WEST MIFFLIN, PA
Last week, Kennywood Park asked fans to choose a color for the tracks of its popular coaster — Petrifying Purple or Terrifying Teal. In a prime example of democracy in action, the park announced Friday that the nearly-10,000 voters made their preference “overwhelmingly clear:” Phantom’s Revenge will be painted “Petrifying Purple” after this year’s season ends on Sept. 25. This marks the roller coaster’s first new paint job in 20 years.
The next ride to receive a well-deserved facelift will be the Thunderbolt.
