ICE AGE: No Time for Nuts at Kennywood’s New 4D Theater

As construction progresses on Kennywood’s new-for-2015 4D theater, the park has announced the film that will play inside for its debut season. Ice Age: No Time for Nuts features the infamous Scrat and his quest to retrieve his beloved acorn, filled (of course) with all sorts of mishaps along the way.

The 88-seat theater is scheduled to open on Wednesday, July 29th!

Johnny Rockets at Kennywood is OPEN!

Yes, it’s true…Kennywood’s highly-anticipated new restaurant is now open to the public! Kennywood Connection was graciously invited to the media ceremony, and we are happy to report that Johnny Rockets impressed and exceeded our expectations.

Click here to check out our full update on our Facebook page. Be sure to join in on the discussion on our forums to share your experience with Johnny Rockets and discuss the new addition to Kennywood cuisine.

As always, we’d like to extend a hearty thank-you to Kennywood’s Public Relations director Jeff Filicko for allowing us to be part of this event!

Season Pass Processing on April 26-27

GREAT news for anyone needing to get a season pass made for the 2014 season! Kennywood has just announced that it will hold two Season Pass Processing days a full week in advance of opening day. For those with season pass vouchers needing to be processed, mark your calendars for Saturday, April 26 and Sunday, April 27. From 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM, the park will host passholders at the front gate to process their season passes.

We highly recommend attending these days, especially if you plan to visit Kennywood on Opening Day. Trying to get your pass processed on Opening Day has historically been a frustrating experience with extremely long lines, so getting it out of the way early will definitely be nice. This is a great call by the park and goes to show they really do care about guests’ experience.
