Kennywood Park, West Mifflin

Founded in 1898, Kennywood Park is one of the oldest amusement parks in America. The park features 46 rides including wooden and steel coasters, kiddie attractions, high-speed rides, and gentle adventures--some of which date back to the park's beginnings. Try Jack Rabbit from 1920, one of the oldest operational roller coasters in the world. See how it feels to be a rat at the Exterminator coaster. Get 45 m (146 ft) off the ground in a pendulum-like structure and meet creepy ghosts, ghouls, and skeletons at one of the three dark attractions. Three water rides also add to the fun.

  • Good family fun. Typically visit big parks like Cedar Point and Walt Disney World so my perspective is a little skewed. Add to that the fact that I had two young children, this was overall a fun place to visit while in Pittsburgh. Rides are available for everyone. Reasonable food options. Entry fee was reasonable. Overall good family fun.
  • This place is great! Although, sometimes their best rides are down. And if they get a storm warning, the will wait until they actually see something until they call off the rides. But one great thing is the laser light show + fireworks, it’s beautiful!
