More details emerge on SeaWorld's Manta
Written by Domenik Jost
While trying hard to hold back details on its next big coaster, SeaWorld Orlando faces some interesting new leaks today.Tweet
According to the Orlando Sentinel, SeaWorld Inc. has filed an application for "Manta" to be trademarked to be used as "entertainment in the nature of an amusement park ride"
Today, there was an artist rendering that was leaked out to the public on two theme park fan websites, one of these being IOACentral. The artwork showed a B&M Flying train design in the shape of a manta ray. The vehicles included four riders across laying face down. On the renderings you can see what appears to be a unique splash wave created by the wing touching the water during one of the turns.
SeaWorld's vice president of sales and marketing, Joseph Couceiro, said "It's going to have animal components, marine-life components. It will have a very unique, state-of-the-art ride, a roller coaster if you will, that will provide a sensation of gliding" He also said, "The combination of the animals and the ride is what makes it special."
