Etymology:Initially, Mantis was to be named "Banshee".  In Irish folklore, a banshee is a female spirit whose wail was said to foretell a death in the family. After this definition was printed in a local newspaper, the "Banshee" name was dropped in favor of "Mantis".  The original "Banshee" logo would later come to be that of Dorney Park's Steel Force.
