I love it Mac! I thought this was a NJ word and everyone else said y'all.
Glad to see we're not the only ones.

To me, late spring means June (although with this lousy weather they've no doubt lost a few days of work/testing lately).

I still think they are going to have the grand openning July 4th weekend. They had to factor in weather and some drawbacks.

This.

I've heard a radio station--one based in Miami--will be at Universal around that time. Is it official, that =

I'm hoping for 6/24, my last day at Universal. It's only 10 days away from the "opening date" so I think I have a shot at soft openings on my trip!

Hopefully soft openings will be during your trip jopaly. You still have a chance...

Uh oh, I just got back from Media Day at SeaWorld, and Rip Ride Rockit is going to have to be something pretty darned special to beat Manta. Hopefully it will be; it really has the potential. But dang, flying coasters are so cool! I will post a link to my report and photos later. I'm still working on it and my computer isn't cooperating.

After riding Manta, DH did finally convince me to buy a SeaWorld platinum passport. That way, even if we have to wait forever in line, we'll get to rides in a row.

I posted a link to my Manta report over on the SeaWorld board:
http://www.disboards.com/showthread....5#post31930575

I have good pics of the weird restraint system; I wonder how it will compare to Rip Ride Rockit's, which also looks quite unique from the photo's I've seen.

Do they honor the Platinums pretty easily? When we first got our Premiers at Uni, we had to carry around a brochure because they didn't want to let us to FOTL. Eventually they got used to 'em. Also, I'm a bit worried because I asked specifically when we bought 'em if they're good on Manta and they said yes. But someone on the SW board said they won't be till June or July. If they told me wrong, they're gonna give me a refund & I'll rebuy when that changes. We'll probably try this weekend.
