New question!

Has anyone here ever heard of Goldstar before? If so would you recommend getting tickets from them? Apparently they sell for only $32 each for 3 people as opposed to the Kennywood site offer of $49.99 each.

Ticketsatwork.com have them for 31.50 plus tax. Never heard of goldstar but that price does sound legit. Kennywood does have other prices under their discount pricing.

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

Thank you! I'll take this over the crazy processing fees Goldstar requires :)

Steel Curtain is fun. Phantom is fun. Kennywood as a whole seems like a dump.

Edit: it's been a tough day. Long drive, crappy ops, crowded, line jumpers, idiots being especially idiotatic, and then shutting down when rain showed up. Skies were beautiful by 7pm

Win some, lose some. Maybe tomorrow.

^ What!!! I loved Kennywood on my visit last year. Has a different kind of vibe to it. Very laid back with an old school charm.
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

I'd never call Kennywood anything like a dump, but I'll certainly agree on the ops. It never used to be that way but my last few trips there, most of the rides have had operations that made your average Six Flags look like Knoebels; ridiculously slow dispatch times, just ignoring line jumpers, or constantly mis-counting the number of people they can let onto a ride at once. It's really frustrating at what's otherwise such a fun place.

That said, I've been there in rain several times, and except in one case where it was so bad it began flooding (and there were tornados very nearby as well), it's never closed.

It was a beautiful night in Pitt this evening. Would have been great to be at the park. Oh well. Just really disappointing. Seems crazy they shut down at 615 but not my park or call. Got rain tix then hung out with old friends. We are going to swing by and get our missing credits and a few flats tomorrow before heading downtown for the game. Hershey on Sunday.

^ We also got those rain tickets, but they say 2020 on them. Am I correct in assuming they aren’t valid until next year?

If that’s true it would be a total bummer because I’ll be moving down to Florida and likely won’t be able to use them if I can’t use them this season...

Maybe it was just me but I was fine with the operations today. We took it slow and maybe that’s why I didn’t care as much but we got on the rides we did go on relatively quickly and/or efficiently considering the line. Steel Curtain’s line was almost consistently moving which I was very happy to see and was very glad to get a ride on that and phantom before the rain kicked in and shut the place down.
