Ghostwood Estate New For 2008

A state-of-the-art dark ride named Ghostwood Estate will replace the Gold Rusher, which was removed this past August. The eight room haunted house combines a trackless conveyance system with cars programmed and monitored by a computer as well as numerous Computer Generated Images. The cars will be armed with blasters, that will provide guests the opportunity to compete with others in the vehicle by shooting at over 200 interactive targets throughout the estate.

Kennywood Moving Service Center

Kennywood has announced the Service Center Building will be converted into a gift shop for the 2007 season, as part of the theme for Cosmic Chaos. A new Guest Services Building will be located just down the midway at the former site of Chuckles Challenge across from the entrance to Noah’s Ark.

New At Kennywood In 2007

Cosmic Choas will replace the Flying Carpet. (There is no word on the future of the Flying Carpet at this time, however sources suggest the ride is for sale.)

The ride, called MEGA DISK’O by its manufacture Zamperla, Inc. seats 24 people on a giant disk, a.k.a., the UFO. From a top height of 50’ the space ship begins its untamed flight along the 120’ concave track while its passengers spin around in circle. The result? An experience that offers guests an “out of this world” experience!

The SS Kenny a smaller family version of the Disk-O will also be added to Kiddieland, the ride will sit on the former site of the Kiddie Cadillac’s.
