The layout looks nice and compact! I could definitely see myself enjoying this.

Cool pictures! Do I spy some airtime? I hope so! Can't wait to see more progress.

Wait a minute. Intamin OTSRs... on B&M track... for a Mack ride?

But this coaster looks like tons of fun! I could never make out the exact layout of this, just a big delicious spaghetti bowl of twistiness. All the more exciting!

I really wanted to get a picture from the sky tower for more of an overview, but it was closed for refurb. So the only above ground pictures I got were from the Bayside Skyride and the top of the Sealion stadium. But it has lots of twists and turns and has a less than large footprint - so it does have a chance.

"The San Diego park has more of a focus on education".


That is technically true...only because of those San Diego old farts. IIRC, it was mentioned during Journey's construction that the city requires all new attractions to have "educational value." Though I personally don't notice a difference between the two parks in that regard either, since Orlando's ride queue's have exhibits too...

Yah, although Blue Horizons moved the Dolphin Show away from education an into show, but since the educational part is now the pre show, I can see how they got away with it. I don't mind them integrating "educational" values into attractions, especially when SeaWorld's core forus really is to educate people on marine life. Manta looks like it's going to be a fantastic attraction either way.

One thing I am a bit surprised by is that we've seen so little in terms of what Manta will be like as a whole. We've seen some light concept art and an NL recreations of the layout, but beyond that, we've really not seen much of what is going to be in store... I guess what I mean is we have all the pieces, but don't have the slightest clue how to put them together into the attraction.

I still have a feeling this attraction might be the "surprise hit" of the 2012 coaster season, everything so far looks great.

Honestly...I wish there was space at SWO for a roller coaster ride like this! It is a perfect family coaster with airtime, launches, movie projector screen launch effect, and not to mention the amazing MACK builders of this masterpiece...I can't find hardly anything wrong with this ride...we'll see how this operates when opened! :b

This looks rather legit. Can't wait for summer! This place will be that much more awesome when it opens. :D
