Kennywood memories (Video)

Sunday, September 29, 2002 6:47 PM

I did a search and found nothing on this so here goes.

A buddy of mine has a video that he requested from his sister to get for him in Pennsylvania. The video is titled "Kennywood Memories". Its a 60-minute vid showcasing the park from its early years up until I believe the mid to late 80's.

It features the likes of JackRabbit, Thunderbolt, Racer, and the Laser Loop(Shuttle Loop) for the coasters. It also features alot of the employees including a lady who has worked at the park since 1929 and still is employed there up until this vid was made.

Other segments were of various flat rides, a penny arcade, Noah's Ark, and the world famous Potato Patch fries.

Very well put together video that made me feel like I have been to the park by the time I finished viewing it. If you havent seen this video before and are a Kennywood enthusiast, you must check this vid out.

2 superheroes in Gurnee next season? Oh the humanity.

Yeah, Chitown, living about ten minutes away from Kennywood, you can't help but have seen it. It is a good documentary, however, I do wish it isn't so outdated. Oh well, it's still not bad to watch every once in awhile.

I feel like I've seen this on PBS a long time ago. I remember the Laser Loop.
If you want expensive rides, you're going to pay for them, in one way or another.

I have that video! It is indeed a great video! And guess what! My mom is in the video. I forget what segment but you can see her in the backround (she used to work there). How cool is that!? Also, my Dad worked there too and he worked as the voice of Kennywood, announcing closing times, missing children etc.!

Kennywood Memories is part of a series of videos produced by Rich Sebak. Each one is a wonderful documentary showcasing the unique personalities and places of Pittsburgh.

You can purchase any of these videos, including Kennywood Memories through the Pittsburgh PBS TV station's website
