A First Look at SeaWorld Orlando’s Manta
The B&M flying roller coaster that’s rumored for SeaWorld Orlando is all but confirmed at this point. Concept art has emerged oddly enough on a British site. The Disney Information Bulletin Board has posted three pieces of concept art. The pictures show a B&M flying coaster themed as a manta or sting ray skimming the surface of the water.
It’s still not clear how these ‘up-close animal encounters’ will work, but Manta looks to take the flying coaster concept to whole new level just as Magic Mountain’s Tatsu did. *UPDATE* The DIB has removed their page on Manta, so I’ve included the remaining photos below:
UPDATE 5/16 – I’ll be tweeting live all day from the Manta Media Day and while I’m at the other Orlando parks this coming Thursday the 21st. So make sure you follow me on Twitter for all the live updates, mini-reviews, and first impressions.
UPDATE 5/30 – Check out my full Manta review including photos and videos.
