About Kennywood

Kennywood is America’s Finest Traditional Amusement Park! Located just outside Pittsburgh, PA, Kennywood offers a unique mix of modern thrills and classic rides, including seven roller coasters, a 14-ride Kiddieland, and North America’s second-largest Thomas & Friends™ themed attraction, Thomas Town™. Kennywood’s three wooden coasters have been designated Landmark rides by the American Coaster Enthusiasts (ACE), and join several other attractions as unique Kennywood experiences.

Founded as a trolley park in 1898 and named a National Historic Landmark in 1987, the Kennywood experience goes well beyond the rides, as guests enjoy homemade fudge, Deep Fried Oreos, and Kennywood’s world-famous Potato Patch fries! Learn more about Kennywood.
