Thanks for the link Samuel. Fun to see the park and people back then. ( lordy, those hair styles !) Huge video cameras, no cell phones, and things getting "slippy" after the rain.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Great photos! Such an exciting new coaster. Really makes Kennywood look even more interesting than it already was. I just hope it accommodates larger riders so if I try to go ride it this year I will be okay but there is 0 precedent for it right now.

This thing is such a tangled mess of steel. It looks great.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

I am trying to temper my excitement because I do kinda fear Steel Curtain will be a flop, but I cant help myself from being excited, esp as pics are coming out.

OK so Im deff going in June (I have to assume the ride will be open then). Does anyone know what crowds are like a weekend in early June? The 8th or 9th.
If its expected to be crowded is there a fast pass type thing and is it worth it? I thought I saw some people using it when I went last year, and that weekend, in Sept the park was VERY crowded. So much so the lines were at a standstill for most everything and with limited time I left early having missed some of the rides there: Extermintator, Jack Rabbit and Racer which didnt seem to be running.
Top 10 Steel: Steel Vengeance, Wicked Cyclone, Fury 325, Millennium Force, Storm Chaser, Skyrush, Maverick, Goliath (SFoG), I305, Lightning Run
Top 10 Wood: Voyage, Phoenix, El Toro, Boulder Dash, Mystic Timbers, Lightning Racer, Grizzly (KD), Legend, Raven, Beast


Yummy! I just ate donkey!
