I have been going to Kennywood since I was a kid. I still get that adrenaline rush just thinking about going to the park. My favorite is Noah's Ark. The Phantoms Revenge is a great coaster with lots of air time after the second hill. I still remember taking my younger brother there for the first time. We used to... More

A day at Kennywood Park brings back memories of great times spent with family and friends. It never disappoints. The family loves the rides and the older folks love the food. Each person can find something to like about a day spent on rollercoasters, bumper cars or the wonderful Merry Go Round. Little tykes get their thrills in Kiddie Land.... More

Our family of six spent a delightful day at Kennywood. The park was originally built in 1898 and many of the rides are older, nostalgic rides from your youth. But in recent years they have also added some new rides for the newer generation of thrill seekers. They had rides to make us all smile...from kiddyland for the youngest, Phantom... More

Kennywood knows how to keep people coming back for generations. It has been a favorite since childhood school picnics and continues to attract into the old ages. Clean, safe, and of course lots of fun and food galore, this park continues to amaze with the fall parades and the winter festival is spectacular!

Not sure how anyone could possibly compare a small, local, not world-famous, amusement park to Disney (a theme park)? If your basis of comparison is Disney, then you are extremely privileged. Disney is world-famous and huge! There is no comparison between Disney and a small place like Kennywood. Lol! Seriously? Most people I know have not even been to Disney... More

A recent visit to Kennywood reminded me what a great experience the park is in the evening. It's fine during the day as well, but at night the lights and scents of the wood coasters and fried food combine to create a special place. And the rides seem better and faster at night, too. Take advantage of Kennywood's evening admission... More

Every year we have to go to Kennywood! The old wooden coasters are fun and unique and we love to eat our way through the park starting with Potato Patch fries and working our way over to the square ice cream cones. There are a lot of great rides and plenty of benches to sit and relax.

I am so dissappointed in Kennywood. Came to Pittsburgh with this as a must see on our list. I was here years ago and it was great. Only thing great this time was the dissappoinment. The expense was more than it should be. Yes parks are expensive, but for the size this one is steep. And the cost of not... More
