One of only two operational “Tumble Bug” rides remaining in the world, the Turtle has been a Kennywood tradition since 1927. Families board one of six turtle shaped cars that travel around on a circular track over a set of three hills and dips. This is another ride that most children graduating from Kiddieland ride first.
Riders under 46″ tall must ride with a responsible person. No infants permitted.
*Though the Turtle has operated for Holiday Lights in the past several seasons, the ride will not be open for 2017 Holiday Lights.
