Founded in 1898 at the terminus of the Monongahela Street Railway trolley line, the park quickly grew into a favorite summertime destination. Kennywood is unique in that it is one of the country's few successful trolley parks. In 1987, Kennywood was designated a National Historic Landmark and is known today as America's Finest Traditional Amusement Park. Many unique rides and attractions have distinguished Kennywood over the years. Some old favorites, such as the Rockets, Laff in the Dark, Ghost Ship, and Skooters, are long gone. Others, such as the Old Mill, Noah's Ark, Auto Race, Turtle, Whip, and Grand Carousel, still entertain guests today. Kennywood is perhaps best known for its impressive collection of roller coasters, from earlier coasters such as the Figure Eight, Speed-O-Plane, and Pippin to the Racer, Jack Rabbit, Thunderbolt, and Phantom's Revenge coasters that still thrill riders today....

    I live in eastern Ohio, very close to Pittsburgh, PA. I have fond memories of visiting the Kennywood Amusement park when I was younger. My boyfriend and I were able to take our daughters to Kennywood last summer. This book is filled with illustrations of Kennywood's earlier days, along with lots of information about its growth since being built in the 1890s. As someone who has visited Kennywood several times, this was an enjoyable read. I liked the trip down memory lane and the author shared lots of photos and information I otherwise might not know.
