^ There is an article somewhere on here that talks about Annual Passholders knowing about how to get "extra" tracks. Something says there will be instructions for passholders and a track list for them. They would not go through this much work for nothing.

Did you see a picture of the actual house facade somewhere, or are you just talking about the animated one on the website?
Well, I am very excited now after the full website update. I can now see that the rumors of a Army of Darkness house came from the War of the Living Dead scarezone. There will technically be 7 scare zones, if you count the entrance to the park, where there will be roaming ushers similar to the Mirror People last year.
Can't wait to see how the website ties all these houses together!

Where is this article? because no they haven't and no they won't.
You know what would really be interesting to see is to see a comparison of the project management for Rockit vs Manta. Both coasters were announced around the same time (Rockit March 18, 2008 vs Manta April 2, 2008). The two coasters are only 5 miles apart, so weather would have affected construction equally.
So how did Sea World get Manta opened on schedule, maybe even a little early with a three week soft opening (and man I LOVED that soft opening, got to ride multiple times with very little wait). Compare that to Rockit and the troubles they are having. How much of this could be attributed to Manta being a copy of Tatsu and Rockit being a whole new endeavor?
During construction of Manta, we saw several people post behind the scenes videos and pictures of how things were going and got real information from the people at Sea World. Remember how much buzz that helped produce? Don’t recall getting that same level of access from Universal.
Just seems like if I’m a theme park anywhere thinking about spending millions on a new attraction, a study of how both of these projects were handled could give some great clues as to how to get it right and how to get it wrong.
