It was a banner day yesterday for SeaWorld’s upcoming flying coaster, Manta. The highest piece of track was hoisted and secured in place. Upon fitting the piece into place 140 feet above ground, a ceremonial evergreen, a symbol of good luck in the high-steel trade, was placed atop the track segment, along with the America flag. After reaching the highest point of the ride, the rest of the construction, quite literally, is all downhill.
Another picture and a video from the construction site is below.
