Fantastic news, although it still seems quite a bit still needs to get done in the just over 2 months left till opening. Can't wait to experience this new attraction!

Hopefully this ride looks better than Atlantis! That's a fun ride the first few times, but it has a weak attempt at a theme and story line. So hopefully Manta is just all out fun and they drop any attempt at a story, or actually put quality into their story lines.
