So it's gone already... I wanted to go on it for the (note: I am a retard). For some reason, the mouse's (altered) voice reminded me of Sonic SatAM Dr. Robotnik. Same voice actor, perhaps?

Kennywood shared the new logo for the Old Mill in their latest newsletter.

I'm glad Garfield was booted for an opossum and skunk. :lol:

Gosh I love this park. Renovating Steel Phantom into Phantom’s Revenge was such a brilliant move. I only wish Pitt Fall was still around!

Two years ago, I would've said to bring back the colors on the Jack Rabbit station. Now I just miss the neon, which was replaced with similarly arranged LEDs last year.

Great pics BTW! I would've loved to have ridden Steel Phantom if just for curiosity's sake.

The governor has approved 17 PA counties to enter into the "green phase" on May 29. While Allegheny County isn't one of them, it'll probably only be a week or so after these counties until it's also moved to this phase, as was the case with the red-to-yellow phase. Since anything and everything can reopen in the green phase as long as PA Department of Health and CDC guidelines are followed, I'd guess that Kennywood would start the process to reopen as soon as feasible shortly thereafter.

What's with the donkeys anyway?

I'm not sure if anyone has thought about this or brought it up, but I have to wonder how racing coasters will operate when parks reopen, especially those with a continuous loop.
