Media Day!
Today I was invited out to Sea World Florida for Media Day for the new ride Manta a B&M flying roller coaster. So I shot some photos of some of the fish tanks and a few other things inside the non riding section. The highlight of the day for me was getting an onride video which they called Manta Cam shot by the park on Manta. Was also able to do a small interview with Brian Morrow Director of Engineering one of the main people responsible for Mantas creation. I asked about the creation process of Manta and some of the things they did with Manta. Overall it was a short visit, got a few more rides, saw some cool fish and got to shoot a video making for a great visit. Many thanks to Sea World Florida for the opportunity to attend the media day activities for there new roller coaster Manta.
