Unique configurations: Pop up aquarium — smaller guests “pop up” in the middle of this aquarium, surrounding themselves with hundreds of fish.
Overhead aquariums — part of the massive ray habitat, this 220-square-foot viewing panel means guests will find hundreds of rays schooling over their heads.

Did you know?71,000 pounds of salt are in the clear water of Manta’s fish habitats. That’s about equal to 586,000 2-ounce salt shakers you might find on your dinner table.
The total weight of the water in Manta’s habitats is about 2,125,000 pounds, as much as 150 killer whales or about as much as an empty space shuttle.
SeaWorld’s water experts maintain a very special — and secret — recipe for saltwater. Don’t ask, it’s not for sale.
The 220-square-foot overhead viewing panel is the single largest, free span acrylic piece ever produced by its manufacturer, Nippura.Manta’s 3,000 fish and rays eat almost 300 pounds of food each day. In comparison, Shamu eats close to that each day, too.
