I remember reading a few years ago, back in 2018 or 2019, about Deno's wanting to open a proper-size coaster for their 100th anniversary last year, and given their cramped location and presumably minimalist budget, I wasn't expecting anything more than a relocated Zyklon or Windstorm at best. But when Phoenix was announced, I was shocked! These Vekoma SFCs are always great additions for small parks, and I'd love to see more custom layouts!
Took another ride on my motorcycle to Coney Island yesterday. Track work is complete and the station concrete pour is taking place this weekend. Most of these photos were taken from the walkway that will cut underneath the coaster, but will likely have netting over it once the ride opens. Love the funky turnaround that's gone up since my last visit (whatever it's called) and the tons of twisty bits!
Here's the video I filmed that includes plenty of drone footage in addition to the site walk through:
