New Coaster At Sea World, Orlando?

Sea World Orlando: Rumors suggest a new coaster is now under construction at Sea World Orlando.

Been doing some scanning of various web sites and one persistent rumor is that Busch is putting a new coaster in at Sea World, Orlando.

One "fact" is that the company has filed for a new trademark to use the name “Manta” on a new “amusement park ride”.

Several rumors suggest a B&M Flyer is now under construction at Sea World Orlando, but other rumors suggest a kiddie coaster, or more of a family themed coaster. If you do a little searching you can find photos of the construction site, but not a lot of details.

Anyone know anything more at this point?

Thanks, Justin...I agree. Everything I have read seems to point to a B&M Flyer. I wonder when Busch will make the official announcement?

It's offical Sea World announces a ride with coaster elements in it today. I submitted the article but here is the link to the Orlando Sentinel page on it.
