Wow, those supports look really weird... haha, its sort of neat to look at how B&M supports change between the years. This looks liek a totally new support concept....but then again it might just be a weird angle of the picture messing with my head.

If your talking about the second highest support, its because it is shaped differently. The reason is because at the bottom of the support, there is actually a building in the way (a gift shop to be exact) so one side of the support is angle differently than what it usually would have been in order to fit the support.
Awesome, thanks for the link!
I'm looking forward to pictures from the sky tower this week!
I like that it's going over that pathway. Kraken is a great coaster, but one thing I don't like about it is that the major parts of the coaster aren't near any pathways. I like coasters like Sheikra, where the track is all located close to pathways. It looks like this will be a ride like that.
Here are some new photos in from Sea World from the topping off of the coaster.
ORLANDO, FLORIDA (OCTOBER 29, 2008) SEAWORLD REACHES NEW HEIGHTS
Construction crews at SeaWorld Orlando secured into place the highest track portion of the park’s new flying coaster, Manta. Upon fitting the piece into place 140 ft above ground, a ceremonial evergreen, a symbol of good luck in the high-steel trade, was placed atop the track segment. SeaWorld will unleash the next generation of thrills with Manta when it opens in summer 2009.
