Welcome to Kennywood

This park has an amazing collection of flat rides.  This is the Bayern Kurve which is sort of a powered roller coaster


Volcano - check out the cool facade that it pops out of

Cosmic Chaos

Kangaroo - this is the ONLY ride of its type left in the world


Swing Shot

Wave Swinger

The Whip

The Exterminator is an indoor themed spinning mouse coaster.  This thing is top notch.

Pittsburg Plunge

Musik Express


Noah's Ark - this is the only one of its kind in America.  This is an awesome walk through fun house that is a "must experience" when you visit the park

Ghostwood Estate (this is your typical Sally ride Boo Blasters ride)

Auto Race is another antique ride at the park

Honestly there's nothing else like it out there in the states.  Another "must ride"

Aero 360 - have to love the Kennywood Arrow theme of the ride

The park's grand Merry-Go-Round

Another antique ride is the Old Mill which is currently themed to Garfield's Nightmare

This is a relaxing float trip in a boat (as scene in the lower left of the photo) through a very long indoor tunnel past show scenes.

The park has some amazing roller coasters too - including the Phantom's Revenge

This hypercoaster towers over the park

The more wild of the park's historic wooden coasters is the Thunderbolt

The RACER is the park's racing wooden coaster

The interesting fact about this coaster is that it is one big loop.  Your train will exit one side of the station and enter back on the other side of the station.

The final historic wooden coaster at the park, is also the oldest - the Jack Rabbit

The Jack Rabbit is best known for its double down, which you can see the train navigating here.  That particular element creates an insane amount of airtime.

Coming soon to the park is another steel looping coaster known as the Steel Curtain

While it was testing when we visited, it was not quite ready for its public debut.  I guess we'll have to catch it next time we are in the area.

This is a beautiful historic park, and always a fun stop when in the Pittsburgh area.
