This certainly is a unique-looking roller coaster. Interested to see the finished product.

This might be a stupid question but is Primers track (Sky Rocket) manufactured by the same place that's doing this track for S&S?

So what crowds can be expected for a weekend in early June? Would sat or sun make any difference?

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.

We used it in July last year. We walked on every ride. However, be aware that there are only a couple middle rows reserved for the fast pass. I'd go for it will Steel Curtain.

I wish I could say how it helped us out throughout the entire day, but after being in the park for a few hours an hour long storm moved in. The park closed for the remaining six hours, despite it being one of the most beautiful evenings of our week long PA trip. Didn't even get to ride Thunderbolt. With that being our one and only experience, we're not big Kennywood fans. $300 down the shitter.

good to know. I'm hoping it wont be necessary in June but it will be a weekend... I feel ya my experience there was not so great either. Some here warned me that therides dont open till 11 so I was prepared but it was stilk kind of annoying. Nothing to do but pick a ride to wait 30 minutes for to open when really it would've been a walk on... And at least when I went not all opened at once. Racer didnt till later and some rides opened up kinda whenever as well. Was annoying and meant huge lines. Huge. I didnt get on jack rabbit as the line was massive and only had a few hours and the line was moving like a snail. Exterminator closed down and Sky Rocket was down all year so I missed half their coasters basically, and for a pricier than expected ticket and how lackadaisical the park seemed I was less than thrilled... Its closeness to Cedar Point and steel curtain is why I'm returning.
