This is a bit of an off-topic post because of all the 2019 hype, but in just over a week, I'll be kicking off my summer trip at Kennywood on Sunday the 15th. How should crowds be? Is there a good itinerary for how to get each credit, and are there any notable non-coaster rides that I should check out?
I haven't been but I can tell you that Kennywood definitely has some non-coasters worth riding. The flats that come to mind are Kangaroo and Turtle, but people who know the park better can definitely tell you some more, including dark rides and probably some more flats that slipped my mind.
1. Fury 325 | 2. Millennium Force | 3. New Texas Giant | 4. Outlaw Run | 5. Maverick | 6. Twisted Cyclone | 7. Iron Rattler | 8. The Voyage | 9. Goliath (SFGAm) | 10. Time Traveler
The Whip is fun, Noah's Ark is unique. Garfield's Nightmare is strange but the ride itself has history to it. The Tumble Bug (Turtle) is ok but not as good as the one at Conneaut. Bayern Kurve is a lot of fun too. If it's hot Pittsburgh Plunge is a good way to cool off.
Kangaroo, Ghostwood Estates, Bayurn Kurve, Noah's Ark, Paratrooper, Whip, are must do.
Garfield's nightmare, is historic, and is awful, but I'd also say it's must do, as is Turtle. . just because it's among the last operating in the States (even tho it's kind of boring). . . be prepared to be randomly shouting out "TURRRRTLE" the rest of the day tho, as that is sent over the speakers while you're riding, and it gets in your head, man.
also don't skip Black Widow, and I've heard the Screaming Swing there is good (we didn't ride it).
in terms of attacking the coasters themselves? upon entry, go to the left, past Phantom and hit Exterminator FIRST. Indoor spinning mouse, with some good theming, that will stack a huge line quickly. seriously.. head there first.
