There is something new that is happening at Sea World Orlando this coming May 22, 2009. It is the much awaited opening of Manta, the only flying roller coaster of its kind in the world. How would you and 31 other riders like to experience being under the ocean having a thrill ride on a manta ray, lying prone and face down at highway speeds? Other than a thrilling ride, you will get a 360-degree view of the underworld seeing all kinds of tropical fishes, sea dragons and thousands of creatures all around you.
What will you do to be able to get on the front line and to experience the flying ray? Sea World Orlando is having a contest where you can win a “Front-of-the-line” pass to the Manta. To join, go to http://www.ridemanta.com and click “participate and win.” There are six activities that you can participate and win the contest. You must have an account to join (which is free) or if you have a twitter account, you use that to log on. On twitter, you have to follow @RealShamu to get inside tips on the Manta quiz but all the answers on the quiz are found on the Website. There are five manta questions and you have to answer them correctly. Be careful because you only have three chances to do it. When completed, you get an email from RideTheFlyingRay. Or, if you can take a picture showing your love for Manta by displaying “I Heart Manta”, upload your photo to Flickr. Submit your flickr user image URL and flickr user name to ridetheflyingray.com.
Now if you and your friends would like to join, you can do that by joining the contest “Fill That Row.” Pick three friends and email them the referral code generated and let them sign up too and fill your row using the referral code. When your row is complete you get an email from RideTheFlyingRay.
If you are fond of YouTube, you can upload a short video of yourself showing how excited you to ride the Manta. Enter the URL and title of your video. You can also download the Manta Mask from the Website and after following all the instructions, get a picture of yourself wearing it then upload it to Flickr then submit your Flickr image URL and user name.
For twitter users, follow @RealShamu and “tweet” in 140 characters or less why you are excited about the Manta. Make sure to follow the mandatory rules for your message to get qualified.
After the contests, here are the prizes:
If you completed two of the Manta site activities, you will get one complimentary electronic photograph from your Manta ride experience. But, if you complete all the six activities, you earn the Manta “Front-of-the-line pass" and be on the first to experience the Manta.
