    Kennywood rollercoasters rank BIG

    It’s almost summertime and that means another season to love Pittsburgh’s beloved amusement park!

    Kennywood is the home of two of the tallest and scariest rollercoasters in the state.

    The state tourism office put out the ranking with the Thunderbolt in 10th place and the fastest coaster on the list – Phantom’s Revenge coming in third.

    Visit PA ranked Hershey Park’s Skyrush as No. 1 – but watch out because Kennywood’s Steel Curtain could give the other coasters on the list a run for their money when it’s completed.
