Today marked the official opening of Manta, SeaWorld’s newest roller coaster. As part of the opening festivities, we were invited to ride the thrilling attraction and have our trip recorded on the “MantaCam,” allowing us to bring you a first-person look at all of the twists and turns that can be found throughout.
Prominently featured in the video are myself (Ricky Brigante), editor and chief photographer Matt Roseboom, and writer Deborah Brauser. I was the only one wearing a microphone, so most of the yelps, screams, and other strange noises you hear during the video are coming from me. Enjoy.
In addition to the MantaCam, SeaWorld took some fantastic stills of us having a good time on the ride, like the one included above. Here are a few more:
