    I'm just going to go out and say you're not going to find a single person here who got to ride Phoenix when it was still the Rocket in San Antonio.
    If you really wanted to dig.......while RRC is rather useless now, it is a pretty fantastic time machine.

    https://groups.google.com/forum/m/#!forum/rec.roller-coaster just search "Playland Rocket". It returned some results but Google Groups doesn't let you copy and paste search links.

    Thanks for the link. I will explore.

    However, I was asking about Phoenix at Knoebels and the coaster called Coaster at PNE Playland in Vancouver. I have often heard these two coasters called similar air-filled woodies, and I was curious about the opinions of those who've ridden both.

    Ah, since Phoenix came from a park also named Playland, I assumed you wanted a comparison of people who rode it in both places. My bad.

    So, is there no one here who's been on both these rides?

    I shan't leave this thread until you report back. ;)
    I am interested in people's views on this, so I really would appreciate it if you do remember to drop a note in here then.
