    They started vertical construction as well, as the first few supports have been put into place. Construction is finally moving into high gear!!

    I still have pictures from Halloween to post, and still need to make it to the Christmas display. But for now I love this video:

    Re: Sea World San DIego Picture Dump!

    After a few weeks I made it back to the park. I really wanted to check up on how Manta was rolling along.

    But first thing first... COKE IN THE PARK! Really the best new thing I have seen in SWSD in a long time.


    COKE! by PadresFan619, on Flickr

    Ok, now on to Manta.

    The cars look good.. a little empty but good. After seeing the track I see why they have a good amount of open-ness in the cars - there seems to be lots of sharp twists and turns on the ride. I guess to make up for the lack of coolness that the Orlando park has. The person standing by the ride said one of the reasons SD got the shaft was because "The San Diego park has more of a focus on education". When really the problem is the grumpy old farts running the city and worried a true ride will kill all the fish in the area.

    And good news! Have not seen this mentioned yet. Pass members will have early entry to get some rides in.

    For updates:

    Now track pictures!

    I hope they finish this before it opens! can you say Final Destination?

    And notice the fence here. I wonder if this is the final draft of keeping you from the ride area. Looks too fashioned to be a temp thing.

    The track is looking good, maybe this will be better than I thought, still not in the same ballpark as Orlando.. but that is something we should learn to live with at this point since we do not have the support from the city DL and SWO has.

    Re: Sea World San DIego Picture Dump!

    I'm glad to see that Manta is coming along well, but I'm far more excited that I can now get Mr. Pibb in the park! I doubt that I'll be able to pass a snack stand now without stopping for a refill.

    Re: Sea World San DIego Picture Dump!

    It has been two weeks since my last visit and I wanted to check up on the coaster progress. Looks like the track is almost done and I can see the difference from my last trip. Here is some updates...

    You can click on any picture for full size.

    In this picture you can see 3 different sets of construction walls... yay for off season!

    Now that the track is almost done, and the skytower is up and running you can get an even better idea of the scope of the ride.

    SeaWorld San Diego Manta Construction by PadresFan619, on Flickr

    More track from the sky!

    ALMOST done.. still has some sudden ends lol. Looks like there is a conflict of space here...

    SeaWorld San Diego Manta Construction by PadresFan619, on Flickr

    cuuuuuurve

    SeaWorld San Diego Manta Construction by PadresFan619, on Flickr

    more cuuuurve

    SeaWorld San Diego Manta Construction by PadresFan619, on Flickr

    cuuuurve.. with bird poop! really bird poop is ALL OVER the track and supports. Makes you think of that bridge that collapsed because of too much bird poop....

    Not curving off the curve theme...

    I posted a picture in the last batch with a fence in it and wondered if it was THE fence, looks like this is the fence that will keep us all safe from the ride.

    I thought SWSD was a Coke park now? Did the Shamu trainers not get the memo? Do they still stick the employees with the lower quality Pepsi products? Hmmm....

    SeaWorld SD - PEPSI?? WHA?? by PadresFan619, on Flickr

    And even SWSD has its low-end shopping area. You did not want it at full price, maybe you will but it for 9.99?

    SeaWorld SD Cheap Stuff by PadresFan619, on Flickr

    And here is a video where you can see the coaster in a moving ride, if you like that sort of thing. Sorry about the glare - it was bright and hot day today! They have updated the recording to talk about the ride to explain it if you are not talking over it or have no idea what you are seeing lol.


    That is all for now, next batch will be non-Manta. I promise

    Does anybody have pictures of the coaster being tested? I have not been to the park in a while.
