Kennywood and the Pittsburgh Steelers are proud to introduce the Steel Curtain! At a maximum height of 220 feet, the colossal steel structure of the coaster serves as a landmark addition to the park and a high-energy entry point welcoming guests to Steelers Country.

During the two-minute adrenaline rush, riders speed through 4,000 feet of track at 76 miles per hour while navigating 9 inversions – including the world’s tallest at 197 feet above the ground!

The Steel Curtain sets three new records: a Pennsylvania state record (tallest roller coaster), a North American record (most inversions), and a world record (tallest inversion).
