In accordance with state and federal guidelines, Kennywood has implemented enhanced health and safety measures to protect everyone. Before you go, please note the following:
Have your kids grown since last summer? Be sure to stop by one of Kennywood’s Service Centers for a height check! Located near Noah’s Ark and at the Front Gate, kids are measured and provided a color-coded wristband with their “official” height. When entering a ride, show the operator your kid’s wristband to avoid measurements for every ride.
A trip to Kennywood isn’t complete without a stop at The Potato Patch! The “Patch” serves homemade fries with fresh cut Idaho potatoes. Top off your fries with melted cheddar cheese, bacon, vinegar, gravy, or seasoning salts. Eat like a local with Potato Patch Fries – food you can only get in Pittsburgh!
In partnership with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Kennywood opened the record-breaking Steel Curtain in 2019. At a maximum height of 220 feet and featuring nine inversions, the coaster speeds through 4,000 feet of track at 76 miles per hour. The Steel Curtain sets three records: the tallest roller coaster in Pennsylvania, the most inversions on a roller coaster in North America, and the tallest inversion in the world!
Many visitors will avoid a day calling for rain, which means these days tend to be less busy. Many of the rides still run if the weather isn't too bad. If the weather takes a turn for the worse causing the park to close early, rain checks are issued for guests that present their ticket stubs. This means you can get some riding in when it isn't busy, and come back another day if the park does close!
