Soar at top speeds and glide above the world on SeaWorld® Orlando's Manta®. Start with an inverted nosedive and feel the forces of the sea! This flying coaster gives you the experience of a giant, flying ray, while gliding you over water through its one-of-a-kind twists and turns! Face-down, you're lying parallel to the coaster track, making Manta® the ultimate thrill at SeaWorld® Orlando!
Midday lines can be long, so it’s best to ride Manta® as soon as you enter the park after opening.
Riders cannot carry anything with them onto to the ride, but there are pay lockers where you can store your things outside. If you are wearing non-lacing shoes, you must store them in the hanging baskets at the exit.
A Frog Family favorite, for sure! Manta® easily ranks as one of Tad’s top 5 Orlando coasters. It has a height requirement of 54” so Lily still has a few years before she can ride. That’s good news for Mommy Frog though; the inversions make her dizzy.
Manta® is an outdoor roller coaster located between Stingray Lagoon® and Dolphin Nursery at SeaWorld® Orlando. The duration of the ride is about 3 minutes. Each row of the coaster seats four people. Each seat has a pull-down shoulder restraint. There is no floor to the ride vehicles, so your feet dangle. Guests must be at least 54 inches to ride.
Guests using wheelchairs enter through the main ride entrance then transfer into the ride vehicle.
