KENNYWOOD never said anything about making Millennium Force look like a baby.
We don't know all the details about the new coaster yet. Just that it's Morgan, nonlooping (no surprise once you see it's Morgan), and that ONE of the drops will be 230 feet. As for the rest, who knows.
Besides, bigger isn't necessarily better. I personally like Superman:Ride of Steel better than Millennium Force. MF is a great ride, but Superman is an airtime machine, and I find that more fun... For all we know Phantom's Revenge may be designed to be the biggest airtime beast we've ever seen.
I'm not let down. Even if this IS the largest drop, that doesn't make this a bad coaster.
Kennywood learned with the Steel Phantom that putting in a coaster for bragging rights ("world's fastest") doesn't last long. They don't have the SPACE to keep up with other parks in an arms race. So rather than go for something massive that'll just get beaten again, they should use the space they have effectively for a ride that'll be FUN, and hopefully REMAIN fun as the years go by...
Admittedly, I'm an idiot, dyslexic, and mostly illiterate, but where on the above posted website does it say any thing about MORGAN. I didnt see it. Maybe my glasses are dirty but nowhere does it mention a designer...help me out...
I don't see where it says it is a Morgan either. Where is this info coming from? I think alot of people were think giga so this is a disappointment. However, I think it will still be a great ride. I would like to see its layout and the specifics of the entire ride.
Why do most people think the coaster will be bad by only having a drop of 230 feet? Look at Superman Ride Of Steel at SFNE, it only has a drop of 225 feet but I have heard it's better than Millennium Force. I expect that this coaster will no doublty blow Millennium Force, or any steel coaster for that matter, AWAY! I personally think a dive down the ravine with only the lapbars will be amazing. Kennywood is doing what they should have done with Phantom in the first place.
