    Theming Nice surprise! Intensity

    This is a great family launch coaster and a great fit for the park. The layout, including the launch, was not very forceful, but that was to be expected. One thing that stood out is the "open-air" feeling to the seating position, which adds to the fun factor. The theming around the launch area is nice, and expected for SeaWorld Standards. This is a solid addition to the lineup.

    Discomfort Tear it down! Layout

    Mantis offers the same intensely painful sensation in my legs that I get on all stand-ups, though it was slightly less, so I rank it above the others I've ridden. The layout is also less exciting compared to Riddler's Revenge, though it's hard to focus on that when your legs feel like they are being trampled by a herd of elephants. Thank God they changed this into a floorless, and I cannot wait to experience the difference.

    First Drop Duration Dead spots

    When I rode this back in 2014, I did not think it was especially bad. I enjoyed it in the same way I enjoy other old wood coasters such as the defunct Colossus at Magic Mountain. No there was not any airtime, yes the coaster crawled around the turns, and yes the coaster rattled, but that is like most old wooden coasters. The drops were fun because of the massive scale of this coaster, and I did not find the rattle to be overly uncomfortable. Other woodies like Grizzly at CGA are much worse. It's awesome that Mean Streak has been converted into a top tier RMC, but I am not going to say this was a terrible ride in its original form.

    Pace Layout Ejectors Reliability

    Twisted Colossus is an amazing coaster with a long but fast paced layout. All the hills provide intense airtime, the inversions are whippy, so it is everything you expect from an RMC. Even when it is not dueling, the ride is fantastic, and a dueling ride is a cherry on top. However, no one should ignore the fact that this ride is supposed to duel every time and it doesn't. When I include "Reliability" as a Con, I am referring to its dueling and not so much the maintenance aspect. My only major complaint is the inconsistency of dueling. Often the trains are only 10-15 seconds away from dueling, so it seems like only a minor programming change is needed. I would even go as far to say I would wait longer in line for slower operations as long as it is always duels. Even with this issue, it is still #1 at the park for me.

    Capacity Fun Too short

    I love Indoor coasters with theming like this. This ride is complete with onboard audio and some birds eveywhere. Great ride for the whole family and for an not Dutch person it's very hidden and you can easily miss it.

    Theming Location Dead spots

    This is a typical Efteling ride. It's a storytelling boat ride with a water coaster section on it. Efteling spent many euro's to make this a beautifull ride with 3 kind of attractions in one. A dark ride, walkthrough and a coaster. The coaster is the most dissapointing part of the ride.

    Inversions Smoothness Theming

    The first coaster of Efteling was a Vekoma double loop corkscrew and it was at that time a terrifying rollercoaster. Many years later and a referbishment on the track it's the smoothest wat i've done. But the rest of this park is beautifull themed to fairy's and this is just a coaster without music and thats to bad.

    Theming Fun Pointless

    It's a good ride with a lovely soundtrack what i love from the Efteling. But the most powered coasters that i've done had interactions with other attractions or a tunnel with theming halfway the ride. But for kids this is awesome and also the queuline.

    Fun

    Rode this many times but it is not the best GCI i did. In fact the best one i did is an hour drive from here in the Netherland. But this coaster is unique for Holland for the dualing effect and that is nice. Good coaster for the whole family.
