There are eight roller coasters, a 12-ride Kiddieland, and areas themed to Thomas & Friends™ and the Pittsburgh Steelers, highlighted by the record-setting Steel Curtain, and its famous Potato Patch fries!

Founded as a trolley park in 1898 and celebrated 125 seasons in 2023, the Kennywood experience extends beyond summer with popular Halloween and Holiday events, including Fright Night and Phantom Fall Fest, and Kennywood Holiday Lights featuring an abundance of holiday cheer.

Kennywood’s three coasters from the 1920s join attractions like Noah’s Ark and Kangaroo as rarities that cannot be found anywhere else.
