New construction photos of SeaWorld's Manta coaster

Published: September 3, 2008 at 3:19 PM

SeaWorld Orlando today released photos of factory construction of the Manta track, being prepared for the B&M flying coaster's debut at the Orlando theme park next year.

Okay, these could be pictures of new municipal sewer pipes being built, for all I can tell, but as the season winds down for many theme park fans around the country, I know that pictures of fresh rail keep many readers happy and warm during their downtime. Enjoy.

Its actually great to already be seeing pictures of the tracks. Even though they aren't on site yet, just seeing them gets me excited thinking what could be next...

I haven't been to Sea World in a year. Where in the park is Manta going to be located?

I was in Orlando the past 2 weeks and with unlimited access to SeaWorld on our Discovery Cove/Busch/SW/Aquatica passes (and my love for Kraken) we visited a few times. We went up on the sky tower and right now the site for Manta is just cleared and there are diggers on site. It's good to see pictures of the track, it sounds like a good new addition to the park.

Thanx so much for the update! I cannot WAIT to get on it! Does anyone know of a tentative date? I know it said 2009 but didn't know if there was any specified time frame. Thanx!
