malem Posted May 15, 2014 Share Posted May 15, 2014 The operator at Mantis switched to the ride's original name in his spiel as soon as he saw my Banshee shirt from Kings Island. Can you go into more detail about what you mean? Banshee was the original name for Mantis at Cedar Point. The name was changed before the ride opened, allegedly because of a negative public reaction to using the name of a spirit connected with death. I was wearing a shirt with the logo of Kings Island's Banshee. When the ride operator saw me getting ready to disrespect his ride in the front row, he started using "Banshee" instead of "Mantis" in his spiel. (eg. "Enjoy your ride on Banshee") 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
