Well color me excited. By chance are they using ETF's Mystic Mover?
The park needs a lot. Having grown up here in Pittsburgh, you can only go to Kennywood so many times before it gets boring, especially when we spend 10 days @ Disney and usually a weekend or two at Cedar Point.
Kennywood just simply isn't exciting anymore. The problem (IMO) is they've tried to keep up with the times and the big dollar parks, but haven't quite made it. On top of that, since they've tried doing this, they lost the "old time" feel that parks like Idlewild have, putting them by themselves.
The park is maybe 15 minutes from my house and I haven't been in a year or two. They still have some good old coasters though. Thunderbolt and Jack Rabbit are quite good, albeit rough. I can't figure out why they "removed" the Steel Phantom and modified it into the "Phantom's Revenge". The coaster lost all of it's appeal.
Anyhow, Larry you have an incoming PM in a moment.
