Jack Rabbit scared the crap out of me the first time I rode. Now that's an old ride with ejector air.

I wish more rides could have such minimal restraints like Jack Rabbit (really all three woodies at Kennywood). I'm sure for insurance and ride manufacturer purposes it's not feasible but I'm glad Kennywood's been able to preserve what makes these rides special. I didn't think any wood coaster could rival El Toro for ejector air but Jack Rabbit's right there with it.

Looks like you guys had a ton of fun! I love how Kennywood keeps the restraints on their roller coasters at a minimum level!

i've only been there once, like 20 years ago. going into that double down on jack rabbit was definitely on oh crap moment. along with sitting on the left on thunderbolt and slamming into the side with my buddy slamming into me on those turns by the midway. lol

i remember being impressed with the splash the Pittsburg* Plunge made. :)

What a great day at Knoebels you guys had, Robb!

And did they just throw a HUGE box of glow stuff at you all,
making it a game of pick and wear as much as you all could?

Talk about having "loose items" on a coaster, lol. The swords looked
especially cool on the coaster run.
Talk is Cheap :idea: Action is Pricele$$

No. We bought it all from their shops.
