Kennywood usually closes at 10:00 p.m., but may close earlier or later based on factors including weather conditions. Park closing time is determined each afternoon and announced in the early evening hours. Some rides close before the announced closing time

Limited Operation

As the summer comes to a close and students return to school, Kennywood begins preparing for its Halloween spectacular, Phantom Fright Nights. Select Park attractions may not be available during limited operations, as they are converted into haunted attractions for Fright Nights. If you are planning a visit in late August or September, be aware that some rides, food stands or other attractions may not be available for all or part of your day at Kennywood.
