Duh?! The Riddler's Revenge is far superior than Mantis. I mean it's taller, faster, has a larger first drop, has more inversions, and it's longer. The coaster is awesome! It still claims the record for the world's tallest, fastest, and longest stand-up coaster. It also features more inversions than any stand-up coaster out there! The coaster is super smooth. I just love it! It's one of the most awesome coaster out there! The Riddler's Revenge rocks!

Mantis, but I also haven't been on Riddler before. Chang is up there.

The Riddler's Revenge is smoother and exerts less excessive Gs on rider's legs. Plus, everything everybody else said; its longer, taller, faster, loopier, better themed, so on so on...

Riddlers revenge definately :cool:

The best stand up coaster is riddlers revenge.

03-10-2003, 03:11 PM
I love the G's in the legs on Mantis. It makes you more of a man for riding it. The (good) pain/intensity is unlike any other coaster I've ridden. However, RR is a better ride. So yes, I choose RR.

Mantis is the best stand up I've been on. I love how twisted and tight the layout is. Riddlers Revenge looks to spread out to contain those quick turns and direction changes like Mantis. That is why I didn't like Chang as much as Mantis.

Nice resurecting a 2 year old thread there guys! :)

But as to which is better, Riddler's Revenge, and it's not even a close contest. Mantis is a pile- one of only 4 or 5 coasters I've ever been on with a trim ON THE FIRST DROP!! Stunk all over the place. Riddler's on the other hand is a great coaster!

03-11-2003, 01:50 PM
i've only been on mantis, but i will say RR looks more fun. however come on!! some of you people say its better cause its taller, faster, and has more inversions! that doesn't make a great coaster. IMO the georgia scorcher is by far the best stand-up out there, and far superior then a lot of sit-down loopers, and inverted coasters too.

Riddler's Revenge was on the TV here in the UK the other night with none other than Tom Zeliff riding in the front row!!

I've never been on either but, for what it's worth, RR looks the best by far.

03-11-2003, 02:49 PM
As a huge CP fan, even I have to admit RR is far superior.

Not because of size (like size means anything), or theming, or whatever - it is simply a much better ride.

03-11-2003, 04:04 PM
Riddler's Revenge was much better that Mantis IMO. It's a lot smoother, I found Mantis to be a headbanger.

EDIT: I'm stupid, Mantis has an inclined loop too.:o

03-11-2003, 06:10 PM
I think Mantis has an inclined loop too.

As far as my vote, I have only been on GA Scorcher (which happens to be one helluva ride), but I must admit that judging by looks and reviews, Riddler's Revenge is the much much much better ride.

dude, what are you thinking! Of course its going to be Riddlers revenge, that thing is THE bomb!

03-13-2003, 05:43 PM
Riddler's Revenge

1) its smoother
2) better layout
3) Mantis puts too many G's on the legs

03-13-2003, 10:41 PM
This one is no contest, Riddler squashes the bug.

03-14-2003, 06:20 PM
Riddler's Revenge easily wins this battle!

03-14-2003, 08:17 PM
