Kennywood is America’s Finest Traditional Amusement Park! Located just outside Pittsburgh, Kennywood offers a unique mix of classic rides and modern thrills, including six roller coasters, a 14-ride Kiddieland, and more!


America's Favorite Traditional Amusement Park since 1898, Kennywood continues to delight each and every guest with 31 major rides, including three wooden coasters, two steel coasters including Phantom's Revenge and Skyrocket, water rides, spinning rides, hi-speed rides for thrill seekers, Kid-sized rides for tiny daredevils, and relaxing rides for those who simply want to enjoy the splendor of a truly inviting venue. Combining the best of the old with the best of the new, guests will find the original, 110-year- old carousel pavilion, as well as state-of-the-art attractions like Phantom'sRevenge, Skyrocket, and Ghostwood Estate. In 2012, the new thrilling Black Widow ride features counterclockwise rotation and pendulum motions that create a variety of different sensations, depending on a rider's specific position. Whether you're celebrating a birthday, having a party, hosting a company picnic or family reunion, Kennywood has large and inviting private party areas with delicious meal options to please even the pickiest eaters.


We arrived at opening on a Sunday and got to experience it all!  The line wait was minimal at the beginning of the day and by afternoon, the wait got longer on one side of the park. So I suggest getting there early to bang out the rides you really want!  Surprisingly the Phantom Coaster and  SwingShot barely had waits all day, so they family rode those multiple times and loved it!  I tell you Sundays at opening time is the best time, at least twice my kids were the only ones on rides.   I was truly amazed that the kids had no fear and actually rode everything they were tall enough for!
This year was my son's first year he was over 48 inches.  It was a big deal for him, he could ride the bigger rides!   There was only a couple he was not able to, but that gave little man and mommy some time!  I highly suggest if you are unsure of your child's height to get them measured and stamped.  It makes it so much easier!

Each time we hit Kennywood, we try something different for our food options.  This time around, Johnny Rockets was open and of course we had to hit it.  We were famished, so alas no pictures.  My son had the chicken tenders, while the rest of us had burgers.   It could of been from all the walking, heat, etc...  but we were starving and scarfed them down.  They were great!  Also as a family snack, we had to hit the Patch over by Noah's Ark.  Those are some amazing spuds and no wonder so many folks hit it!


Kennywood’s timeless charm has created legions of FANATIC supporters and unforgettable memories every summer since its opening in 1898!
