Manta, SeaWorld Orlando’s latest coaster fits final track piece

In the above photo SeaWorld construction crews put Manta’s last piece of track into place today, finishing the flying coaster’s structure. Manta is a flying roller coaster the likes of which could only be built by SeaWorld in Orlando. Manta will inspire riders with amazing underwater animal habitats, then soar them face-down, in a horizontal position, aboard a manta-inspired steel coaster. At its highest point Manta will stand 140 ft above the park.

Manta is slated to open summer 2009. (Photo courtesy SeaWorld)
