AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Though it's out in the suburbs, 12 miles southeast of downtown Pittsburgh, Kennywood Park is a Pittsburgh classic for kids and families. This amusement park has been around since 1898 and is peppered with an appropriately old-timey theme. Don't get the wrong idea, though. Kennywood has five roller coasters (not counting the water rides). The Phantom's Revenge is one of the fastest in the world—it includes a 230-foot drop you'll scream through at 85 miles per hour. Other attractions include live shows and a nightly Laser Spectacular. Don't miss Kiddieland. Kennywood was actually one of the very first parks in the world to have a special area for children. Parts date back to 1923 (don't worry, they're safe).

  Kennywood is a true gem for amusement park enthusiasts. It is a great convergence of the old and the new with great old wooden roller coasters and modern coasters. One of the most memorable and amazing things about this park is the terrain. Being situated on the side of hill or bluff makes for some really terrain for Kennywood's great roller coasters....   Read More
