PITTSBURGH — Kennywood wants your help in naming its newest ride!
The Pittsburgh area theme park is giving its bumper car ride a complete makeover, modeling 20 new cars after its signature treat — Potato Patch fries. With the upgrade set to be ready when the park opens in April, all that’s left is to name the ride — and that’s where the public comes in.
Kennywood opened a Sweepstakes on Tuesday where guests can vote once a day until Feb. 19 on the most a-peeling-ing name for the ride. There are three name options to choose from: Deep Fried Derby, Potato Smash and Speedy Spuds.
“We are thrilled to give our fans the opportunity to help name the new Patch-themed ride and get in on the fun,” said Rick Spicuzza, Kennywood’s assistant general manager. “This new ride encompasses the Kennywood experience we strive to offer our guests, a mix of modern thrills and iconic traditions as we continue the park’s multi-year transformation project.”
One person who casts their vote will win free Potato Patch Fries for a year. Four other winners will get a four-pack of tickets to the park.
Kennywood says the bumper car’s transformation is all part of a multi-year enhancement project meant to keep the park fun and unique for generations to come.
