RIP Mantis

Roller Coaster afi­ciona­dos are plan­ning their trips to Cedar Point to pay their respects to the Man­tis, who has ful­filled his duty as a world-class thrill ride for 18 years. When it was built in 1996, the Man­tis was billed as the world’s tallest, fastest and steep­est stand-up roller coaster in the world. But it will shut for good next month. It has given more than 22 mil­lion rides. Cedar Point says it will be replaced by some­thing even bet­ter in the Roller Coaster Capi­tol of the World. Man­tis fans are head­ing their for a final selfie on the Mantis.
