The roller coaster will feature a US-record nine inversions on 4,000 feet of track. Steel Curtain also will rise to 220 feet and hit a maximum speed of 75 mph when it opens next year. S&S Worldwide will give us a first look at Steel Curtain's trains when it official unveils the coaster model next week at the IAAPA Attractions Expo in Orlando. In the meantime, you can get a preview of Steel Curtain from Kennywood's "First Look" animated POV video:
Steel Curtain will anchor the new Steelers Country land in the park, creating the first major US theme park land themed to a professional sports franchise. In case you missed it, we talked with design director Rick O'Connell about the new land in our discussion last week about sports-themed attractions around the world.
Stay tuned for our coverage of Steel Curtain from IAAPA next week, following through to its opening next year.Tweet
