Originally called the SkyDiver, the Paratrooper has been at Kennywood for nearly 60 years. Riders board one of ten “parachute” shaped cars which swing freely and rotate in a cicular motion as the ride lifts to a 45-degree angle above the midway.
Riders must be at least 36″ tall to ride. Riders between 36″ and 46″ must ride with a responsible person.
