      Cedar Point announced today that the Mantis roller coaster will soon be no more.

      The roller coaster, once billed as the tallest, fastest, steepest stand-up roller coaster in the world when it opened in 1996, is going to be shut down in just over a month.

      According to Cedar Point officials, the roller coaster has given more than 22-million rides.

      There is no word yet what, if anything, will be replacing the Mantis.

      For those wanting to give the Mantis one final ride, you have to do so before October 19 at 8 p.m.
