New Kennywood ride, themed area to open in spring

Spinvasion, a multi-action spin ride with an intergalactic theme, will be the centerpiece of Kennywood’s new Area 412 in the spring.

“Spinvasion is a first of its kind attraction, which offers our guests something they can’t get at any other park in the country,” said Kennywood General Manager Mark Pauls in a news release. “This extra-terrestrial thrill ride is the centerpiece of the all-new alien-inspired Area 412 section of the park. Featuring a massive themed ride backdrop, along with a fresh new look to the Cosmic Chaos and an improved retail shop, this is one giant leap for all Kennywood fans and Season Passholders.”

The ride is set against an interplanetary space mural. Riders strap in to their solo manned aircraft and have the illusion of close encounters.

The new Area 412 will feature upgrades and additions as part of the multi-year park enhancement project celebrating Kennywood’s 125th season in 2023.

Kennywood, along with sister parks Idlewild & SoakZone, plus Sandcasstle Waterpark, will offer Black Friday sales. For more information, CLICK HERE.
