Phoenix is an excellent roller coaster in Thrill Rides and one of the best attractions at Knoebels. The minimum height to ride is 42 inches.
A Herb Schmeck (Philadelphia Toboggan Company) wooden roller coaster built as the Rocket in San Antonio, Texas and moved to Knoebels in 1985. Although the first drop is only 78 feet tall, the ride is extraordinary for its airtime. Knoebels does a very nice job maintaining this jewel of a coaster, which also features an antique car ride path through its supports.
