WIN a Chance to be first to Ride MANTA at Seaworld

SeaWorld Orlando

is offering 28 DIBB members the chance to be among the first in the world to ride on its new extraordinary ‘flying’ coaster, Manta, alongside young British Olympic hero, diver Tom Daley - before the ride even opens to the public.

Tom is to celebrate his 15th birthday with a completely different sort of dive when he flies through the air and dives across water on Manta – SeaWorld’s new world first combined rollercoaster and marine life attraction on 20th May 2009 – and you could be joining him.

You will soar at speeds approaching 60mph, heights up to 140ft and through four inversions, as well as taking in the thousands of fish and over 300 rays housed within the ride’s mesmerising seven acre marine experience.

The ride, which is not opening to the public until Friday May 22nd, is a world-first combined coaster and marine-life attraction that captures the speed, power and grace of the mysterious manta ray. A cutting edge marriage of steel and sea, Manta will immerse visitors in a mesmerising underwater universe with close-up views of rays and colourful sea creatures, before ‘flying’ riders facedown in giant manta ray shaped carriages.

The prize includes tickets to SeaWorld Orlando on May 20th 2009, a ride on Manta with Tom Daley in the afternoon of May 20th- two days before it opens to the public, a signed picture of Tom and a SeaWorld goodie bag per group/family. The competition is open to any DIBB member who is already planning to be in the Orlando area on May 20th.

To enter, please send your name and email address to: Stacey@freerange.eu

In the email let us know how many possible riders would be in your group.
eg: if you are a family of four and only three of you are keen to ride Manta and are above the 52” (1.32m) height limit, please let us know there will be 3 riders, 1 non-rider – that way we’ll know how many riders and how many tickets to SeaWorld to provide for you.

Entries must be received by 11:59pm May 14th
Winners will be announced on Friday 15th May


Remember you will need to make your own travel arrangements to the Seaworld Themepark in Orlando Florida.

No substitution prizes or cash alternatives are possible. It’s a money-can’t-buy prize experience!
