This classic wooden roller coaster offers a thrill that won’t disappoint. A fast ride with upwards acceleration and a “double out and back” layout has passengers flying through the air and catching a bird’s eye view of the rolling, tree-covered hills. Rising from the ashes of its history as the Rocket roller coaster built in 1947 in San Antonio Texas, the Phoenix was reborn at Knoebels in 1985. It has consistently been ranked as one of the top wooden coasters! While it may be named after a myth, the thrill of the Phoenix is REAL.
