Kennywood Park is the epitome of the old-time trolley park. In addition to its nationally-ranked roller coasters (the Thunderbolt, the Racer, Jackrabbit, Phantom's Revenge, and Exterminator), Kennywood is equally known for quirky rides like Noah's Ark, a fun house that rocks as if on the open waters, and the Kangaroos, a cyclical ride that gives even the youngest of riders a little thrill.
Ticket prices are going up a little too quickly, in my opinion; however, the park is trying to update and restore old rides. It's one of the few remaining parks with a designated picnic area, so you can bring your basket into the park through a special entrance. Plan on spending an entire day at the park, but you won't need much more than that.
