Still the only coaster I fear for my life on.
Backseat ride :)
It's almost like they didn't know if the reprofiling would work, so they left the old track there in case they had to switch it back.
How come no one ever INCREASES the size of the drop? ;)
Wasn't Hercules a modification of the orriginal coaster and took the lift, Put a left hand turn and dropped it to the lake?
Steel Phantoms drop was increased ten feet for PR. *** Edited 7/25/2008 8:16:19 PM UTC by Charles Nungester***

Thunderbolt's first drop was increased by about 3 feet due to clearance issues when Phantom's Revenge was built. So there. ;)
I thought Hercules was new all together.
I actually watched a video of the Steel Phantom the other day, and I just don't remember it being as rough as it was in the video. I then watched a video of Phantom's Revenge and some of the bunny hops look very painful (like Mamba's double up).
You're asking me? I won't go to that park!

Can someone verify?
And yes, Cyclone is the lick. :)
Long live the Big Bad Wolf
To me it also seems cheesy that they would put in the new track and not get rid of the old.
