Point of View

More Information

Opened as Mantis in 1996; transformed into Rougarou for the 2015 season. Received a new paint scheme and new floorless trains.

Originally, Mantis had three trains in operation, but longer load times caused the trains to stack on the final brake run, and so the park reduced operation to only two trains.
