    Phantom's Revenge is definitely the star here. It's built into the natural geography, at one point following a cliff down through its own structure and below the level of the rest of the park.

    It's not the biggest amusement park but it definitely aims to please. So many roller coasters! And don't leave without getting some Potato Patch fries!!

    Coaster VIP pass is like half the price of a regular fun day ticket and totally worth it. Know that some coasters have a height requirement of 52", so beware when purchasing for kids.

    Super cool!!! Especially the old wooden rollercoasters like Jack Rabbit - mega fun. Visited during Halloween late night openings, it's even more amazing in the dark👍👍👍 love Kennywood!

    It was very pretty and the light show was great. Long lines at the few rides open and staff were a bit rude. We bought a souvenir cup for 10 bucks that promised free refills but every place was out.

    Potato Patch Fries are great. Kennywood's employees not so much. Not all of them, but a good majority of them are usually rude. Not to mention there's always things closed. (Pedro's, Skyrocket) Ugh.

    Did you know? Kennywood is one of the oldest amusement parks in the country. It opened in 1899 as a “trolley park,” a suburban amusement park built by trolley companies and linked to cities by trolley Read more

    Not the best park we’ve been to. It was about 1pm before rides started opening up when the park opened at 11am. The best thing about the park was the brisket nachos at a barbecue stand.

    I love that you can bring your own food inside to eat at your leisure. The entrance fee for one day is completely reasonable.

    Great park. Easier to het on rides than Cedar Point. Need more adult rides with newer more exciting options. But great for the kiddos.
  • Alexa (@ladylexy) A.
    More of a full day sort of activity, this is a really classic amusement park like a Coney Island or Old Cedar Point. Went here every summer.

    Kennywood is super cool! Try Phantom's revenge, Sky Rocket, eat at The potato patch, and take soft ice cream with jimmies.

    Sad to say but other than the traditional wood coasters here not much else is good . Most of rides were closed . Food and drink prices are high . Even if you get tickets on sale it's still not a value

    Showing up on days with bad weather usually means shorter waits, but the park may also close early.

    Buy a souvenir cup! It's totally worth the money: 99 cent refills every time and you can even bring it with you if you go to Kennywood multiple times this summer.

    Holiday lights was a nice little shindig. But if your child(ren) are under two years old and it is freezing like it was on 12/15/2013, please stay home or find a sitter. It was way too cold.

    Rollercoasters, french fries, and rock n roll mirrors or at least that's what worked here 25 years ago..I'm assuming that review still works!?
