Kennywood Amusement Park

4800 Kennywood Boulevard


Kennywood is one of the oldest and most beloved amusement park in America. Founded in 1898, it has thrilled and delighted both young and young-at-heart visitors for more than 110 years. From the early days of the carousel, through the development of the first roller coasters, to the technological advancements in today's steel looping coasters, Kennywood has always been the park that puts a smile on everyone's face. Designated a National Historic Landmark since 1987, you'll find "Lost Kennywood," a replica of turn-of-the-century architecture that houses some of the park's most popular rides, as well as attractions that go from mild to wild throughout the park. Refuel at more than a dozen dining areas offering tasty treats that can't be found at any other amusement park anywhere. Kennywood is a unique experience and remains one of "America's Finest Traditional Amusement Parks." In fact, it's what memories are made of!

If you get a chance to see the magician "Doc" Dixon he will have you clapping and smiling. He was worth the trip from Erie alone. He had sharp wit and kindness also. This park has family appeal. Everyone is friendly. It's small enough you are tired but not exhausted by the end of the day. Can't wait to visit again next year.

My second time here in a few years. Unfortunately both times I visited the sky rocket was out of service. Quite a disappointment. Overall, the park was very clean and we had tons of fun. The only downsides were that my group of 3 got the VIP Ultimate Coaster Pass which allows us to go to the front of the coaster lines as much as we want. But there were others there with the regular VIP pass where the staff at the rides were not even paying attention to their sign-off cards and letting people who are only supposed to use the VIP entrance once per coaster go many times. I know this sounds petty, but when you spend am extra $80 per VIP pass, it kind of defeats the purpose when staff just let others go unlimited as well. Also I support Kennywood hiring young kids during the summer, but the kids working at the potato patch were unprofessional and more engaged in their own silly conversations than actually helping customers. Kennywood could definitely step up their hiring/vetting and training process. There were a few kids who literally didn't say a word while serving customers. Is this the level of customer service that is acceptable to Kennywood?

The rides are fun and the games too. Perfect for family of all ages. Older children and adults have a majority of the park and the smaller children have kiddieland. The food is good and the shows are entertaining. Plus there's so many gift shops with different products. The staff are really friendly and helpful when they're needed. Tickets are bit pricey but definitely worth it!

A great park just outside the city. There is fun for the whole family. While it doesn't have a huge number of roller coasters it still has a ton of charm and thrills for people of all ages. The lines are nothing compared to those of the bigger parks so you really can experience everything in just one day at the park.

Happy 120th birthday! Our second year for season passes. Seeing the classic cars was awesome! Love all of the rides. Food is always tasty. Even the arcade was fun to get out of the sun for a bit. Can't wait for the new Thomas area to open later this month!
