Images of the Phantom's Revenge, a steel roller coaster located at Kennywood Park, in West Mifflin, near Pittsburgh.

The coaster was originally named The Steel Phantom and was built in 1991 by Arrow Dynamics. It was the first hypercoaster in the world to feature inversions. The Steel Phantom underwent extensive changes by Morgan Manufacturing, most notably the removal of all of its inversions. This modified coaster reopened for the 2001 season as the Phantom's Revenge. The Phantom's Revenge now has a top speed of 85 mph, putting it in a tie for 10th place of the world's fastest coasters. Due to the modifications, both Morgan and Arrow types of track are on the coaster.
