 Review of Mantis @ Cedar Point
0 Rating Posted by: detroit_jc on 2/21/2008 10:27:00 PM
The mantis is just a great looking coaster. I really dig the color scheme. this coster and the former King Corba are the only stand ups ive been on & I really enjoyed them both. It has a pretty tall first drop and i like the speed and the smooth transititions into the inversions. i have never felt beat up by this coaster or any other maybe cause im about 62 or maybe im just immune because i like the rough and tumble aspects of roller coasters. Folks, in my opinion a coaster has to be agressive & tough. thats why woodies are my favorite coaster. but an aging steel coaster does come pretty close.

Im about that height and this thing beat the hell out of me. I rated it dead last this year in the coaster poll. Mantis and pretty much all of the other B&M stand ups are an ugly doo-doo stain on their otherwise impressive C.V.

Interesting reasoning on your rating. I too enjoy the rough and tumble aspects (I dont even hate Mean Streak that bad) but I do not like karate chops to my neck and blunt trauma to my ears. I rate this in the 7 range.

i have never experienced anything painful to the head on this ride, but i forgot to state that this coaster was in its 1st or 2nd year of operation when i rode it, if that may possibly be an issue.
