Celebrate 125 Years of Fun in 2023

For the past 125 years, Kennywood has been Pittsburgh's hometown destination for timeless fun and cherished memories. The party continues in 2023, we'll be improving the park with exciting new experiences for our guests, including the all-new Spinvasion - the first of its kind in the United States, an enhanced in-park atmosphere and a spectacular lineup of special events.

We look forward to continuing to balance the park's traditional and modern character while creating the next chapter of its story! 

Spinvasion - NOW OPEN!

The all-new Spinvasion puts you in the middle of the Battle for the ‘Burgh! Board your spacecraft for a thrilling flight on the first multi-action spin ride of its kind in the United States. What starts as a classic experience turns into next-level fun as you race parallel to the ground! One moment you crisscross up and down with other pilots, and the next you’re all rolling together in giant waves to defend the city from alien invaders.

Area 412

This new base is where earthlings and friendly extra-terrestrials from planets near and far will prepare for an exciting aerial battle with the evil Crab Bots! Before taking to the skies on Spinvasion, complete your flight training with the cotton candy-loving aliens at Cosmic Chaos and equip yourself with the latest intergalactic apparel at the Area 412 Gift Ship. It’s one out-of-this-world experience after another!



See & Do All That's New

From the moment you arrive, you'll discover new surprises around every corner. Beginning in the parking lot, to the main entrance, and down the Midway, you'll enjoy an entirely new visual experience. This unique blend of classic and modern details will allow Kennywood to remain a one-of-a-kind of destination for decades to come! 

Primanti Bros. Concept Rendering


In 2023, Kennywood partners with Primanti Bros. to create the ultimate fan and guest experience with its first-ever amusement park-based location. In celebration of Kennywood’s 125th and Primanti Bros. 90th birthday, it’s the perfect marriage of two iconic Pittsburgh brands!

The new restaurant is located in Lost Kennywood and features the almost-famous Primanti Bros. sandwiches. Known for their iconic loaded sandwiches, featuring house-made coleslaw, fresh-cut fries, Italian bread, and your meat of choice.
