Reader reviews of The Phoenix
This ACE certified Woodie has the most airtime I have ever experience on a Wooden Rollercoaster. It is often on the 10 best lists and deserves it ranking amoung my favorite woodies too. This is the kind of rollercoaster where you can have a completely different ride depending where you sit. I loved sitting in the front but the back has its moments too, be it a little rougher back there. This would be an excellent icebreaker for young children that are learning about rollercoasters. I cannot wait for my kid to be 42 inches tall! - Elizabeth Gray
This is the best coaster I've ever ridden... It's completely amazing and has a lot of -Gs! The ride is much smoother than the Twister and I highly recommend this ride. - Mike Mills
