This, believe it or not, was my first inverted swinging ship ride. It wasnt what it could have been, but nontheless, a fun ride. What I feel hurts the ride the most, though, is the restraints. You dont get as good of a hanging feeling when upside down.

I really liked this ride, as you got to stay inverted for long periods of time.

Great ship ride, if you dont get stuck at the top for more than 5 seconds at a time. I had that happened to me and I was laughing for hours. And the lapbars! boy when they come down you HAVE to push back on them so youre not gasping for air 100 feet above the ground upside down! Try to make the OTSR a little out from your body so you have some room to breathe. lol.

I dont know what I was thinking putting this ride in my top 10. Im obviously too old to enjoy this ride now, its pure torture. All the blood rushing to my head is not quite the sensation I remember, the restraints are uncomfortable, and I had a hard time breathing.

I Actually enjoyed this ride, I just dont suggest riding it in the rain, thats when it really does suck. I got a huge kick out of this ride when your upside down and starring at people on the ground from a whole new light.

It is just like any other thrill ride out there it gets the job done. It doesnt compete with any of the new age things but it is still ok if there is no line and you need a rush.

BGT does not have this ride set on a very intense program, so you get a little floaty sensation, but not any really huge swings. Its basically an okay pirate ship, so there are more exciting things at this park.

Its an okay swinging boat. Its nothing special, because its the same thing that they have in parks all over. The pressure of the lapbars is a little much but I would rather have some pressure than falling out of the ride. My only wish would be that they would add some more themeing to these rides. They could put a warehouse around the boat or something, and show some movies with effects, and actually have a story instead of just swinging around over and over again.

The Phoenix is a pendulum falt ride.It is fun, rerideable, it has a large capacity, and a long duration.
