PHOTO TR: Delgrosso's Amusement park

Postby thrillrider » Thu Dec 19, 2013 4:32 pm

We took this trip to the park a few years ago, so the pictures are also a few years old.

Delgrosso's amusement park is located about an hour north of kennywood in west mifflin PA. It is not the worlds biggest and best park, but it was a lot of fun in the short amount of time we spent there. We actually made a pit stop to the park on the way home from Knobles park, and I am glad we did. I would deffinatly recommend checking this little park out if your in the area. It has a decent selection of rides, and a small waterpark for those hot summer days.

Admision to the park was free, and you can either buy an armband or tickets for the rides. We chose the tickets as we only had a short amount of time in the park. I can't remember how much the tickets were, but it was not that much and we were able to ride everything we wanted. The food was awsome. I would recommend the spaggetti, as the owners of the park also own a spaggetti sauce factory. It was delicious.

Onto the pictures.....

Nice little TR. looks like a decent little park.

I especially liked the well priced food. Assuming PA sales taxes aren't 200%, they are way better than most parks.

Thanks for sharing.
I'm a "High Roller" at the "Excalibur". That's why they let me do the "Wild Thing" like a "Renegade". It beats using a "Corkscrew" to "Steel Venom" from a "Mad Mouse"

DelGrosso's Sauce + Enterprise = VOMIT!

This is a nice park.

Some good flat rides, but it's really all about the sauce.

Does anybody know if they are still planning on building the corkscrew coaster? The last that I had heard, was that they had it in storage.

Those food prices are super reasonable, and I hear their pizza rivals Cesari's at Knoebel's. Not a bad looking little park.

Not only was the price good, but so was the food.

DelGrosso's pizza is far superior to Cesari's

They sent it off to Gloria's Fantasyland in Philippines. Under construction at the moment. http://rcdb.com/10581.htm

Always great to see some photos of the home park. The park is a nice place to walk around and spend a bit of time there, especially with their newer ARM drop tower.

That's a bummer.

Any idea why they decided not to install it? Seems like it would have been a great fit for the park.
