I have been going to Kennywood my entire life. This park has always been a summer must and I have many memories here. It has been a few years since I have visited and decided to go back. The park was in ok condition. The new owners seem to be more money oriented and do not care about the history... More

A classic amusement park with all of the best rides and lots high calorie fried food. Still it has a lake for rowing and 4 wooden roller coasters and one steel. Rides for the kids and adults. Best at night when the cost is half and the park is aglow.

Kennywood Park has always been the best thrill ride park...ever! When I was a youngster we used to have our school picnics at West View and was so jealous that the schools my dad was affiliated with went to Kennywood. So as I got older, I got to go to both and man, I was so elated! My best rides... More

This place has a rich history, as in the landmark. There is a National Historic Landmark posted somewhere near the park and it mentions that General Braddock I think, not 100% sure maybe at that point it was General George Washington, fought a battle on these grounds or camped here, again I'm not 100% sure this is just from what...

I love Kennywood, as a local it's a tradition, and I wouldn't have it any other way. They have delicious food, and even if you don't ride (i do not) it's still a great day! I get season passes every year, always something fun to do! 3 years ago they started Kennywood Lights for the Christmas season. It's beautiful, you... More

Perhaps one of the nicest parks in the country. Has rides for every age and not all spread out so you don't have to walk to much. A lot of food choices and plenty of places to sit and relax in the shade.

This 100+ year old park hasn't forgotten its history or old school charm with plenty of trees and park benches, unlike some modern corporate parks. Kennywood has several last of its kind rides including the only operating Noah's Ark in the world as well as the last Auto Race and one of only 5 Old Mill rides in the US... More
