^^ & ^^^ YES!!!

Just like Buffalo, Detroit & Cleveland, Pittsburgh is a rust belt, blue collar drinking town and proud of it. I had to laugh when we went to Fantasy Island (which is your traditional family amusement park) a couple of years ago and ordered a Molson Canadian for $6.50. I about crapped when the guy hands me a beer that was about the size of a Big Gulp! :lol:

I said to my partner..."only in Buffalo (and Germany)!!" ;)

Black Widow went vertical yesterday! The park has uploaded an album on Facebook showing the work done.

I'm really liking the spiders leg paint scheme on the supports.

Same paint job, different colors, as Spin Spider at Tusenfryd. Same owner of both parks. My guess would be that this ride, just like the one at Tusenfryd, will receive a sign on each side of the top with Kennywood on them, as well as spider eyes on each side of it, just like Spin Spider.

I didn't think they could fit something that large into Pitt Fall's little tiny area. Well, I was wrong. The paint scheme looks nice. To make up for Pitt Fall, I think Kennywood needs another Pittsburgh themed ride. Nothing much but a black and yellow paint scheme. Nothing too prominent, like Pitt Fall's color scheme wasn't super prominent, it didn't stand out to me. Something like that would be great.

Exactly what i'm hoping for, actually. It's themed without really looking out of place.

And spin spider is an amazing ride, so this being a "Clone" of it is an awesome thing for the park.

I just hope they have better operations than Tusenfryd had at Spin Spider the day I visited.

Donkeys are my way of life!

Black Widow has finally gone vertical. Kennywood has posted a time lapse construction video to their Facebook page.

This long looks like it's going to be a lot larger than I anticipated. It's already looking to dominate the area. Should be interesting to see how the whole thing fits in.
