Built for the 1995 season as part of the park’s Lost Kennywood, the Pittsburg Plunge is a reworked version of the old Shoot-the-Chute boat rides of the early 1900s. After plunging down the 50 foot drop, a gigantic splash is created that soaks both riders and onlookers.
Riders must be at least 36″ to ride. Riders between 36″ and 46″ must ride with a responsible person.
