The SeaWorld Manta will be a Mack launch coaster into a video effects tunnel before skimming the surface of the Forbidden Reef section of park. (The original Manta coaster, at SeaWorld Orlando, is a Bolliger & Mabillard flying coaster.) San Diego's more family-friendly Manta will cover 2,835 feet of track in 1 minute and 56 seconds, with a top speed of 43 miles per hour.
