39-120min depending on weather


Well, so far, it's supposed to be pretty nice that day. I'll make sure that I have my phone charged, and I'll bring my hat. :lmao:


Should be able to cover the entire park in that timeframe depending on the crowd. And they don't have free WiFi so phone battery life can vary depending on carrier and signal strength.

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

Website has the coaster tour tickets and a Steel Curtain skip pass. Both have to be purchase 48 hours ahead.

Are these available in the park? Same price? $50/$20?

Interesting. Surprised they are offering an unlimited with SC included as well. Definitely a pretty penny with not enough non-coaster rides IMO but maybe when I see the lines I'll think differently...

I'm considering a visit this weekend, I also noticed the website said 1 train operations on Steel Curtain... but with VIP that doesn't matter as much. If I can buy at the park for the same price I'd rather wait to purchase.

As asked above, does anybody know how pricing is at the park?

I'm pretty certain the pricing in the park is the same as online.

Out of curiosity - I've been seeing around that Kennywood used to have a laser show at least up until 2017. is this still the case?

It was up until last season but has been removed this year. Steel Curtain forced the removal of a few of the fire effects in the lagoon and created some obstruction for the lasers.

^ Dang thats a bit of a bummer, though I’d of course rather have Steel Curtain, I am quite the fan of laser shows as well.

It was okay... nothing to write home about... Darien Lake's is far better.

The show hadn't been updated in several years. So hopefully it eventually returns with something fresh.

Don't put that donkey on the floor!

Stopped at Kennywood on my way back home to Cleveland after my big East coast trip. I'll get around to a trip report eventually but just wanted to say that Steel Curtain is great! It isn't as thrilling as one would expect by looking at it but it is very smooth, has great flow, and keeps it's speed nicely throughout. Just a great fun ride that's easy to just throw your hands up and enjoy.

It is the perfect compliment to Phantom. Phantom packs the aggressive punch, while Steel Curtain is big and intimidating looking which will always make it be a draw to GP and enthusiasts alike. Kennywood has a true winner on their hands.
