Park of the Week: Efteling

New construction photos of SeaWorld's Manta coaster

September 3, 2008, 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.

September 7, 2008 at 7:18 AM · 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.
