Sky Rocket is a thrilling coaster from Premier that became the park's sixth major coaster in 2010. Steel Phantom and Thunderbolt use the natural terrain of the park with great success. Jack Rabbit is one of the oldest wooden coasters and still provides great moments of air, especially with its famous "double down." Racer is one of only three mobius coasters in the world.

However, beyond the coasters are some of the best classic flat rides, headlined by Kangaroo, The Turtle, Noah's Ark (walkthrough funhouse), and Garfield's Nightmare (Tunnel of Love). But Kennywood has been consistently bringing in modern flat rides, as well.
Pizza, hot dogs, burgers, and sandwiches can be found at multiple locations in the park. Shwinery serves fresh BBQ. Many are loyal to the Potato Patch and Small Frys stands. Fries are available with eight toppings. Lines can get long but it's worth the wait. There are a few franchisees in the park with Johnny Rockets and Wafels and Dinges. You can still find fresh lemonade and cotton candy made to order, too.
Operating Season
Daily operations run from mid-May through late August. Weekend operations generally start a few weeks earlier and extend the season until the end of October.
Established Seasonal events
Phantom Fright Nights occur throughout the month of November on Friday and Saturday nights.
