  1. End Zone Cafe did open (and the food was quite good in my opinion!), but not the experience building or games. Even if they do get Steel Curtain open this year, the experience building still won't open due to social distancing restrictions.
  2. That is correct... you will need a partner for Thunderbolt and it must be someone you traveled to the park with. Also of note, if you plan to ride Pittsburg Plunge or Raging Rapids (if it opens) you need to store your mask in a zip-lock bag while you ride and keep it with you... so be sure to bring one to the park with you.
  3. Sadly, CLP will not be opening this year. They just sent this email out and also posted the notice to Facebook.
  4. The event earlier in the day, Happy Hauntings, may not interest you unless you have kids with you. They have things like a hayride, hay maze, a trick-or-treating trail, and a bunch of the kiddie rides open plus a few others like the MGR, Paratrooper, etc. They did have Jack Rabbit open last year... not sure if the coaster selection will differ at all this year.
  5. "Giant Eagle" is the grocery store that sells slightly discounted tickets, while supplies last. There's one right up the hill from the park. https://www.gianteagle.com/stores/pa/west-mifflin/west-mifflin-giant-eagle/29 https://www.kennywood.com/discounts
  6. I'm pretty certain the pricing in the park is the same as online.
  7. 1) There is a preferred parking section for $7 and there is also tons of free parking if you don't mind what's a very short walk / escalator ride compared to the amount of walking around the park you'll do in a day anyways. 2) The chair lift operates on very busy days when the third level parking lot is getting high use, which isn't very often. However, I expect that once Steel Curtain opens it will happen a lot more often. I love the view from that ride!! 3) We still have our rapids ride, minus the big waterfall... but I still think it's quite enjoyable and personally am actually more
  8. ^^ You forgot Waldameer's Chaos getting stuck upside-down for a couple minutes as well! ^ I wouldn't count on it by the sounds of it, unfortunately.
  9. Sky Rocket's issue has nothing to do with the wheels. I can't speak for Phobia. Sent from my Galaxy S10+ using Tapatalk
  10. I believe there are two track pieces remaining. I just received word from someone at the park that they are working today, despite some rainy weather! I'm guessing vertical construction should be complete either today or tomorrow.
  11. What design flaw are you suggesting Steel Curtain has?
  12. Progress as of yesterday! Sent from my Galaxy S10+ using Tapatalk
  13. I honestly don't think they know yet... but as you would imagine, they'd want to get it open ASAP. I'm going to KennyKon on July 20th, and they have Steel Curtain ERT on the schedule but with a disclaimer:
  14. Nice! That's good to hear... there were a couple years where Streak wasn't quite ready for opening day/weekend. With this year's trackwork plus the new wheels on the train, it should be running great!
  15. Everything is looking great!! I can't wait to visit this weekend. How's trackwork on Blue Streak coming along?
  16. And let's not forget we'll be going upside down NINE times in those open seats with lapbars including once at 197 feet in the air!!
  17. Maybe this is just me, but that doesn't sound at all appealing... lol.
  18. I'll be there (which is probably not surprising)! I was there on 3/20 as well for the media tour, so it should be interesting to see the progress in person!
  19. On my fan site in the revision history, the furthest back I can pull a price for is 2014 when gate prices were $40.99. $41.99 for 2015, $43.99 for 2016, $44.99 for 2017, and $48.99 for 2018. I really think they're just trying to push everyone to get season passes. Edit: I updated my site with this year's pricing... I think it's a little easier to compare all of the prices than on kennywood.com https://www.kpconnection.com/park-information/
  20. Keep in mind too that Kennywood offers free parking (in addition to the paid section) which is very rare for an amusement park of its size.
  21. It's on the third level of the parking lot, which rarely opens. It has to be pretty insanely busy before they open it, to the point where I've been to the park on occasions when I literally can't find a single free parking spot but it's still not open. I guess that's their way to try and force people into paid parking? With Steelers Country opening, I wouldn't be surprised to see in in use much more this year.
  22. Very nice pictures! I see myself in a few of them [emoji1787] Can't wait to ride in a couple months! Sent from my Galaxy S10+ using Tapatalk
