The Manta - Sea World Orlando

We are a theme park loving family. So, for the past few years, since she's been tall enough to ride, we've been trying to coax Alexis to ride the roller coasters. She has refused all but two (The Big Bad Wolf at Busch Gardens and Rock N' Roller Coaster at Disney Studios FL.) Much to my delight and surprise, after much insistence on my part, she agreed to try out the newest Sea World roller coaster with me.

It wasn't like any other roller coaster I've ever been on. We get in our seats and pull down the safety harness, just like any other roller coaster; however, additionally, our feet were locked in and before taking off they leaned us forward in our seats until we were facing the ground.

Alexis loved everything about it - even the parts where we plunged head first toward the ground! When we got off she was ready to go again. I said great - and, she should get her Dad to go with her.

So up they went...


so happy, waving their arms - thinking this is going to be fun....

and then they went down, and around...and around...


When Kevin got off the ride he looked like all the blood had been drained from his entire body. He said, "I've got to lay down."

I stopped worrying after the color began to come back into his face (it took awhile). He was really sick for the rest of the day. (After two hours of lying on benches, he finally worked up enough strength to make it back to the car.)

Kevin has been banned from riding roller coasters.


Thank goodness I have Alexis "the fearless" to go with me now! :)
