Kennywood park has so much history behind it that one could almost class it a museum! This park takes so much pride in keeping old (yet thrilling) rides running, while still adding the new and modern. Most of the rides here differ from the established standards, and that works extremely well. Also good food, great atmosphere (particularly at night), and even a working bayern kurve! Whether you like coasters or flat-rides, you won't be bored at Kennywood.
