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.
A "Rougarou" is a werewolf-like creature in French folklore.


For the 2015 season the Mantis was given new trains and a new name, turning the former stand up roller coaster into a floorless roller coaster.
The Mantis had a theoretical hourly capacity of 1800 riders per hour. When the ride was changed from the Mantis to Rougarou, the dispatch logic changed. Previously during three train operation a train could be released when the prior cleared the lift. As Rougarou, a train is not released until the prior reaches the bottom of the dive loop. This change makes the Rougarou's capacity something less than it was as Mantis.
The model above being listed as "Stand-Up Coaster" is intentional. rcdb make/model logic is based on how the ride was originally built. In contrast, the design field does reflect modifications made later on.
