I finally made it to the legendary Kennywood Amusement Park. After hearing a lot of great things about it, I am glad to report that it is a great place.

Around 10:30 yesterday Gwyn pulled up to the house, with her windows open yelling (which is unusual for her) "WE ARE GOING TO KENNYWOOD!!!!!!!!!" AAAAHHHHH!!!! KENNYWOOD!!!!!!" I knew I was in for a good day. We hit every major ride, and enjoyed all of them. We were expecting it to be really crowded given that it was a Saturday in the middle of the summer, but it was surprisingly calm. The longest we waited in line was 20 minutes.

Sorry I don't have any pictures. We knew that we were going to go on 'wet rides' so we were prepared. I only had my wallet, in a ziplock bag in my back pocket. Needless to say, I went under a waterfall and was thoroughly soaked. Given that it was hotter than I would have liked it, the water felt nice.

Over all I would place this park way above Silverwood, but don't worry Auntie Donna, nothing can touch the happiest place on earth. One of the surprising things about Kennywood was how relatively inexpensive it was. Especially the food. It is a great place to relax and enjoy the fun.

Favorite Ride: Phantom's Revenge or the Sky Rocket (the two steel roller coasters in the park, both were great)
