Kennywood, West Mifflin

(950+ reviews on the web)
Theme Park Water / Amusement Park
Founded in 1898, Kennywood is one of the oldest amusement parks in America. The park features 46 rides including wooden and steel coasters, kiddie attractions, high-speed rides, and gentle adventures--some of which date back to the park's beginnings. Try Jack Rabbit from 1920, one of the oldest operational roller coasters in the world. See how it feels to be a rat at the Exterminator coaster. Get 45 m (146 ft) off the ground in a pendulum-like structure and meet creepy ghosts, ghouls, and skeletons at one of the three dark attractions. Three water rides also add to the fun.

  • A staple of Pittsburgh in which people travel from different states to visit. It may not have as many roller coasters as other parks, but there's enough to keep roller coaster enthusiasts occupied. This park is always busy but lines seem to move quickly enough (excluding The Exterminator). Concession stands and game booths are surprisingly affordable and there is a separate kid's section of the park for preschool age kids. I'm not sure if it still is, but parking was free for a little while. The park also holds special events around Halloween and Christmas so you can enjoy the park more than just in the summer.
  • I had an absolute epic time here. I was so happy for my visit with my school marching band and Music In The Parks 2017 at Kennywood. The rides were absolutely thrilling and incredible. Highly recommend if you visit Pittsburgh, come here! Memories of a lifetime are made here.
  • Fantastic 'traditional' amusement park. Affordable with rides for all ages and thrill-levels. You can even bring a picnic, and put your cooler in a pavilion where no one will bother it. Cedar Point has gotten too expensive and the lines are way too long. Give Kennywood a try as a pleasant alternative.
  • Amazing rides. I've had loads of fun each time ice gone there. The food, though, is a little pricy. The portions are small, and the prices are high. If you go there, I suggest packing your own food. Otherwise, it's an amazing place for all ages!
  • Grew up going to Kennywood and worked there when in college. Met my wife while we both worked summers at Kennywood. Now with 3 little ones (all under 8) we have season passes and go 5-6X per year. While it has changed over time, and we don't necessarily like that it is no longer privately owned, we are able to make new memories with our kids.
