Did you know that one of the ways you can track your kids growth is by visiting amusement parks each summer? ☺
Our family has enjoyed attending Kennywood each summer for the past few years. When we started, we went directly to Kiddieland and they rode to their hearts content! Now that our kids are more in the 5-8yo range, we've started being able to enjoy more of the park as our kids get taller and more adventurous. We've watched their heights creep up each year and seen big smiles explode across their face when they are declared tall enough for some of the "big kid" rides.
Kennywood is America’s Finest Traditional Amusement Park. The Pittsburgh-area park offers a unique mix of classic rides and modern thrills, including six roller coasters, a 14-ride Kiddieland, and several attractions that cannot be found anywhere else. Founded as a trolley park in 1898 and named a National Historic Landmark in 1987, Kennywood continues to provide unforgettable fun for all ages. Enjoy everything from tasty funnel cakes, Deep Fried Oreos to Kennywood’s world-famous Potato Patch fries!
There are 14 Kiddieland rides and we have rarely had much of a line wait. Especially if you go on a weekday, chances are your kids will be able to get on rides very quickly. And all the parents said "HALLELUJAH!" :) :)
This turtle roller coaster is the perfect stepping stone from Kiddieland to bigger rides.
While my kids haven't been ready to brave the biggest rides yet, there are certainly plenty of thrills for older kids/adults as well!
