Article from the St. Pete Times confirming that the ride has been pushed back to a summer opening. The article is a "little" light on details though.

We are going the last week in August. I really hope it will be open by then!! I really thought that it would have been, but now with the latest news I am worried that it won't be. My kids were really looking forward to going on this.

If that is the case then it will hurt Universal for the summer attendance

With Manta's opening apparently pushed back, I can see why they don't feel the urgency for a spring opening. That said, things do seem to be progressing!

Orlando Sentinel article about Rockit's delay:

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/trave...,4407333.story

But there is NOTHING, not even on the fox 35 website, saying that Manta got delayed.

So, Manta = Opening May 22. Rockit = Opening Summer 2009.

As long as it is open by the end of October, I'm cool.

So excited about this ride.

Their website says summer 2009. It used to say spring 2009. That's all I was going by. Sorry about that.

Thanks for posting the article! After reading the description, I am now concerned I may get sick. I can handle any coaster except DD in which 50% of the time I feel like I am going to faint when I get off of it. Keeping my fingers crossed that it will be open by early July!!!

That's cool...I was just asking since I hadn't seen anything in the news about the delay.

Maybe SW considers 5/22 the "summer" because its so hot in Orlando that time of year - at least for us northerners.
