Mantis was designed and built by Bolliger & Mabillard. For its first two decades of operation, it was a Stand-Up coaster. Like all B&M Stand-Up coasters, the trains had space for four people in each row. With eight cars in a train and three trains, Mantis had an impressive rider capacity of nearly 2,000 people an hour. During its later years of operating as a Stand-Up coaster, the ride only operated with two trains.
Rougarou's tallest hill is 145 feet tall, which is about the height of Millennium Force's third hill in the background.
This train is about to enter the Inclined Loop, the third of the ride's four inversions.
