Roughness, low ridership, time for a new ride, (minor lack of space).

Steel Phantom was a great ride but it was also very rough and began to lose it's popularity after almost 10 years of operation. Kennywood has to make the most of it's limited space so they decided to remove most of the Steel Phantom to make way for Phantom's Revenge.

And apparently, it's one of the best moves the park has ever made. It gets great reviews (I'm talking "New #1"-calibur reviews) and seems to be a hit with the general public.

But I still haven't ridden it! UGH!

Lack of space available at Kennywood.
A small price for the park to refurbish the old coaster than build a brand new one.

Yeah, the PR reviews have been the most positive of all the steel coasters this year.

To be honest with you, Grant, I've heard very few negative reviews, and the ones that I have heard have been from people who live in Pittsburgh...

I live about an hour away from the park, and PR is better than Magnum for sure. It doesn't quite get Millie, but it's close :)
