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.

Kennywood Park reviews
After a few years away from Kennywood, I am happy to say that the newer coasters and updated rides have brought the fun back to Kennywood. It keeps the small park feel with original rides, but the Steel Curtain offers a great "new feel" in the world of roller coasters with a giant climb and gentle and smooth loops. The Skyrocket is my new favorite though as I couldn't stop giggling and smiling from the fast paced endless short hills. Also, all the staff was friendly and kind. Two thumbs up to Kennywood for all the positive updates!! Keep the coasters coming Kennywood 😀
We only went for a short. The lines did not move as quick as they could have if the staff that had better directions they could’ve doubled people up and move the line quicker the young help seem to be an experienced but we had a great time and I’m sure we will go back. I was very pleased also that they offered senior discounts for the limited time we were there. Again always great memories. Keep the lines moving fast is my best advice.
