This is Mantis

Mantis's loop is a bit oversized, as you can tell from this picture.
This is Mantis, the only stand-up roller coaster that I have been on. It was built at Cedar Point in 1996, when it was the tallest stand-up roller coaster. Mantis is 145 feet tall, goes about 65 miles per hour, and has 7 unique elements, including 4 inversions. I think that Mantis was a good ride, but I didn't enjoy it too much because it kind of hurt my legs. (Picture courtesy of www.coasters.net)
