Idlewild is a fantastic park for families with young and not so young children. The Soak Zone is a great place to cool off on hot summer days, my youngest especially loves the Captain Kids water play area...I can let him play in the different areas without the fear of losing him. Mister Rogers Neighborhood and Storybook Forest are favorites. They have a great fries in Hoot N Holler and the Cyclone Cones in the ride area are to die for.....think a huge waffle cone with vanilla ice cream and tons of strawberries and whipped cream...Yum!!

Another great thing about the park is, it never feels super crowded and wait times are usually pretty quick...with the exception of the roller coasters and Mr Roger's Trolley ride. A great place to make family memories!!

Stroll through the Storybook forest first ,the little ones love recognizing the characters from their fairytale books. Then, you climb the jumping jungle(a playground for all ages). The rest of the day is poolside and/or amusement park rides. Yes, wait for the trolley at Mr. Rogers Neighborhood and sing along. No thrill rides such as tall superfast rollercoasters but still a fun park to take the kids with the entire family, leave the children's friends at home. That's what the school picnic at Kennywood is for.This a nice fun day to actually enjoy with mom/dad, grandma and grandpap.

This is a very nice amusement park for young and old alike. In fact, I brought my kids to it when they were young. Now I am bringing my grandchildren. The park includes a story book forest for the young at heart as well as the kids. We enjoyed....going into the crooked house built by the crooked old man or stepping on the deck of the Good Ship Lollipop...and trying to pull the sword Excalibur out of the rock that it is embedded in. Stories that many of us grew up with and that our children are missing out on today. The amusement part of the park has your standard kid to adult rides including a water park. There is also a large picnic area wrapped around the north side of the park within easy walking distance of the rides.
