Kennywood went live with a brand new version of their web site today! The site has been completely redesigned and, in our opinion, is a very welcome improvement over the old site. Head over to www.kennywood.com to check it out today!
Please note that they are still working out some of the bugs in the site, and they ask for everyone’s patience for a week or so until they get everything perfect.
For the past four seasons something has been missing from Kennywood. Since the removal of the Garden Stage at the end of the 2005 season there were no live music shows at Kennywood. In 2010 the music returns to the midway. Two new live music shows will be featured at the Kennyville Stage this summer. Songs of the 80’s and The Beat Goes On featuring songs from the 50’s and 60’s.
Also…The Kenya Safari Acrobats are back and will be performing in the Kennywood Arena.
For more information visit the official Kennywood Park website.
The King Kahuna has been removed from the park. Kennywood Connection has learned the fountain will remain and the area will be converted into a garden for the 2010 season.
According to an update on the Kennywood Park Website the park will introduce a Season Pass that will go on sale in March. The price will be $89.99 and will not include Phantom Fright Nights. The update also states that only a limited number of these Season Passes will be available and will be sold on first come first serve basis.
Premier has released drawings of the new trains for Sky Rocket. As you can see from the renderings below the trains will be open air, and will not feature over the shoulder restraints but just a lap bar. You know what that means, no head banging inversions and plenty of air time!
