Manta Opens Tomorrow at SeaWorld San Diego!

The wait for Manta is over! On Saturday (May 26, 2012), SeaWorld guests will get to Ride the Ray and Feel the Rush on San Diego’s first double-launch, multi-media roller coaster!

A festive grand opening ceremony hosted by SeaWorld Park President John Reilly and attended by San Diego City Council President Tony Young and San Diego City Council Member Lori Zapf will precede the first official Manta launch. Following a dramatic performance and drum roll by ensemble group TAIKOPROJECT and a “kelp ribbon” cutting, the first riders on Manta will be students from the Elementary Institute of Science — a science enrichment program dedicated to nurturing the intellectual curiosity of San Diego's young people by providing hands-on experiences to stimulate an ongoing appreciation and understanding science, technology and the environment. As part of the grand opening, SeaWorld is making a donation to the nonprofit program and has invited 20 students to ride Manta on opening day.

Here is a sneak peak at what it is like to ride Manta...we hope you will join us soon to Ride the Ray and Feel the Rush for yourself:
