Rides For the Teens
Phantom's Revenge- This one is HUGE, so you will most likely not have your little ones riding it. The teens, however, should love it. It is tall, long, fast, and an exilerating ride full of big time air hills.
The Exterminator- If your little ones are taller than 46" (3'10") then this is a coaster your whole family can ride. It is an indoor dark ride style coaster, and around every turn, your car spins out of control making the ride even more fun!
Jack Rabbit- A Kennywood classic, this one is one for everyone to ride. This 1921 wooden roller coaster should be a fun experience for your family.
Racer- Again, like Jack Rabbit, a wooden roller coaster your whole family can ride but, like Exterminator, the little ones must be 46".
Thunderbolt. This a big wooden coaster intended for a thrilling experience. Definitely mostly for your teens.
Sky Rocket- This coaster is brand new to Kennywood, and definitely a thrilling ride for your teens, but not so much for the little ones.
Well it seems I've run out of time to finish, but I'll come back with ride for the little ones and a more definitive list of rides for the entire family.
For the food....Kennywood might be the best park to eat. There is no sit down dinning in the park but there are tons of food stands. The potato Patch is legendary in the Pittsburgh area. I recommend While walking around check out the different food stands, each serves up something different(Fries, taco salads, hoagies, gyros deep fried Oreos,Corn dogs are just some of my favorites). we take at least 2 trips a year there to just eat.
It's a great family park to visit. I grew up at Kennywood and its still one of my favorite places to visit.
TIPS ON VISITING PITTSBURGH:
we have a different vocabulary here.
sandwich = sammich
did you eat yet = Jeet-Jet
soda = pop

how tall you have to be to get on a ride - bigger then Jeter
to sum it up is like this..Jeet-Jet? um a grab a sammich while yinz guys get gyros n pops. Then I'm a go on the thunderbolt but you can't cause your no bigger then Jeter!!!
