LOL...i know. i do think superman is very slow...and short. they made tatsu bigger and better by far. that pretzle loop is my favorite element in superman. they used to have the camera at the bottom of it. lol. fun faces there! you are making me want to go back to cali early! :) hopefully manta will be big!!! then i can get my fix earlier...BUT...being a more family oriented place...probably not... but its still fun! cant wait to see how they accomplish the water spurts!

I still want to go to SFGAD. I was supposed to go this summer, but my friend owed in taxes instead of a getting a refund, so we had to settle for something a bit cheaper. I really wanted to ride El Toro, but maybe next year. I also wanted to try another flyer. Even though Tatsu is longer than the Superman clones, it's faster too, so it looks as if the cycle time is about the same.

im not understanding why the above comment was posted. please school me on the reasoning behind the "last warning" comment - as i read the entire topic between monday and tuesday, and didnt see anything stating a first warning... im sorry if i dont understand why. i did re read the link (rules) again too, just to be sure, and i still didnt do anything wrong... we went off topic for a second..and not even really - b/c we were comparing the other flying costers.

....and im still fixated on any information anyone has about Manta.

ADMIN EDIT: You've been warned before about lack of capitalization, over capitalization, and text grammar. Twice today both through posts and PMs.

but totally back to topic --> i found this on youtube...

The ride seems slow...just like Superman. :( Doesnt show a water splash effect once it hits the water either. And it seems the pretzle loop will be in it...which is good - im excited about that. Cant wait to see actual on ride footage! Does anyone know how acurate these computer generated rides are for speed purposes?

^ I think that that ride looks fun. Although I can almost guarantee you that this is not what the layout will look like. This looks like someone saw the concept art, got excited about it and decided to make a No Limits version of the ride and post it on youtube. There is no source on the layout and I doubt that Sea World would use No Limits for their promo video, unless they wanna take the Hershey route. ;)
- Come visit me at Test Track, Mission Space, and Spaceship Earth in EPCOT over at WDW, I would love to meet some more TPR members!

^ Yeah, is there any proof that is the actual ride? If it is, then I think it'll be a great addition to the park. I like how it has more parts on your back than your standard "S:UF" clone.

Major work has begun at Sea World Florida for Manta. Lots of dirt work being done, footers getting dug and the beginnings of pond work has begun.
Lots of photos from todays 5-13-08 update can be seen here

^That's really not major, but nonetheless it's nice to see that they've finally started some actual construction.
