kennywood/cedar point questions

Friday, July 12, 2002 1:17 PM

I was wondering how long it would take to get from the canadian border(furthest one) to kennywood, dribing the speed limit, maybe 10 above. Also how long it takes driving the speed limit or 10 above from kennywood to cedar point.

thanks

I don't know which Canadian border crossing you're coming from. If you're coming from the Detroit-Windsor crossing, it would be better off to visit Cedar Point first, then to Kennywood.

Metro Detroit to Cedar Point is around 3 hours, maybe less if you're going '10 above'. Cedar Point to Kennywood I'm not sure of, try going to expedia.com for directions, just type in the address.

Cedar Point's address is:
1 Cedar Point Drive
Sandusky, OH 44870

www.mapquest.com will give you an approximate idea.

Considering it takes me about 1 1/2 hours to get to Kennywood and 2 to get to CP I would guess it's around 3 1/2 hours between Kennywood and CP. Like everyone else said, I would try MapQuest for an exact answer.

IIRC it's actually a bit longer from Kennywood to CP. About 4 hrs.

A rollercoaster? What's that?

The furthest Canadian border, eh? Wouldn't that mean you're entering through Washington state? (Okay technically it'd be in Alaska.)

You're really gonna need to narrow that down. From Erie, it's about 2 hours to Kennywood and 1 1/2 to Niagara Falls. Does that help?

I know the following:

KennyWood to SFWoA is 3 hours. SFWoA to CP is 1 hour. That's going up and over. There is a more direct route from KennyWood to CP that takes about 3 1/4 hours, but I forgot which roads to take.

From KP to CP or vice versa, just take the Ohio/PA Turnpike and follow the signs from the exits. It's exit 6 in PA, I'm not sure aboot Ohio.

CP is exit 118, SFWoA is exit 193 and also it does NOT take 3 hours to get from Kennywood to SFWoA - it takes 2 hours tops cause I just did it today and with traffic it took me 2 hours

Yeah, I have to agree with PittDesigner - some of these times are awfully high.

Kennywood to CP should be at most 3 hours.
Kennywood to SFWOA should be 2 hours or less.
CP to SFWOA is around an hour.

Being as people drive different speeds and take different routes should we be talking miles?

Well, they are from Canada, eh? If you'll excuse me, I'm aboot to go watch Terence and Phillip while drinking some Molson.

Anywho, from I-79, the easiest route is to switch to I-76 in Cranberry, that's the PA T-pike, take exit 6, follow the signs. HOWEVER, the shortest way would be to take I-79S to I-279S in to the city, follow I-579S to I-376E, take the Swissvale exit and, once again, follow the signs.
