Riders escorted off Phantom's Revenge at Kennywood



WEST MIFFLIN, Pa. - Riders were escorted off Phantom’s Revenge at Kennywood Tuesday.

Park officials said one of the trains got a new pair of breaks Tuesday morning.

According to officials, the train rode the full course of the ride and stopped as it was supposed to when it got to the stop area.

Instead of rolling forward, the train remained stopped, so the ride’s conductor made the decision to manually stop a train as it was headed up the ride.

“We helped them out of the train and loaded them onto a staircase which runs parallel to the track.  We escorted them down one at a time to the ground level,” said Kennywood spokesperson Jeff Filicko.

The ride is up and running again.
