Where are we going today?

Here's a quiz! What was founded in 1898, was designated a National Historic Landmark, and has a mix of great traditional and modern rides and coasters? Kennywood of course!

Kennywood is one of the oldest, and most loved amusement parks in the entire country! For over 110 years this family friendly attraction has enthralled and excited families of all ages.  They started out with those classic amusements such as the carousel, and then developed over the years to include wooden coasters, and then those popular steel looping ones!

What started as a trolley park turned into something much more, and fun fact - still contains two major buildings from 1898 - the Carousel pavilion and a restaurant. So you can have historic fun at the same time as the family fun!

"What about the attractions?" we hear you ask! There are certainly plenty to choose from! You can swing around and around with your legs dangling, or you can enjoy the classic 1921 Jack Rabbit coaster that has been a family favorite!

have you ever been 146 feet in the air with 40 others are you experience weightlessness? Just jump on the Black Widow then you will! From pirate ships, to swinging in harnesses, to adventures in the dark, if you love thrill rides you will certainly have plenty to choose from at Kennywood!

Kennywood isn't just for the super brave though! They have a host of fun family and kids rides perfect for all ages. From trains, cars, merry-go-rounds, to Noah's Ark, kids will have their own mini thrills with age appropriate rides.

We haven't started to tell you about the water rides! Perfect to cool off, you can take on rapids, plunges, and that iconic Log Jammer!

There is almost TOO much family fun to be had at Kennywood!

    My family visited Kennywood Park on 8/9/14. I entered the park interested in purchasing season passes and exited being grateful that the 2014/2015 ones were not yet available. The general attitudes of the employees were DEPLORABLE! The entire day only ONE person said "thank you for riding...". Seemed to me that they were more interested in each other or their cell phones than in engaging the public. They were VERY mechanical and disinterested in what they were doing. For the money you spend I expect a MUCH better overall experience. Very...Read More

    My wife and I haven't been to Kennywood for several years. We went recently and were greatly disappointed with our visit. It is quite obvious that the new owners, Parques Reunidos of Madrid, Spain is exerting its influence. The Kennywood that we knew and loved over the years was always very customer service focused with plenty of employees to make each visit enjoyable. It is clear that the new owners value profitability over customer service and have greatly reduced the staff. Long lines at each concession stand where only a couple of employees...Read More

For the money you spend I expect a MUCH better overall experience. Very low class atmosphere for a very high price. Growing up I went to Kennywood often and I was extremely disappointed in how much it has gone downhill since my last visit many years ago.

My wife and I haven't been to Kennywood for several years. We went recently and were greatly disappointed with our visit. It is quite obvious that the new owners, Parques Reunidos of Madrid, Spain is exerting its influence. The Kennywood that we knew and loved over the years was always very customer service focused with plenty of employees to make each visit enjoyable. It is clear that the new owners value profitability over customer service and have greatly reduced the staff. Long lines at each concession stand where only a couple of employees were expected to serve dozens of people. From the infamous Potato Patch where you could expect to be served within 10 -15 minutes on the busiest of days in years past, you now have to wait up to an hour. In the cafeteria, after you get your meal selection, you have to wait while a single employee works to give every customer their beverages (again standing in line). We walked the entire park and every concession stand was the same, long lines and limited employees. There also used to be parking lot attendants to help with directing traffic in and out, but no more. And don't get me started on the prices. Food in the park was always reasonably priced, but you guessed it, NO MORE. A 6" hoagie and two small drinks, over $15. I pity families with small children that now have to endure this park. It's a shame that this once locally owned, privately run park is now in the hands of a money-grubbing European enterprise.
