According to the Sea World Passporter...Manta's AP "Preview" is 5/26 through 6/30 from 8-9am which is an hour before the park opens.

This could be some light. From and article posted a few hours ago.

"Delays have pushed the debut back to “late spring/early summer” 2009, which sounds a whole lot like “late June to early July” and way after Memorial Day weekend, the traditional launch for new rides."

Yeah...it's a shame the construction on the HR3 is taking so long but this is a VERY complicated attraction. I'm sure it will be well worth the wait.

I hear ya...
Just bummed we will miss out on it this trip, but hopefuly we will be back in 2 or 3 years and can see it them-we just don't get to visit as often as we would like.

Those ride elements are making me drool and pant in anticipation. I just don't want to blow it up too much in my mind and set myself up for disappointment, but I really do believe it will live up to my expectations (unless they brake it to death). Normally I'm a B&M coaster kind of gal, but I'm eager to see what German engineering is going to turn out here.

Theme Park Insider posted pictures of track coming out of the station and curving upwards onto the lift. There is also a picture of the top portion of the ride being transported on the back of a trailer - presumably being moved from the straging area to the construction site.

Exciting!

That picture on Theme park insider is of the drop portion,not the lift hill.This is why I'm concerned cause that's been up for a while, they were on a roll with construction and with basically just the lift hill and top part of the drop to go and then construction just stops,it's been like that for so long now that I don't know about that late spring/early summer opening,we're almost there now and they need to finish building the actual coaster,finish up the station,testing which can go for up to a month,I honestly can't see this opening until at least mid July.

Skipper Garrett (one of the team members) posted some pictures here of new construction on the lift:

More posts have been added to the thread now suggesting that the lift hill is almost complete.....I'm praying it will be open before we come home on 06/11.

Yeah, I just read that. SkipperGarrett said that there were only 2 more pieces to go for the lift. He said he'd post more pictures later.
