1898 - Kennywood's Centennial Year - 1998

Kennywood has several great rollercoasters, including one of the fastest, steepest steel coasters in the world, the Phantom's Revenge. The others are the Thunderbolt, Jack Rabbit, and Racer.

Roller Coasters have always been my favorite.


I did the Sky Coaster for the first time and WOW what a feeling!!
