Kennywood continues to share excellent construction photos as the Steel Curtain roller coaster grows by the day! Rain or shine, sun or snow, this project isn't slowing!


Like most the rest of Kennywood, #SteelCurtain construction looks better with a beautiful blue sky backdrop! Just wait until this is finished and complemented by green trees!


This post comes in honor of Dr. Seuss, who would be 115 years old today...

Sun, wind, rain or snow;
Construction on Steelers Country continues to go!


Steel was flying high this afternoon as crews continue installing the lift hill on #SteelCurtain!


Getting in gear: along with installation of the lift hill comes parts of The #SteelCurtain's chain lift mechanism.
Change the scheme, Alter the mood! Electrify the boys and girls if you would be so kind!


Yummy! I just ate donkey!
