The park's main attractions are Boulder Dash (one of the top wooden coasters in the world), Phobia Phear Coaster (from Premier) and Thunder 'n' Lightning (S&S Screamin' Swing). Night rides on Boulder Dash are a must.

Other attractions that should not be missed are Down Time and Ghost Hunt. Operations can be slow on Ghost Hunt and Wildcat, the park's second wooden coaster. On hot summer days, the park has two water attractions, Saw Hill Plunge and Thunder Rapids, that will get you wet. The park is also home to the Splash Harbor water park, which is included in the price of admission.

For more information about rides please visit the park's website at:
The park's main food location is the Croc Pot Cafeteria, which features a range of hot entrees, sandwiches, and salads. If you are looking for Mexican food, check out La Fiesta, which features tacos, burritos, and nachos. Other food options include pizza, Philly cheese steak, and panini sandwiches.

For the sweet tooth or a snack, you do not want to miss one of the park's trademarks in the Fried Bat--a mixture of fried dough and Oreo cookies! There is also the Potato Patch (same as Kennywood), which serves natural fresh cut fries.

Finally, if you are thirsty, be sure to take advantage of unlimited free soda beverages, which are available at the park every day, all day long! They're Pepsi products but, hey, they're free!
