Cedar Point announces Rougarou floorless makeover for Mantis in 2015



After many coaster fans were disappointed that Cedar Point would not be renaming a coaster after LeBron James for 2015, the park has finally spilled the beans on its Mantis plans for 2015 after announcing that the ride will be closing on October 19.

Mantis will be renamed to Rougarou, which is described as a “a creature with a human body and the head of a wolf or dog, similar to the werewolf.”

The video released on YouTube shows Mantis being transformed into the new floorless design with a new paint scheme.

The “Coaster Campout” event earlier this summer welcomed guests to “Camp Rou.” I guess this was indeed a tease!
