Kick off Summer Family Fun at Kennywood!
If you are from the Pittsburgh area or have ever visited Kennywood, you already know the awesome yellow arrow symbol. 🙂 Kennywood is a family friendly amusement park located outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Kennywood was founded in 1898 as a small trolley park and has grown leaps and bounds since then. They have rides and attractions from ‘mild to wild’ for everyone to enjoy.
I have so many fond memories of Kennywood! I remember visiting it many times throughout my childhood and once as an adult. It’s been a few years since I’ve been to Kennywood, and I can’t wait to go again! We are planning to visit Kennywood in June. It will be the first time my daughters are going to a big amusement park. I know Keira and Natalie are going to have a wonderful time. I can’t wait to make our first family Kennywood memories together.
Keira has already begun browsing the Kennywood website to learn about the different rides, attractions and food venues. She is most looking forward to the water rides and real roller coasters like the classic Jack Rabbit! She hasn’t been on a roller coaster other than little ones at fairs or carnivals, so she is in for a treat. I love that there are so many ride options available for my younger daughter, Natalie, too. She is a little daredevil and I think she is going to have so much fun on the kiddie rides!
While the kids are looking forward to the rides, I’m most looking forward to visiting a beautiful amusement park that holds many memories for me. I can’t wait to see my girls’ faces when they first enter Kennywood. It is going to be such a wonderful day and I can’t wait to share our memories here on the blog next month. Have you ever visited Kennywood? If so, what’s your favorite memory?

This is amazing! I love Kennywood! Pittsburgh bloggers unite!
It is amazing! I’m so excited to go. 😀
Hopefully my fiancee will get a day off of work so that we can actually go! I haven’t been in ages.
I hope so! 🙂 I haven’t been there in probably 6 or 7 years.
who is Kennywood named after? Kenny Rodgers?
I have never been there but it looks like a lot of fun!
You know, I’m not sure who/what it’s named after, but I don’t think it’s Kenny Rogers. That would be fun though. 🙂
It is a bunch of fun!
Kennywood looks like it’s a blast. We have something similar to us called Magic Springs and Cyrstal Falls.
If we ever find ourselves in Penn. we will have to check it out.
Can’t wait to here about your day there.
Those places sound fun! I really enjoy the amusement parks that aren’t big chains. So unique and interesting.
I miss Kennywood SO much. Thanks for this post and bringing back great memories. My family and I used to go every summer, now they go without me. What a bummer!
Aww! Hope you make it back to visit Kennywood soon. We are really excited to go, as I haven’t been there for years and my girls have never been.
I’ve never been, but looks like so much fun!
It is a ton of fun! Lots of things to do.
I would love to take my grandchildren to Kennywood. It looks like a unique, magical place!
They would have a blast, Diane! It really is unique and so much fun!
you look like you had a great time 😀
We had a lot of fun!!
This park looks like fun. I better hurry before it is too hot.
The day we went was perfect! Partly cloudy and in the low-mid 80s. Warm, but we didn’t have the sun on us the whole time. Perfect day for the water rides.
I love Kennywood. Thanks for the code!!
You’re welcome! 🙂
wow Id never heard of kennywood before this. it looks like a fun place to go
It really is! I love that it’s been around so long…it’s neat to see rides that have been around (though updated) for decades!
I wish this was closer to us because I love places like Kennywood! It looks like a great lace to have some family fun and adventure!
This park seems to fun! Haven’t been to an amusement park in years.
Oh my gosh that look like so much fun! That looks like a great place to take the kids I know yours are going to love it. I wish we lived closer I would take my kids!
My kids had such a great time! I’ll be posting about our visit soon. It’s a great park for kids, Stephanie! Hope someday you’re in the area and can take yours. 🙂
I am happy you enjoyed every single moment !
Thanks so much, Bianca!
This looks like a lot of fun
It looks like a lot of fun.
I’ve never been to Kennywood, nor have I ever heard of it. The park sounds like a lot of fun. I like its great weather guarantee.
I love that, too, Pam! We visited on a partly cloudy day that had a chance of thunderstorms, and I wasn’t worried at all! I knew we would be covered if we got rained out.
It looks like a great time!! It reminds me of a place we have here called Western Playground, or when I was a kid and we went to Six Flags Over Texas every summer.
You guys look like you had a great time. Thank you for sharing this code with us.
Wow, that is a lot of roller coasters! I would love to go there. My daughter would love the Steel City Choppers for sure! Might be our next small flight!
