Was able to go to Kennywood on the same day. Pittsburgh is built on hills and to get to Kennywood you have to follow these signs that take you through residential areas on winding two lane roads, and across the Allegheny river twice.
Kennywood is a great example of a 100 yr old amusement park, complete opposite of Camden Park. Still have real old rides and some new ones sprinkled in. I have the video of the Jack Rabbit and their bizarre old car ride posted. On the newer car ride they wouldn't let me go on because I was by myself. The operator had the balls to tell me to go find a stranger to ride with. I told him where he could stick his policy. So until they change their policy, they discriminate against people who travel alone. An animal group had some retired greyhounds there that were up for adoption. The old Noahs Ark ride that might be the last of its kind wasn't that great, but the Old Mill ride was changed inside to be 3D with Garfield. Can't remember the name of the hotel I stayed in, but the clerk kept asking me questions about the park.
