Calendar and Hours

Make every day a Kennywood Day!

Celebrating 120 seasons in 2018, Kennywood is America’s Finest Traditional Amusement. With a mix of modern thrills and classic rides, tasty treats, and some of the world’s best French fries, you’ll find something for everyone at Kennywood.

Kennywood’s Summer Season begins the first weekend in May, with daily operations beginning shortly before Memorial Day and running through late August. Find the day that best fits your schedule, or the discount deals that best fit your wallet! We’ve got plenty of both to go around.

Kennywood's 2018 Summer Season has now concluded. Our Halloween events, Phantom Fright Nights and Happy Hauntings, are separate events for separate audiences, occurring on weekends throughout October. Holiday Lights begins the day after Thanksgiving and runs on weekends until Christmas, plus nightly December 26-30.

Park hours and attraction availability are subject to change without notice.
