This is probably my favorite hyper-coaster, maybe a 2nd to Magnum. I just had good ride and fun time right after one another on this machine. This is one of the few steel coasters Ive encountered (in a world filled with Vekoma SLCs, Arrow Loopers, Boomerangs, Intamin Impulses) that I really felt used the ingenuity of a wood coaster design and then enhanced upon it. Just couldnt stop screaming and laughing the whole ride.

The reprofiling of the Steel Phantom has given birth to one of the best coasters I have ever ridden. Prior to my visit, S:ROS at SFNE was my favorite all-time coaster of the 221 coasters I have ridden (and I am an enthusiast who prefers woodies). This ride gives S:ROS (SFNE) the closest competition of any other coaster out there. It retains the one-two punch of Steel Phantom’s glorious first two drops. Then the redesign kicks in taking riders on a rollicking, helice and bunny hill laden run. It uses the terrain beautifully – AND NOT A SINGLE TRIM BRAKE ON IT. The trains are wide, two seat across, and have no headrests to obstruct the view. They employ a unique lap bar and are perfectly designed for the ride this coaster delivers. I love height and speed in my coaster, but, more than anything else, I like fun. This ride is more fun than I’ve had in a long time on a coaster and jumps to the top of my personal top ten list in every category. Just amazing!

Phantoms Revenge is easily my favorite hyper. I love the neat hyper-twister design and its a much smoother/better ride than Steel Phantom was. The first drop rocks and the 2nd drop through Thunderbolt is my number 1 favorite drop anywhere!! The speed is great and it finishes with tremendous airtime! A MUST-RIDE for sure.

This is my least favorite hyper coaster that Ive ever ridden. Many other people have mentioned that it hurts. They are right, it slams you on your seat a couple of times near the end. This is what really brought its score down. However, I gave it a couple extra points because I really like how its the second drop thats the biggest, not the 1st.

Phantoms Revenge is a masterpiece of renovation, combining old and new in a TRULY unique layout AND it has one of the best uses of terrain ANYWHERE. In an age when so many coasters are cloned, and others are torn down completely, its great to ride something so different, exciting and fun. Sometimes short and sweet is a good thing!

I wish I could have had a chance to ride the original but the work done on this new version was awesome! Fun drops and wildly wicked sums up this ride.

I wasnt on the original but this didnt do it for me. The first to drops did nothing for my senses and the rest of the ride although smooth seemed very contrived.

This is a fun ride, and a huge improvement over Steel Phantom. I like the lap bar designs, they are very cofortable and allow you to actually feel the bunny hops near the end. The ride however is too short, it really doesnt use all of the great speed that it produces.

This is my favorite hyper besides Apollos Chariot..it is soo fun..the first drop is intense and I can actually feel the Gs..the 230 ft drop is fast and fun and the bunny hops are crazy..be careful on them though..they will make sure you get back down on ur seat after the airtime..in all a great ride
