Here's the VIP Coaster Tour info: https://www.kennywood.com/VIPCoasterTours Seems they do have an Unlimited pass for $80 that has "limited availability"

Also, the website mentions that the Sky Rocket is down for repairs until further notice.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I saw a photo on Facebook that a building adjacent to the coaster caught on fire, so that could explain why Sky Rocket is down.

Wow. I hadn't seen that photo of SkyRocket. That looks a little more intense than the Sky Ride at Cedar Point smoke we saw last week. ;)

In all seriousness, hopefully this will be a quick fix for Kennywood.

The smoke that was coming from skyride at cedarpoint, was nothing more than the exhaust from the generator due to the power outage.

Was at the park yesterday, Thomas Town is a ways out yet. Still finishing work on the buildings. I saw 3/4 of the new rides, though one was covered. No landscaping done or anything yet either. At least a month and a half I’d say.

Here's our most recent overview pic of the Thomas Town area from a few days ago. Things are moving along nicely, but as mentioned still a ways to go!

Looks like the 2019 project has an official codename: Project 412!

From the Kennywood Park Facebook Page:

Something big is coming to Kennywood in 2019! PROJECT 412 has broken ground, and the guessing game as to what that means begins now!

Every Thursday, we’ll scratch off another number on our PROJECT 412 card, so follow along and take your best guesses at how they all add up to form Kennywood’s 2019 attraction. Want us to reveal the first number today? Then SHARE this post!

Once every number is revealed, well, then the REAL fun will begin! And make sure to visit us soon - you may just find some additional clues around the park...

My first thought was a new Vekoma. Most of there models are associated with a number. I looked on RCDB and was expecting to see a a model 412M. Nope i was wrong lol
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks
