Create an itinerary including Kennywood Park
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. Make Kennywood Park a centerpiece of your West Mifflin vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our West Mifflin day trip site.

  • If you go on a weekday, it'll be a lot less crowded. When we went, some of the rides were closed, which was disappointing, but still a great experience. Lots of trees and benches so you don't really spend the whole day in the sun. The food was great! Large variety and reasonably priced. The cafe has AC, a nice selection of food and desserts, restrooms, and the people working in there were fantastic. The general park staff was awesome! Very friendly and accommodating to our special needs guest. Ample parking, both a free and a paid lot that was only $12 for the day. The arcade was small but inexpensive and the kids really enjoyed it. If you have a special need, go to Guest Services and ask for a free Disability Pass. It covers you and 3 other people riding with you. If your kid likes Thomas The Tank Engine, they will LOVE Thomas Town! (No additional charge for TT). The park also has ticket packages and season passes available.
  • Our family travels about 1 1/2 hrs to come to Kennywood once a year because this truly is a great family park! It is so clean here, the staff are very nice, and the food is actually very delicious and full of flavor!! Potato Fries are the BOMB!! The games here are very kid friendly too! Our 4 yr old granddaughter actually won her own prize! Thanks Kennywood for being a family oriented park! You will always have our vote! ❤️
