Yeah...the design and layout looks really crappy..but it's one heck of a ride...the ejector airtime is like no other coaster out there.

It's such a great ride. I'm longing to get back there and ride it again later this year.

PR may not look like much to some people but it was an amazing ride and a nice improvement over the old Phantom (of which I was a fan) The airtime is brutal and the view is as nice as ever. Another winner for one of the best traditional parks around IMO.

The design and layout looks crappy? Would you prefer a boring out and back hyper on flat land instead? I think PR's layout is as interesting as they come. For those who haven't ridden it yet, it may look short, but it never lets up during that amount of time. All I can say is get out and ride it, you'll be surprised.

I'm sure they'll be surprised too,Cernelli. Not many coasters have a second drop that is much higher than the first. I've never ridden it but what a rush it must be. I'm going to New York soon. Hummmm....how long is the drive to Kennywood from there, anyone know? Hope I have time though. On my agenda already are Nitro and S:RoS. I think I'll make it.

Yeah, me and a lot of other people I'm sure when they first saw the layout, they thought it could have been better. Compared to layouts of other coasters, it didn't look intense enough, but hey, once I rode it, it surprised me and I think it's a great layout, now that I've been on it. Never judge a coaster on its layout, because I did at first but learned that it is one heck of a ride.

For a coaster that does around 85mph they need more off the second drop. One turn around didn't excite me that much. I've ridden better products from Dana. Wild Thing is my favorate from him. I wish we still had the old Ron Toomer creation, Steel Phantom! It remains number 3 on my looping list and Number two on my overall (Next to the Orient Express of course).
