This was our annual visit for the lights. Summer is always nice, but the lights add a whole different level to Kennywood's magic. The crowds weren't bad so the lines were decent. The night was cold, but clear & dry. Get the refillable mug-- it's the best deal going for 99cent refills. Be sure to watch the light show around... More

Visiting with family for the first time during this time of the season. We arrive before they opened and got in line. Entered the park and headed straight towards Ghostwood Estates. The outside was decorated nicely. We were the first riders of the night. The pre-show was replaced with two of Santa's elves. The ride itself wasn't much different than... More

We took a large group on bogo 1/2 day. The park was crowded but laid off well with plenty of shade and seating. They have a ride that splashes a large wave of water on the crowd. Great way to cool down.

A great smooth steel coaster in Phantom's Revenge. A ice cream dessert that used to be prevalent on the East Coast at New Jersey Beaches and at fairs, but that I had not seen in over 20... More

The last time I visited Kennywood it was August. Every year our company has a picnic there. The whole time I was growing up our schools had picnics there. It is a truly unique amusement park. Instead of a big slab of concrete with rides lining everything to old-fashioned park that you just don't see anymore. Yet some of the... More
