The Manta Rollercoaster at SeaWorld Orlando, Orlando, Florida

Manta was built over a large part of SeaWorld so looking up and having the sky full of coaster isn't uncommon.

Manta has several rolls.  While these are classified as inversions I have a hard time calling them as such  because you don't actually invert rather roll instead.

I'd call this more of an inversion as you are diving head first to the ground.

While for most of its ride Manta soars high in the sky above eventually what goes up has to come down and Manta takes you skimming right above the water.

Manta doesn't actually touch the water but when you're on the ride and speeding over it the surface and the spray looks pretty close.
