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!
The Turnpike has been removed to make way for Sky Rocket. A new coaster designed by Premier Rides that will send riders through both new and familiar elements from the parks past. Remember the days of the Laser Loop? Sky Rocket will not feature a lift hill but will launch you from 0-50 mph straight up into the sky. Remember the days of the Steel Phantom? Sky Rocket will feature inversions, such as a corkscrew that haven’t been seen at Kennywood since the transformation of the Steel Phantom into the Phantom’s Revenge. As for new elements, how about a vertical drop, inverted top hat, and a barrel roll.
