The Quest For Manta
Manta will be the second major roller coaster to be built at SeaWorld Orlando. Guests will find themselves flying directly over animal encounters as they twist and turn around the famous animal park. Thanks to the fine folks at SeaWorld one reader of The Disney Blog will win tickets to the park and front of the line passes to Manta when it opens next summer.
To win the contest you’ll need to post a picture of Manta’s main track as it’s being shipped from Ohio to SeaWorld Orlando sometime during the week of October 6. They’ll be identified with either the logo above or something similar from SeaWorld.
You can post a picture on your blog and link to this contest, or post it on a free account at Flickr. Either way you must email me the link so I can verify it.
I will draw one winner from all verified entries. I reserve the right to deny a picture if I don’t think I can verify it. All the pieces should be transported during the week of October 6th. So all entries must be emailed to me by October 15th to be included.
To help you out, SeaWorld has provided the route being taken by the trucks as they ship the main track:
From Clermont in Batavia, OH to Sea World in Orlando, FL — Rte 32 West out of Batavia to Interstate 275 South … I-275 south to I-75 South to Florida … I-75 south to the Florida Turnpike … Florida Turnpike to Interstate 4 … Interstate 4 to the Beachline (SR 528) … Beachline to SeaWorld Orlando.
Prize package details:
- Two admission tickets to SeaWorld Orlando (valid for one year).
- Front-of the-the-line access for two people for a ride on Manta (opens summer 2009). If the winner visits SeaWorld Orlando before Manta opens, they can choose front-of-the-line access on either Kraken or Journey to Atlantis.
- Travel expenses, meals, etc. are not included.
- Employees and contractors of Busch Entertainment Corporation and their families are not eligible.
Good luck, I hope you’ll be able to participate in this exciting quest for Manta.
