To me this coaster looks basically like a smaller less impressive version of cheetah hunt, a ride which I was rather underwhelmed with initially (I forgave it because of its awesome night rides). I'm sure that demographically speaking, this appeals to the widest audience of seaworlds guests, but is it my cup of tea? No.
But that doesn't mean if I end up in San Diego I wont try it.

It's a perfect ride for the 'starting out thrillrider' set.
Agreed. I'd say that Manta will probably be around the same intensity of JTA, but with a much more cohesive theme and scenery interaction.
It's looking absolutely amazing, and it's the coaster San Diego has been waiting for.
^And it doesn't get you wet! It's important to remember that there is a percentage of population out there (like Dan!) that doesn't like getting 'wet in their clothes'. This is a much easier ride to deal with in a lot of ways.
