Steel Curtain Trains have Arrived!


Trains for the new Steel Curtain roller coaster at Kennywood have arrived at the park!

One of the most anticipated rides of 2019 is one step closer to opening. Trains arrived to the park this past weekend and are currently being loaded onto the track on a rainy Northeast day.

The coaster only has lap restraints which should create a free-feeling experience.
Kennywood has not set an opening date for the new coaster yet, and trackwork is not complete just yet on the S&S-manufactured ride. Once open, Steel Curtain will take the record for most inversions on a roller coaster in the United States, tallest inversion in the world, and tallest coaster in Pennsylvania!
