Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (Abbreviation: KW)
Park News - (10/7/15) Screamscape received official word from Kennywood that Phantom's Revenge is officially back up and running for Phantom Fright Nights. For the moment, it is only running at 1-Train operation, so the lines may be longer than normal, but they do hope to get it back up to 2-Train Operation sometime this month.
(9/17/15) Kennywood posted on Twitter way back on Aug. 25th that Phantom's Revenge was having a "mechanical issue" and it's still closed. No telling on how much longer it will be, though I’m hering they are hoping to get it back up in time for Phantom Fright Nights if at all possible.
(9/16/15) Anyone know what the current status of Phantom's Revenge is at Kennywood? I've been told from a reader that it has been closed for the last week or more, and an employee told them that they are waiting on some kind of part needed to fix it, and it may be awhile before it arrives. If anyone can confirm or correct this report, please do let me know what the latest word is, otherwise it looks as if Phantom could possibly be down for Phantom Fright Nights.
(7/6/15) In an unfortunate news story a 26 year-old woman at Kennywood on July 4th was struck by a stray bullet in the chest/shoulder area around 10:10 pm. According to the investigation they believe that the bullet was likely fired into the air by a reckless 4th of July party in the region. As they say, what goes up, must come down, and its just sad that there are so many people with guns who can't seem to grasp this.
2016 - Noah’s Ark Renovation and New Volcano - Confirmed - (10/7/15) Kennywood's famous Noah's Ark attraction won the Golden Ticket award for Best Funhouse/Walkthrough Attraction a few weeks ago and to follow up on this, Kennywood has confirmed that the attraction will be updated and renovated for the 2016 season. The park has also confirmed that their aging Volcano (Enterprise) ride is indeed being replaced with the reliable version being removed from Lake Compounce in time for the 2016 season as well.
(9/14/15) According to several sources, Kennywood is currently removing the park's Volcano to retire the ride, however they are planning to replace it by next season with the Enterprise that will be removed from Lake Compounce.
(9/10/15) While this isn't the first time we've seen this happen over the years, a reader sent in photos showing the Volcano ride (Enterprise I believe) being taken completely apart. Not sure if this is just for an another extensive off-season repair or if they are planning on retiring the ride. If anyone knows more, please do let us know.
