Can you name this roller coaster? The answer may surprise you.



Look at the picture above and leave a comment below on what rollercoaster this is with out reading the rest of the article and come back here when your done.

Ok, I’m going to assume that you either did it or you instantly read this next line ignoring the rules that where just given to you. You rebel you. Now do me a favor watch this.


Yes that is right, there is a clone of Manta, from the Seaworld park  in Orlando, made out in the middle of Japan. Renamed as Acrobat. Of course the park is one of the most visited theme parks in the world, Nagashima Spaland. It also happens to be the home of the longest roller coaster in the world.  Now you might ask why there is a clone of this roller coaster out in Japan. Well, its made by the same company, Bolliger & Mabillard. Why Nagashima Spaland wanted a clone of the ride at their park is kind of a guess. But IAAPA, the international association of amusement parks and attractions has their big conference in Orlando, Florida. Which happens to be really close to Seaworld. How easy would it be to say, “Oh your interested in buying a rollercoaster?” Go down the street and see the Manta we did that.

But it’s pretty crazy that minus an aquarium there is an exact clone of the ride in Japan! Congrats to you who got it right!
