The Steel Curtain Rises

Coming to Kennywood in 2019, The Steel Curtain is being called the most anticipated roller coaster of 2019 in many insider circles. Currently set for a midsummer opening, The Steel Curtain is the headlining attraction of Kennywood's new Steelers Country area. With the most inversions of any coaster in North America, including one that's a world-record 197 feet up in the air, Steel Curtain promises to satisfy even the most daring thrill-seekers.

But that's not all: Steelers Country will bring Kennywood's guests into the game of football like never before, with a wide variety of football-themed games and dining experiences that will engage, entertain and deliver a new brand of special Kennywood memories. Look for The Steel Curtain and Steelers Country to open later this summer.

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 eight 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.
