What to Know Before You Go

Your safety, and the safety of our team members, is always our top priority. To ensure a seamless entry into the park and for the most enjoyable visit possible, we’ve enhanced our security procedures for the 2023 season. We are fully confident in our plan, and we want to help you be prepared before you visit the park.

Chaperone Policy

Guests aged 17 and under must be accompanied by an adult at least 21 years of age (with valid ID) to enter the park after 4:00 p.m.

Entrance Policy

All guests pass through our weapons detection system, which uses advanced digital sensors, at the front gate. Signage is in place to inform guests they are entering a security screening area.

Bag & Cooler Policy

Kennywood allows one bag up to 15" x 15" x 15" or soft cooler up to 12” x 12” x 12” per guest into the park and all food and beverages must fit within the bag size. No alcohol or glass containers will be permitted.

Perimeter Enhancements

Park teams have cut down trees along the fence line bordering Route 837 to improve sight lines. New floodlights and state-of-the-art security cameras equipped with artificial intelligence have been installed for better monitoring, and ongoing security patrols in that area have been increased during operating hours. Our team is currently in the process of upgrading the park fence even further. This work will be completed by the start of the 2023 season.

Increased Police Support

In addition to our security team, we doubled the number of police officers contracted through local law enforcement agencies.

We regularly evaluate our safety procedures, for the most up-to-date information on all our park rules and policies, please visit Park Rules.
