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).
