I know many of you know that there is no point of going to kennywood if you don't live in pa only because there is only 2 great coasters there(phantoms revenge and thunderbolt) But i herd CCI was there and there is a crane behind the jackrabbit (go behind into the pavilions) so do u no any news cause kennywood is my home park and there is a feeling u get like no other when you enter it!
There are 4 great rollercoasters there but only 2 known world wide! Supposaly kennywood was going to get an inverted then a dive machine well what is it gonna be Kennywood might even put up a nice thrill ride which would be nice now that its passed labor day i think kennywood will start building or start planning for next year!!!!

I don't know about you folks, but I have seen all 5 of Kennywood's current coasters (and the defunct SP) featured on various coaster shows over the last few seasons. I'd say they are all well known, and they are all good. Exterminator really surprised me.
About the new CCI coaster... sounds doubtful since there is no more CCI.

Being that Kennywood is my home park, I do believe that the crane you are referring to has been back there a few years. I think it is black and gold. I could be very wrong though. As for 2003 Screamscape seem to mention the possibility of a Huss ride, but I wouldn't put too much into anything over there. A nice new woodie would be great, but I don't see it happening for next year. For now, we'll just have to enjoy the nice collection of coasters that they have.
Kennywood is getting something, sure. They're keeping it in the family, so to speak.

The crane is white and it was moving when i saw it all i know is that kennywoods head owner was walking around the park and shaking hands with people and saying how did u like the park u should come back next year is that a hint!!!!!!!!!!
steel phantom, there is always equipment back by the jack rabbit. when didn't you notice this? they have a maintenance place back there and all that other stuff. there is always equipment, including large equipment back there. Geez, isn't the hint Jeff gave you enough? Can't you tell that the rumor is false since CCI doesn't even exist anymore, nor did they build inverted coasters. And lastly, where would they even put it back there? there is no where near enough land for a semi large coaster, especially an inverted coaster. Geez, if you're so worried about riding a new coaster next year, quit kidding yourself, and go to a park you haven't been to yet.
Okay, there's a Manitex 165' crane truck, and a Grove 86' manlift parked behind the Jack Rabbit. Neither of these pieces of equipment are of any use if you're building a coaster. We own them. You need cranes for maintenance, too.
Sorry to burst your bubble.
