On my fan site in the revision history, the furthest back I can pull a price for is 2014 when gate prices were $40.99. $41.99 for 2015, $43.99 for 2016, $44.99 for 2017, and $48.99 for 2018.

I really think they're just trying to push everyone to get season passes.

Edit: I updated my site with this year's pricing... I think it's a little easier to compare all of the prices than on kennywood.com

I’m curious if anyone else is taking the tour on Sunday? My daughter and I are pretty stoked regardless of the weather.

I'll be there (which is probably not surprising)! I was there on 3/20 as well for the media tour, so it should be interesting to see the progress in person!

Epic. What a weird and cool looking ride this will be.

Any farther update/talk around town about possible opening? My return trip depends on it being open by June or not. Im gunna show horn KI instead. Playing chicken with myself on how long I should wait to book tix back and gamble on it being open or not

There’s been nothing on the news around here about an opening date.

I see two sites reporting that several recently-installed pieces of track have since been removed from the top of Steel Curtain's big Drachen Fire dive/drop. I'm not sure if the sites are TPR-friendly to include the links, but they're easy enough to find.

Without a set opening date beyond the broad span of "this summer," my fingers stay crossed that the coaster is pulled off without trouble and is a great experience. Alterations and tweaks happen with new coasters, but no one wants a reason to doubt or be reminded of Gale Force's wearisome issues. Hopefully construction continues confidently. In S&S We Trust!

Yes I saw that as well. It seemed pretty confirmed. It happens, I get it. That said, an opening by June 9 seems highly unlikely (elsewhere someone seemed to think the park was now aiming for July, at earliest) so I am giving up my KW plans. Which is fine, I can go next year esp after hearing reviews. OR if itll be open late season (the site seems to indicate not all rides are open at later dates) I may just make a trip up there for it

For those that missed it. KW posted on their Social Media today that Sky Rocket is testing and should be running soon.

I keep forgetting about this freaking roller coaster being built. . . And it looks so amazing.
