Kennywood is celebrating their 120th season, and I had to go check out the fun, from when I was a kid. My 7 year old, son, had a blast. He loved Noah’s Ark the most. A walk through attraction, at the park. I had forgotten how much fun Noah’s Ark was, til Jacob took our family through it. I can’t get over how Kennywood has changed through the years. I used to go there, when I was in High School, and now it seems different but the same, in so many ways.
Jacob also liked the bikes, in Kiddieland. We waited a while to ride them, but he had fun. All the rides in Kiddieland, Jacob enjoyed.
Thomas Town is the newest attraction, at Kennywood. It was packed in that section of the park. There’s a cute ride, for your child and you, that you can put out the fire in Thomas Town. There’s also the train ride, and a few others. My family really enjoyed themselves at Thomas Town, and the rest of the park.
Kennywood has always been my favorite place to go, in our area. The roller coasters are great, and the rides for the kids are cool too. Jacob enjoyed himself, as did my parents, wife and myself. It was so much fun, that we can’t wait to go back again.
Next year, the Steel Curtain will be their newest ride. Construction has already started, and we can’t wait to ride it.
This year, it was Phantom’s Revenge, the big ride. And, the Thunderbolt. The Thunderbolt has always been one of my favorites.
You can even ride, or just get wet, on The Pittsburgh Plunge. Jacob loved standing there, as the boat went down, he’d jump back, so he wouldn’t get as wet, but he still got wet. We had so much fun, you can have that amount of fun too. And, if you can’t walk long distances, you can rent Kenny’s Kabanas, and sit there for a little while. Your family will know where to find you.
You can get discounted tickets through this link. And, you will have a fun time too.
We are actually sure that we are all getting season passes for next season. For Seniors (55+) it’s only $54.99. That’s a great value for my parents.

We will be enjoying Kennywood on July 28. Thomas Town will be opened, and we are going to have so much fun. Make sure you plan to join us at Kennywood some time this summer. You’ll love it. Even if you haven’t been there for years, the memories will be everlasting.
There’s even a coloring sheet, if you click on Thomas Town, on the Kennywood page.
We have made this a tradition, in our family, and we are not disappointed. Kennywood’s Holiday Lights Show is Fantastic this year. They are exceptionally great this time around. We even got close to Santa Claus, with no long line. We were able to see him, and Jacob just adored that part of the trip.
Santa will be here in a few short weeks, and if you haven’t already, go to see the Holiday Lights at Kennywood. You will love it, whether you have little ones, or not. We, of course, got some toys, for Jacob to bring home. They are really cool, and were inexpensive. The tree has a strobe light on the bottom, and it reflects off of everything. Really Cool, Kennywood!
Seeing Santa, and Christmas Kenny The Kangaroo, was the first thing we did, in the park. We wanted to get there, before the line got too long. So we got there at 5:45 pm. We were there with a few more people, but the wait was so short. Usually the line is really long, to see Jolly Old Saint Nick. We were in and out, within 15 minutes. Jacob loved being able to tell Santa what he wants for Christmas. This was a highlight of our trip. And, Jacob is usually scared of Santa, but this one made his night.
We went through Kiddyland, and Jacob got to ride a few rides. He really enjoyed his time at Kennywood. Kiddyland is his favorite section, and the lines weren’t long there either. We got really lucky this year. Usually we wait a while to get Jacob on the rides, and then wait while Jacob rides the rides. Jacob usually gets bored with the wait. I’m sure it had to do with the fact the temperature was only 22 degrees, when we were at Kennywood.
They do have heating stations, so you can get the feeling back to parts of your body. The cooling stations are really nice, and it only takes seconds to get warmed up. You can also get Pizza, or Potato Patch Fries, along with a delicious Hot Cocoa. The Hot Cocoa was my favorite part of the trip. It was so delicious. I don’t know why I can’t make it like that at home. And, while I was drinking it, I stayed nice and warm.
The way Kennywood is all lit up, is Fantastic. It really is an enjoyable site to see, this time of year. With no long wait lines. We were there for 2 hours, and got to see the entire park. Open rides were really cool too. My husband, and son, as well as my Mother in Law, and Father In Law, really enjoyed themselves. Our pictures will last a lifetime, but we will have to go again next year to see some more great lights, and enjoy more rides, with Jacob. While he’s young, and still believes, this is so much fun. We will even enjoy after that, because my 20 year old, daughter, still loves going to Kennywood Holiday Lights.
The big tree is always our favorite picture. What a fantastic site. You can see that we aren’t the only ones that love this picture. Others are taking the same photo.
Make sure you get your tickets and go tonight. Or, any weekend between now and the end of the month.
You can enjoy Holiday Lights, at Kennywood, with a discount. Through This Frugal Family, get a great discount. You will have as much fun as our family does, yearly, when you go see Kennywood’s Holiday Lights display. The best lights in the area.
You can also see the Nutcracker, Rudolph, a Snowman, Gingerbread man, but most importantly, Santa Claus is there too.
If you have little ones, Kiddyland is also opened. You can take the kids, and they can enjoy the rides. My son, age 6, has loved Kennywood since he was about 3. We have gone to the Holiday Lights 4 times. And, I can’t wait to go this year.
Watch for an upcoming review of the Holiday Lights.
Kennywood Park, in Pittsburgh, PA had their Comic Con on June 18, 2017. As we walked in, we saw The Flash and Supergirl standing at a booth and didn’t hesitate to get our picture with them! As we walked through the park, we saw booths of comic books, jewelry, art, and much more! In one of the pavilions, artists were set up with art and jewelry. It was awesome getting to see and purchase some of the art. These artists were all very talented and each had a unique twist on the styles they drew in.
We went around the park and rode a lot of the rides, from the Jack Rabbit to the Merry Go Round. We made sure to play some games, too! The ping pong game was always my favorite, so I made sure to play that a lot!
We had some potato path fries for lunch and stopped at another booth to get some mac n cheese. The food has always been one of my favorite parts are Kennywood. It’s been a family favorite, for many years. My mom and dad were coming here a long time before me, and my family will come here for years to come, as well.
There’s always shows going on, throughout the day, as well. It’s so much fun going to an Amusement Park to watch a show, or two. We loved the time we had.
My mom and dad always take my 6 year old, brother, to Kiddieland. He loves it in there, and the rides are perfect for him. However, he’s getting big enough, that he can enjoy some of the other rides, throughout the park, as well.
They also have face painting, and other things. There’s a few gift shops, and lots of Rollercoasters. You will enjoy your day at Kennywood, just as I have.
