Owner description: Kennywood is America's Finest Traditional Amusement Park! Located just outside Pittsburgh, PA, Kennywood offers a unique mix of classic rides and modern thrills, including six roller coasters, a 14-ride Kiddieland, and several attractions that cannot be found anywhere else. Kennywood's three wooden coasters have all been designated Landmark rides by the American Coaster Enthusiasts (ACE). Founded as a trolley park in 1898 and named a National Historic Landmark in 1987, Kennywood guarantees unforgettable fun for all ages. The experience goes well beyond the rides, as guests enjoy homemade fudge, tasty funnel cakes, and the world-famous Potato Patch fries! And Kennywood is not just a summer attraction, either! Visit on fall weekends for Happy Hauntings, a kid-friendly daytime event, or Phantom Fright Nights, where scare-actors roam the grounds and jolts await on every thrill ride! Visit weekends from Thanksgiving to New Year's for Holiday Lights, Pittsburgh's best winter tradition!

This park is fun for the entire family. It is not a huge park, but is a wonderful family-friendly park that you can enjoy all the rides in a single day. They also sell season passes if you plan on visiting frequently. The park offers roller coasters, water rides, a separate section for the smaller kids, everything you need for a full day of fun, no matter what the age is.

More roller coaster rides than I can handle. Nice place to take the family and enjoy the cool outdoors on a summer evening. Tasty fries and ice cream at the concession stands.

I like kennywood park, there is alot of rides and games but it all the same. You need to change things around the same thing gets boring, year after year. They need to put money into it the park.

Kennywood is getting way too expensive. The only time my family and I go is for my husband's company picnic when tickets are only 10.00. It is a Pittsburgh icon but it needs more updated rides. Not real impressed with the park because the lines are long and the park is rather small.

The park has rides that take you on a nostalgic trip down memory lane. There is a nice mix of rides for young and old. The Jack Rabbit wooden roller coaster is thrilling and there isn't another one like in existence. The old time carousel is a perfect way to end your day. The park is not huge like Great Adventure or Disney but it has many rides packed into it. You feel like you have stepped back in time. It is a happy place. Lines for rides aren't too bad and thin out at night. The food choices are excellent - you must get potato patch fries. Food is a bit expensive. If in Pittsburgh you need to come to the park. You will enjoy it!
