Kennywood

Redirected from Kennywood Park

Kennywood is an amusement park in West Mifflin[?], Pennsylvania, regarded by roller coaster connosieurs as one of the finest in the world. It features a number of old wooden rollercoasters still in working order, along with newer steel coasters and other rides.

Kennywood began in 1898 as a trolley park[?] that catered to local industrial workers and their families. From its origin as a working-class picnic destination, the park grew in the first half of the twentieth century into a popular entertainment site that combined technological thrill rides with recreation venues like swimming pools and dance halls.
