Best little amusement park!.
I had never even heard of Kennywood until about a week ago when my boyfriend told me that we're going spend the weekend in PA going to Hershey Park and then Kennywood. We're from the Detroit area, so I wasn't sure if the drive would be entirely worth it. Although Kennywood is small, it has a lot of charm. I would recommend this place to anyone (and I probably will!). I was pleasantly surprised at how smoothly the roller coasters run and how thrilling they are to ride. My favorite would have to be the Thunderbolt. Also, Noah's Arc is a MUST. Its the most fun I've ever had in a fun house type setting. The people who run the park are very nice, and efficient. The rides also load relatively fast- even if the line LOOKS long, it generally wasn't a very long wait.
Oh, and don't leave before trying the bacon cheddar fries from the potato patch!!!!!
Best place to spend summer. This is a place that you simply MUST go to. Even though Cedar Point or Six Flags might have bigger, faster rollercoasters and more rides, Kennywood somehow captures your heart by some unknown force. I have been going my whole life, and i've seen the park grow and change, but still keep that family feeling alive. They have 3 wooden rollercoasters that are historic landmarks, which are Jackrabbit, Racer, and Thunderbolt. The Racer is the only single tracked racing coaster in America, and all of these coasters have been standing for at least 40 years or more. Other rides have historic backgrounds too. "Auto Race", is the only ride left of it's kind, and the Kennywood Railroad offers a tour of Kennywood through the years. But while maintaining that historic, family feeling, they also have new age rides that can thrill all types of thrill seekers. The Phantom's Revenge, boasts a 160 foot tall first hill, and a second hills of 230 feet, bringing riders to 82 mph. Pitt Fall, a 250 foot tall freefall ride, drops riders to a free falling speed of 65 mph. and plenty other rides reside at this park to get your heart racing. The food here is amazing, with the Potato Patch having some of the best fries nationwide, along with funnel cakes, corn dogs, and affordable drinks. If you are ever in Pittsburgh, you have to visit Kennywood. You will want to come back year after year. If you are from Pittsburgh, you already know what I'm talking about. Kennywood 4ever!!!
Best Place to take the kids. Well im only 19 and i have been going to kennywood since i was little. I love going to kennywood. for about 9 years in a row my family and i went to kennywood as a family tradition. Well one year we got kicked out but it was our own stupidity but anyways if you want to feel like a young person again you will go to kennywood. Its expensive but its worth going. Kennywood made me decide to become Amusement Park Authestisant (its spelled wrong i know). So once I am done with my college thats what I want to do. I love going watching the people and seeing old friends who i haven't seen in awhile. I hope this year my family and I will go once again. I love being a kid at kennywood. So try riding the "green ride" which is the Phantom's Revenage if you are afraid of roller coasters thats what got my roommate over that fear. So go to Kennywood this summer!!!!
The Best Amusement Park in the World.. I have been to countless amusement parks around the world. From america and canada to europe, and the middle east last month (Qatar). I have never experienced a better amusement park anywhere. The atmosphere Kennywood is more magical than Disney World. Truthfully. Kennywood has some of the best riddes anywhere. The Phantom rocks, the Racers are the only single track racing coaster left, the double dip of the Jack Rabbit, and, well, everything about the THUNDERBOLT (the best ride anywhere, period) The food by itself is worth the trip. PATATO PATCH FRIES are the best anywhere. I remember going with my grandmother to the park and hearing her stories of her favorite rides. Also of where she met my grandfather. I had my first kiss in Kennywood. The park is the cleanest I've ever been too as well. Being away from Pa, it brings tears of joy to my eye to think of Kennywood and all the fond memories that it has brought to me through the years. I truley miss Kennywood. THE WORLD'S FINEST TRADITIONAL AMUSEMENT PARK. Six flags and Cedar Point are small potatoes that quiver in the shadow of this small Pennsylvania park. Long Live Kennywood!
Potato Patch french fries, Funnel cakes, and corn dogs!!!! Must have foods!!. I've lived in Pittsburgh my whole entire life. Kennywood is a huge part in it. It really doesn't matter how old you are because there seems to be something for everyone to do. When you are a little kid they have a place in the park JUST FOR YOU! When you are a little older you have bigger and better rides like the Thunderbolt which is still my personal favorite even thought the phantoms revenge is right up there with it (although I'm still a little mad they took the loops out) plus there is an arcade you can visit while you're trying to settle your stomach after all the coaster riding you do. They have nice picnic areas for the older crowd that just like to hang out with their family and friends all day. I've gone to Kennywood since I was a child and now I have children of my own that will start the process all over again. I forgot to mention not only are they open in the summer but they reopen around Halloween!!!! Another great time to go. VISIT HAUNTED KENNYWOOD YOU WON'T REGRET IT!!!! It's worth the trip and it's reasonable.
Kennywood Extreme!. Kennywood has its up's and its down's but mainly up's. Kennywood is a must for anyone who enjoys a old fashioned amusement park. Not only is Kennywood one of america's finest traditional amusement parks, it is a tradition for many families in the U.S. I go to Kennywood two times a year at least and every year there is something new offered. Just going to the park and walking around will give you a smile on your face when you walk through the tunnel at the end of the day. The scenery is amazing with alot of flowers and trees. The rides are very unique, you will never ride a rollercoaster similar to any of Kennywoods. I highly recommend this park to anyone!!!
A True Born Kennywood-ee. I have grown up about 35 minutes outside of Pittsburgh, and going to Kennywood has been one of the many traditions my family has had every summer. It is truly a wonderful place. I've been to many other amusement parks, but nothing like Kennywood. It is very clean, and the staff is friendly. It's never overly crowded, and there is enough to do, but not too much where you feel like you cant do everything you want to do in one day. There is lots of shady areas, and seating available thoughout the park. (oh, and the french fries are excellent!) It also has a childrens area, and a trolly that my grandmother always enjoys. Its a great place to visit, that always meets my expectations every year.
This is a good regional admusement park. But I would not put them in the same field as Cedar Point or Disney. My family and I made special vacation plans to stop last week.
We had planned on spending 2 days but after 4 hours there we left and didn't come back. The park is very small park with a total of 36 rides. I don't know why other people would highly recommand this park.
By Far The BEST Place to go!!!. I used to go to Kennywood at least 4 times a year. It was nothing for me to drive from Johnstown and head on down to Pittsburgh! For anyone who hasn't visited Kennywood yet and plan to do so...you have to get the Potato Patch Fries!! It's a must. And ride each rollercoaster at least 3 times before you leave! This park is super clean too! Always a bonus!! I just absolutely love Kennywood.
