They started vertical construction as well, as the first few supports have been put into place. Construction is finally moving into high gear!!
YUP! But I must say, I hope it goes higher than than what they have it at now lol. Here are a few pics of construction and I have a few more random park shots... As always click on the pic for full size.
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.
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.
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 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
