Phantom's Revenge goes vertical

Posted Friday, March 9, 2001 8:39 PM | Contributed by kpjb

Friday, at 8:30 a.m., the first piece of new track was laid in place on Phantom's Revenge. Another two pieces followed, making up about two-thirds of the second and largest drop. It looks like things are really moving along now, although it looks like there is a whole lot of track that has yet to arrive at the park.

Why shouldn't they post without photos? I find the information interesting even without them, and I'm sure that we will get some soon.

There's nothing wrong with posting the info w/o photos.

I took a spin by KP this morning. The have added track! Previously the coaster stopped just past the top of the second hill. Now you can no longer see the end. It appears to go all the way to the bottom - but I can't be sure about that. Supposedly there was an article in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette earlier this week about the new coaster but I have not been able to locate - in print or on the web. Anyone know anything about the article?

How far is Kennywood from Pittsburgh? Not far I hope My mom bought a Town house in Pittsburgh(4 work)

But I was wondering about Phantom I thought it was mostly finished because nobody was posting about it
