NEW FOR 2017: Happy Hauntings

Kennywood’s Happy Hauntings is a kid-friendly Halloween event on Saturday's and Sundays throughout the month of October from 12:00pm - 4:00pm. The entire park is transformed into a Halloween spook-tacular festival where Pumpkins replace flowers and cornstalks sprout up throughout the park. Young riders can enjoy Kiddieland and favorites such as the Merry-Go-Round, Auto Race and Jack Rabbit. Plus hay rides, pumpkin decorating, and more! This event is geared for children under 10. Children may dress in costumes – some costumes may not be permitted on select rides. Click Here.
