Swing 146 ft above the ground & experience pure weightlessness.

A spinning pendulum of powerful thrills!

The Black Widow experience starts with riders sitting in outward-facing suspended seats that form a giant circle with a total of 40 riders. With legs dangling freely, each rider is secured with a shoulder restraint. Then the thrill begins.

The giant circle begins to swing in a pendulum motion while rotating counterclockwise. At the peak of the swing, riders will reach a height of 146 feet above the ground and experience that feeling of weightlessness coveted by thrill seekers.

The counterclockwise rotation and pendulum motion create a variety of different sensations depending on a rider’s specific position. The combination of both elements results in a unique ride experience every time!

Black Widow will stand at 90 feet tall and will reach a height of 146 feet in full swing with an angle of 120 degrees from the center. The pendulum motion propels riders back and forth at 68 miles per hour.

While riding Black Widow, guests experience a one-of-a-kind perspective of Lost Kennywood. Whether that's a good or bad thing depends on your appetite for thrills: this ride is not for the weak of heart or spirit!

Can't get enough? Experience all of Kennywood's amusement park roller coasters.
