Even rides like Magnum or Skyrush will hurt me, but despite that I still consider them amazing rides. In my opinion, it's not only that Mantis is rough or the restraint system is terribly bad, I just think the layout is boring. Especially the second half. I would definitely not consider it a jewel... :roll:



This exactly. And to add to that, I am not a fan AT ALL of stand up coasters. The only one I can stand to ride is Georgia Scorcher since it is usually a smooth ride with a fun layout. Mantis besides looking impressive in its location, did absolutely nothing for me.

I love mantis' second half, its so wacky with a lot of changes in direction. Much more interesting than most looping B&M endings, I think. (So sick of interlocking corkscrews)

I love donkeys more than me.

My last trip to CP I rode Mantis around 8PM, and really really enjoyed it. My legs were sore from walking all day and the G force pulling the blood to my legs really helped afterwards. From what I could tell the trim was off and we barely slowed down at the MCBR. Maybe I just had a good run, but I found it enjoyable.

Can I park my donkey here?

^ Ah you beat me to it! ;)

Space Spiral came down this morning. This picture was sent to me (Sorry for the poor quality, it was taken with a cell phone camera).

I live just down the street from Cedar Point, and I guess you'd label me as a fanboy!

^Wow, that just looks... unreal. They weren't kidding when they said they would just rip the tower down.

My favorite roller coaster is dumb.
