Like I said earlier regarding Mantis... we were there for 3 days this weekend, we rode every other adult coaster in the park multiple times including Corkscrew which we don't even like. Even though we knew Mantis might not be operating in it's current state after this year we still didn't ride it. It was horrible and I couldn't be happier to see it gone (well... as a stand up coaster).

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

I agree.

BTW, press release says they will let us know at a later date what is happening.

Just for speculation, what would be placed in the Mantis location?

Also, why would Mantis have "test paint"?

There's too many questions and too little answers.

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

I'm still confident that mantis isn't going anywhere.

Probably Mantis with new paint, a new name and new trains.

Can you see the donkey in my toast?

I always thought the barrier to floorless trains on Mantis was that it was money being spent on a ride that couldn't be marketed as new. This actually makes me really happy - creates another high capacity, fun ride in the park where there was a slow loading rough one before. Also allows them the chance to have a "new" sit down looping coaster. This is good, even if it won't help my "coaster count".

If the donkey is rockin, don't come knockin!

It translates to a werewolf like creature. Could it be that the Mantis gets squashed by this creature?

I don't mind the name too much as it's not part of the cookie cutter names like SF does. At the end of the day though the name does not make the ride.

I love donkeys more than me.

Very good video. A great way to tie it into the upcoming Halloweekends but that's all there is?

Not a good year for stand-ups with Skyrider and now Mantis, even though it was rumored a change was coming to the latter well in advance.
