Mantis (Cedar Point)

Postby Simba » Sun Jul 22, 2012 10:02 am

Mantis is a steel stand-up roller coaster, manufactured by Bolliger & Mabillard, at Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio. It set several stand-up coaster records when opened, including height 145 feet (44 m), speed 60 miles per hour (97 km/h), steepest 52°, and in the US, four inversions.

Mantis was originally designed to run three trains on its course. However, the complex trains have caused the loading times to be longer than anticipated. This caused the trains to "stack" on the brake runs. Stacking refers to guests waiting outside of the station on the brakes while waiting for a train to leave the station. To correct this problem, Mantis now runs only two trains, allowing quicker loading times. The other train is stored in the maintenance bay next to the ride, visible from the queue.

As I say for every coaster, this looks really fun. The layout looks really good.
