New for the 2015 season, Cedar Point transformed their notoriously painful stand-up coaster, Mantis, into a floorless experience. During my trip to Cedar Point last week, I was eager to try out the supposedly much smoother coaster.
Ever since Carowinds announced their record-breaking Giga Coaster last fall, I've been anticipating its opening. Finally, I made it to the park last week to check it out. Believe me, I "felt the sting."
Millennium Force has been placed at the top of enthusiasts' rankings more than once. It's even been voted the number one steel roller coaster in the world by Amusement Today nine years since it opened in 2000! But is it really that amazing, or is it overrated? I, for one, had to find out.
