Kennywood Connection was fortunate enough to be at the Grand Opening of Black Widow yesterday! We were among the very first to ride, along with members of American Coaster Enthusiasts and various Pittsburgh media. The ride seems to be a huge hit! Everyone came off with a huge smile on their face, and everyone had something positive to say about the experience! Black Widow is sure to be one of Kennywood’s most popular rides for years to come.
Kennywood Connection was fortunate to be able to tour the Black Widow construction site and several other areas of the park this week. To see the pictures, visit our Facebook Photo Album.
