Holiday Lights

Ever wondered what Kennywood looks like in the winter, covered with millions of lights and a light dusting of snow? During December weekends, Kennywood transforms into a winter wonderland to be experienced in a whole new light!

In addition to the dazzling lights, Kennywood offers a host of unique experiences during Holiday Lights. The Olde Kennywood Railroad transforms into the holiday-themed Gingerbread Express, the 4-D Theater screens The Polar Express 4-D Experience, and Noah’s Ark and Ghostwood Estate also receives a yuletide makeover. The Merry-Go-Round, Kangaroo, Auto Race, Pirate, and the Turtle, as well as most Kiddieland rides operate as weather permits.

Other attractions include Mrs. Claus’ Kitchen, home to fresh baked goods; the Parkside Café, which hosts a model train display, cookie decoration and memorabilia from It’s A Wonderful Life; special performances at both stages; and of course, the spectacular light show every 15 minutes at the Lagoon.
