Themed as a "flying ray," Manta is a 140-foot-tall Bolliger & Mabillard Flying Coaster that runs on 3,359 feet of track, reaching a top speed of 56 mph while going through four inversions, including an 98-foot-tall pretzel loop. But the roller coaster isn't the only element to Manta, which won the 2009 Theme Park Insider Award as the Best New Attraction of the year. While you are waiting to board, you'll walk through an aquarium with floor-to-ceiling underwater viewing, filled with stingrays, tropical fishes, an octopus, live coral, and much more. Here's a tip: You ride in a "chair" that's actually more of a harness. When your seat tilts forward into the flying position (think like you're Superman here), scoot forward a bit so that your shoulders come to the top of the harness. It'll make the ride much more comfortable and you'll feel more secure.
