We really loved Kennywood, with a couple of exceptions. Our first complaint was that we arrived bright and early at 10:30 when the park opens. Well, most of their rides don't open right away, and they don't tell you that on their website, so we ended up wasting around a half an hour sitting around. The good coasters/rides don't open up for an hour or so after opening, nor do the concessions. I don't understand this?
The one coaster we wanted to ride, Phantoms Revenge, was having problems for most of the day and kept closing. When it was open, the line was loooong. They don't post the wait times like most parks do, and we waited for over an hour and a half in this line. The next time we go, I will definitely spend the extra cash and purchase the "Front of the Line" passes.
The kids did enjoy the rides, and most of the lines moved quickly. There are a lot of trees in this park, which is nice because when you do wait, you are shaded for some of the time.
The "kiddie" part had a nice selection of rides and games.
Be prepared to get wet on the log rides. They were so much fun!!!
Overall, a great park. If it wasn't for them not having their attractions ready at opening time, I would have given it 5 stars.
