    Coaster VIP pass is like half the price of a regular fun day ticket and totally worth it. Know that some coasters have a height requirement of 52", so beware when purchasing for kids.

    It was very pretty and the light show was great. Long lines at the few rides open and staff were a bit rude. We bought a souvenir cup for 10 bucks that promised free refills but every place was out.

    Phantom's Revenge is definitely the star here. It's built into the natural geography, at one point following a cliff down through its own structure and below the level of the rest of the park.

    Holiday lights was a nice little shindig. But if your child(ren) are under two years old and it is freezing like it was on 12/15/2013, please stay home or find a sitter. It was way too cold.

    It's not the biggest amusement park but it definitely aims to please. So many roller coasters! And don't leave without getting some Potato Patch fries!!

    I love that you can bring your own food inside to eat at your leisure. The entrance fee for one day is completely reasonable.

    More of a full day sort of activity, this is a really classic amusement park like a Coney Island or Old Cedar Point. Went here every summer.

    Great park. Easier to het on rides than Cedar Point. Need more adult rides with newer more exciting options. But great for the kiddos.

    Buy a souvenir cup! It's totally worth the money: 99 cent refills every time and you can even bring it with you if you go to Kennywood multiple times this summer.

    Showing up on days with bad weather usually means shorter waits, but the park may also close early.
