West Mifflin - 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!

This is a great antique amusement park! I LOVED it. One ride operator at the Carousel was a carousel fanatic as well as me! As he was going around to see if everybody was behaving correctly, he said: "Carousel fanatics like you are the ones keeping these beautiful machines going!" That made me SO happy! I couldn't wipe the grin off my face for the entire ride! And, after the next change of ride-ops, he gave me a carousel music website link on a piece of old Wurlitzer roll paper! I wanna give him a giant tip for being outstanding. Best wishes! (Plus, I come from TN, so this was DEFINITELY worth the drive!) -

We finally made it to see the Christmas lights! I have loved Kennywood since I was a child, but this made it a little more special! They were very, very well done! Lights everywhere! So pretty!

Kennywood is a fun, family oriented amusement park. My family has season passes and have been going here for many years. It's a beautiful park with lots of rides. They also have Fright Nights during Halloween and a wonderful Christmas light display at Holiday Lights. Plus, Fireworks on the 4th of July and parades during Fall Fantasy with area high school bands and floats, etc. Really is a beautiful park and fun time. My only complaint would be the Pizza Pavillion. Does nobody know how to properly cook a pizza anymore? It's always burnt or raw lately and it takes forever to get your order. Big disappointment the last 2 seasons.

This is fun for the whole family. Great rides, food, games, and free entertainment. It is a bit expensive to get in and to eat plus the food is not very good. If you want a great family day out or a date this is the place to go.
