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.

^This is Sea World San Diego. They're not trying to be a major thrill park or trying to appeal largely to thrill seekers.

I know.that there's only two right now, but how smooth are Mack launched coasters?

I know that, I just was hoping it would be a little more along the lines of Manta in Orlando, which I live close to. I absolutely love that attraction as a whole, and the coaster portion is beautiful.

^ They have lots of restrictions SWSD as the city has a height limit and very strict policies.

^^ That would be nice, but I don't think they would have their first coaster be that major.

This is a PERFECT ride for SWSD. These Mack Launched coasters are the smoothest rides I've ever been on (smoother than a brand new B&M), they feel like floating on a pillow around the track.

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.
