Can you believe it's been one year since Manta first opened at SeaWorld Orlando?
Well, it sure has, and the year has been one of exhilarating thrills. Not only was Manta voted Best New Attraction of 2009 by Theme Park Insider, Manta has spun millions of riders on the underside of a giant ray. And, it's flown nearly 53,000 miles - that's more than twice the circumference of the earth!
There were also millions of non-riders who passed through Manta's amazing underwater world filled with more than 3,000 animals -- including rays, sea horses and living coral -- in 10 separate habitats.
