The Steel Phantom without Brakes?

Monday, August 7, 2000 12:09 PM
I was at Kennywood on Sunday to ride the steel phantom one last time. Most awazing ride I have had on this coaster. It really feels like they are running with no brakes. The drop down into the ravine was so intense. And the trim that usually happens as you are entering the vert loop wasn't on at all.

the new ride (aero 360) is amazing. it needs to run a little longer though otherwise truly a great ride.

I have to disagree. I was at Kennywood on Sunday as well and the trims before the loop were indeed on. However, the rest of the course was taken at speeds that seemed a little too fast for an Arrow corkscrew train. I have to wonder if they were on lightly or the rain had an effect on the train.

During the ERT for Phantom the trims were most defintley off but during the day they were on. When I rode it seemed much faster than Millennium Force.

Funny, I rode the Phantom 4 times during the ERT, and the trims before the loop certainly seemed to be kicking on (lightly, but they were there) to me.
