Pee-shaw, I've already ridden this coaster at IAAPA. It's pretty boring. All it does is sit in one place, forcing its riders to stare at a giant pink waterslide tube. The seats are incredibly comfortable though. :p

Looks good, I'll probably hop by there again next year once it's open. Cause San Diego is awesome, and we have platinum passes. :)

It kinda makes me wonder if the first launch will be enclosed in a tunnel, or why else would they go with black track?

^The description of the ride is on the first page of this thread.

Manta also will feature a unique “launch station” where the passengers will start the ride enclosed in a launch tunnel with larger-than-life images of rays projected on a 270-degree enveloping screen. This stunning introduction to the world of the rays also will visually enhance the physical acceleration as the ride launches down the track. This state-of-the-art projection system will be the first of its kind in the United States.

^Love the sound of that. It helps make Manta so much more than just another coaster (and it already seemed somewhat creative to me). My interest is steadily increasing!

I truly am excited for this coaster. It looks like it will have some pretty good forces and, if the concept art holds true, it will have some great interaction with the walkways and landscaping. Not to mention those trains are going to be sexy looking :lover:

Wow! Looking at that site banned update it shows how much track the ride still has to install. What a great little ride this'll be!

I was pretty skeptical about the ride, but these are some pretty tight transitions. I'm well convinced that there are going to be some nice air pops on this!

Go Mack...goooooo !!! I`m pretty excited that the US ist getting a ride with those stunning trains. And the layout looks promising, too.

Too bad I won`t be able to ride this anytime soon :(
