The theme of this flying roller coaster at SeaWorld Orlando is inspired by Mantas and the underwater flight of these powerful creatures. Guests on Manta are placed in a horizontal "flying" position and then hoisted up 140-feet to begin a journey that includes four thrilling inversions at speeds reaching nearly 60 miles per hour. At times, the track on Manta soars so close to the water below that the train's wings actually skim the water.
