Kennywood '07

Kennywood's flats are amazing (long cycles!), but I'll be sad to see the Carpet go. However, a Disk'O and Screamin' Swing in the same park (and PR, and...) makes me happy.

I like the new additions. They seem to be perfect fits for the park.

I'm planning a visit sometime this summer. The Steel Phantom and the Thunderbolt will be my first stops, then anything else that looks fun.

Lord Gonchar's avatar Well, you're about 6 years too late for Steel Phantom, but Phantom's Revenge is pretty fun too. ;)

I goofed. Glad you caught it. I was reading up on the original coaster, and my brain got stuck.

I need my local park to open NOW!!!

^Also be sure you hit the Jack Rabbit, it may look tame but its double down finale is second to none; also as an added bonus its a John Miller coaster (ie the guy most responsible for creating the modern roller coaster, he created the 3 wheel design allowing coasters to have airtime without derailment.) Kennywood is a very unique park, youll spend most of your day riding flats, and in that regard be sure to ride the Turtle, Noah's Ark, Kangroo and Auto Race all of these are one of a kind classics.

Finally, if you want to do Exterminator (indoor crazy mouse, very well themed) go early (after hitting Phantom's Revenge) as this attraction has a huge line most of the day.

Don't forget the Racer, too, which was also built by John Miller! It's one of the most fun racing coasters operating today with its single track moebius design and unique layout. It's also the oldest operating racing coaster in the world today.

KW has that great balance of family and thrill rides that sets it apart from so many parks. It also does such a great job of preserving historic rides while adding new state-of-the-art rides.

The park atmosphere and the good, reasonably-priced food also add to the experience.

Don't miss the Dentzel Carousel or the train ride along the edge of the cliff above the river. The Log Jammer is also unusual with a down and up drop similar to what is found on roller coasters.

Kennywood is an amazing park! I'm very lucky, in that I live midway between Cedar Point and KW, so I get to go to both parks regularly. I can't wait to see what KW will do with all that new land. Whatever they decide to build in the future, it will be well thought out, one of a kind, and extraordinary.

I'm planning to hit any ride I can get to, including the JR and the Racer. In addition to PR and TB. Considering the drive I'll be doing to get there, I'm not missing anything!
