Kennywood Park is Pittsburgh’s premier destination for summertime fun. Even though Opening Day is six months away, it is never too early to plan. Of course the big news is the opening of Steelers Country, the big, bold, brand-new expansion on the old footprint of the Log Jammer. The highlight of Steelers Country is the wild, record-breaking Steel Curtain coaster, with nine inversions including the world’s highest inversion at 197 feet above the ground. Kids will love the new Thomas Town including Journey with Thomas, and with the opening of Steelers Country Kennywood Park is sure to be big draw next summer.
