Kennywood Holiday Lights ticket giveaway

My family was invited to visit Kennywood for our first experience at the Holiday Lights. What a cool experience! I have never been to an amusement park in the winter and it was decked out in full holiday spirit! We loved the festive atmosphere with so many Christmas lights and the Christmas music playing throughout the park was enough to  put everyone in a jolly mood.


Holiday Lights is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights from November 28 – December 21, 2014. Hours are 5 – 9pm.

Admission at the Gate: $16.99 (+ $1 amusement tax). Save $2.00 at Giant Eagle or Purchase online for $14.99  ($1.25 processing fee & $1 amusement tax). Kids 2 and under are FREE! Parking is also free in the Kennywood lot. 


There are over 1 million sparkling lights as well as fun, festive opportunities to decorate cookies, ride the Gingerbread Express, visit Santa, and hear choirs singing throughout the park. You'll find hot chocolate and apple cider added to refreshment stands to help you warm up!



Rides in the main park are open on a limited basis, the carousel is open. Kiddieland has up to 8 rides open which kept my kids plenty busy. This is hands down all 4 of my kid's favorite ride! :)


Your kids might also enjoy a special opportunity to have dinner with Santa! Dinner reservations can be made for Dec. 13, 14 or 20. Dinner is an all-you-can-eat buffet from 3:30-4:30 pm with a visit from Santa from 4-4:45 pm. After that you're welcome to enjoy the evening at the Festival of Lights.

The atmosphere! Much of the park is similar to how it was when I was a kid. Taking my own kids there is a trip down memory lane, and I love seeing them enjoy the very same rides I did!

My favorite part of Kennywood is that they have a few rides that a non-roller coaster fan like me can go on.

My favorite part is making memories every time we go with family. My kids haven't been to see the lights yet but I'm sure they would love it.
