Manta Now Open!
Manta®, a new mega-attraction that seamlessly transitions guests from the awe of watching rays in underwater flight...into the sensation of actually being one, is officially open at SeaWorld.
Swooping over sea and sky, Manta takes guests on an exhilarating ride on a coaster shaped like a giant manta ray, with dozens of twists and turns and a thrilling 54-foot drop. Known as a linear synchronous motor (LSM) launch rollercoaster, Manta reaches maximum speed in just two seconds and features a launch tunnel with an enveloping 270-degree screen that immerses riders into the world of rays.
Manta's 100,000-gallon aquarium is filled with three species of marine life: California bat rays, diamond stingrays and shovelnose guitarfish. Eight acrylic viewing windows afford guests an amazing view of the rays and a shallow above-ground pool gives them the chance to touch and feed rays. This hands-on experience allows guests to make a connection with rays that may inspire them to protect this amazing species by cherishing its ocean home, and the environment in general.
