Manta is a Mack Launch Coaster that takes riders over and around the former Forbidden Reef section of the park. The ride's kicks off with a high-speed launch from a video tunnel, upon which images of rays are projected upon a 270-degree curved screen.

Manta covers its 2,835 feet of track in 1 minute and 56 seconds - the speed tops out at 43 mph and the largest drop is just 54 feet, but the twisting track design provides plenty of airtime.

Also part of Manta is a 100,000 gallon touch pool and aquarium that allows guests to reach in and touch/feed California bat rays, white sturgeons, and shovelnose guitarfish. Go downstairs (either via the ride line of the non-rider's side) for an underwater view of the aquarium animals!

A great family coaster with an excellent animal habitat to boot. 2 solid launches and a varied, long-slung layout is exciting for even the most hardened coaster enthusiast.
