Season Pass Processing on April 26-27

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.
