If you hop on over to Kennywood Boulevard ( ) Lynch & Joe has posted some of my photos taken from across the river. You can see, judging by the area of land that has been cleared, that giant helix will be big!! Also, you have to realize that coming off the 230 ft. second drop and approaching speeds of 80+ mph, you almost need to have a large turn-around. Otherwise, the pull-out will be a killer!

Phantom's Revenge will be done in time, I'm tired of everyone saying it isn't. Keep in mind that a big part of the coaster is already built. The footers are just about done and vertical construction should start very soon, see Kennywood Boulevard for details.

Not only that, but from what I've gathered, the assembly will mostly be bolted together, rather than welded. If that's the case, Phantom's Revenge is going to go up QUICK, like a giant Erector set.

I'm not CONVINCED that it'll be ready for opening day, but I'm still hopeful.

I don't think we have anything to worry about. If you don't belive go check out the X-Flight pictures. That thing's growing like a weed.
