“The 3,365-foot track of Phantom’s Revenge in Kennywood brings visitors frighteningly close to another of the park’s coasters, Thunderbolt. A hair-raising highlight is the second drop – a 230-foot thriller at 85 miles per hour,” writes USA Today.
Beating out the Phantom’s Revenge for number one? SeaWorld’s Mako coaster.
Cedar Point’s Steel Vengeance also made an appearance on the list, coming in at number 6.
