Kennywood's Open :).
For those of you that grew up anywhere near Pittsburgh you know what it means when someone looks at you and says Kennywoods Open (your zipper is open).
I went to Kennywood Park countless times growing up. I now live in New Mexico. Ive been to parks all over and have never been to one with the same charm. I would not say that Kennywood Park alone is worth round trip tickets for the whole family. However, if you are anywhere near the area or you are an amusement park enthusiast you should make it a point to visit there. You will see why there are so many sentimental reviews written about the place. It is a place frozen in time but with some new things mixed in.
Memories, past, present and future!. I, too, have alot of memories of Kennywood. And though I now live in Seattle, Wa, I have taken my daughter there and hope to someday take my grandkids, too.
Love Kennywood!. I grew up in Western PA and lvoed going to Kennywood. Now I live 900 miles away and have children of my own and we make the trip every summer to Pittsburgh and we have to go to Kennywood. even for those that don't ride, the food is great and it is a great place to relax and people watch. We took my children to a Mexican vacation last summer and all they could talk about was making sure that they would not miss Kennywood. It is a great park. Great for the family!
Home Sweet Home.
Having lived in Houston, Tx for the past 15 years, I go home to PA every other year with my daughter. Her first roller coaster was the Jack Rabbit, as was mine. Most of her first rides have been at Kennywood and I plan on coming back. This park has so many great memories, along with family traditions. I still get weird looks when I put vinegar on my french fries.
Kennywood is a relaxing, beautiful park with great tree lined walkways. The smells and tastes are the best - real corndogs, funnel cakes, and of course the best French Fries in the country.
Thunderbolt is a must ride coaster. Every year my highschool would take a field trip to Kennywood, it was the most looking forward to field trip ever!
Kennywood is a wonderful family place to go.
Its historical and fun for both young and old.
I have fond memories going there as a kid. I cant wait to take my kids there someday!
A Time Capsule Of A Park. Kennywood is a park that I frequented as a kid living in Pittsburgh. Now after having my own twin boys (living in San Fran, CA), I've taken them to see Oma and then the park. They had a blast on the coasters, the log ride, and the amusements. Even the turnpike still has the charm it did when I was a kid. The grounds are still well kept and the park still has the same feel it did then. I recommend it for young and old.
Great Value and good folks.
I grew up going to Kennywood during yearly school picnics. The Noah's Ark was always a high point.
It is still well maintained and the rollercoasters cant be beat.
Cost wise it is still a bargin. And there aren't all those stores with the Disney hats, etc.
Still Awsome after all these years. The first time I was at KP I was 4. Now, some 30 years later, the park is still as wonderful and as much fun now as it was then. If you get a chance to go to Kennywood, GO! You won't regret it.
Tons of Fun & Beautiful surroundings. Kennywood has something for everyone (from roller coasters to kiddie land rides to shows for those who don't ride), quick lines, great potato patch fries & other foods & a beautiful landscaping. They have picnic areas for those who would like to bring their own foods. I would highly recommend a visit for yourself. :)
