On Sunday, July 27th as part of KennyKon XXV with ACE Western Pennsylvania, we had the opportunity to tour Kennywood’s railroad property. The property, located in the ravine behind Racer, was previously used as locomotive repair shops for the Union Railroad, and is primarily being used for storage at this time. There is a very wide variety of items stored on the property, ranging from Phantom Fright Nights and Holiday Lights props and decorations to parts of rides. Check out some of what we found!

Yes, it’s true…Kennywood’s highly-anticipated new restaurant is now open to the public! Kennywood Connection was graciously invited to the media ceremony, and we are happy to report that Johnny Rockets impressed and exceeded our expectations.

As always, we’d like to extend a hearty thank-you to Kennywood’s Public Relations director Jeff Filicko for allowing us to be part of this event!

GREAT news for anyone needing to get a season pass made for the 2014 season! Kennywood has just announced that it will hold two Season Pass Processing days a full week in advance of opening day. For those with season pass vouchers needing to be processed, mark your calendars for Saturday, April 26 and Sunday, April 27. From 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM, the park will host passholders at the front gate to process their season passes.
We highly recommend attending these days, especially if you plan to visit Kennywood on Opening Day. Trying to get your pass processed on Opening Day has historically been a frustrating experience with extremely long lines, so getting it out of the way early will definitely be nice. This is a great call by the park and goes to show they really do care about guests’ experience.
Last week, KPConnection was given a special look at some of the projects Kennywood has in store for 2014. The biggest news is the construction of Johnny Rockets, but our in-depth tour has a few other interesting things as well!
Click here to check out the full album on our Facebook page. Be sure to read the photo captions, as they contain information we’ve learned about the new Johnny Rockets and other things going on in the park. Also, be sure to join in on the discussion on our forums.
Special thanks to Kennywood’s Public Relations director Jeff Filicko for providing us with this opportunity!
