when I checked two weeks ago.
On a positive note, Electric Eel is a great addition.

Since it hasn't been posted yet here, a document used at a city council review in San Diego includes Mako's layout as well as renderings showing the impact on the skyline. You can find that document here:
Based on the layout and series of elements/inversions, I am really getting Valkyria vibes from this. My fingers are crossed it has the regular 6-across dive trains (like Baron, Krake, etc.) as opposed to the ones with vests. I can see it going either way.

Yeah, I suppose you're right. Just remember that the new B&M Dive coaster that opened in South Korea last year features B&M's original restraints, which leads me to believe it is a park decision and not B&M's. I think it could really go either way, and even though it's a small feature, I really do think it makes a difference in ride experience.
But I digress. This is a fantastic addition to the park and the first B&M in SoCal since Tatsu 13 years ago, so I'm thrilled.
I saw on twitter that last night some gondolas got stuck after wind caused the circuit breaker to flip. 16 people had to be rescued. It was a cold night too. Had to be tough to rescue people above water. This won’t be good for the park but glad to hear everyone was rescued eventually.
