Got Steel Curtain 11x today. Yeah, I splurged. Full report later this week. But wow, that thing is nuts in a very good way. Phantom's Revenge (6x) was great as well. Can't wait to take my daughter next year. Park was packed. SC was a two hour wait the whole time I was there.

One of my favorite bands just announced a Halloween show in Pittsburgh on 10/18. Thinking of doing a drive from ATL to Pittsburgh (ugh) to see the show on Friday then spend Saturday at Kennywood. I see that they split the day into 2 parts so 2 seperate tickets. Any idea what the prices are for the two seperate events and if all the rides, save water rides, are expected to be open during the Halloween weather?

I bought two tickets last November on a $29.99 sale. I only used one and will not be returning to Kennywood before September 15, when this ticket expires. If anybody is heading to KW soon and wants a freebie, let me know.

Tickets for their Phantom Fright Nights event were $30 last year. They haven't yet announced pricing for this year. Most of the major rides will be open for Phantom Fright Nights, with a few exceptions for areas that are closed because they've turned them into scare zones. This is what was open last year (from their website and *memory):

  • Aero 360
  • Black Widow
  • Bayern Kurve
  • Cosmic Chaos
  • Exterminator
  • Ghostwood Estate
  • Gran Prix
  • Jack Rabbit
  • Kangaroo
  • Musik Express
  • Noah's Ark
  • Paratrooper
  • Phantom's Revenge
  • Pirate
  • Racer
  • Skycoaster
  • Swing Shot
  • Thunderbolt*
  • Volcano
  • Wave Swinger*
I would expect Steel Curtain to be open for the event as well, barring any more technical difficulties cropping up. Same for Sky Rocket, which was down for a good chunk of the year last season -- if it can avoid blowing itself up again, you should be good. :)

The event earlier in the day, Happy Hauntings, may not interest you unless you have kids with you. They have things like a hayride, hay maze, a trick-or-treating trail, and a bunch of the kiddie rides open plus a few others like the MGR, Paratrooper, etc. They did have Jack Rabbit open last year... not sure if the coaster selection will differ at all this year.

^I am hopeful we can win top team. I have some money still incoming to my page, as well as my girlfriend signing up! If we can get another participant, that would be a huge help toward meeting that goal.
