    Coming to Kennywood Park in 2019: Steelers Country land, Steel Curtain roller coaster

    Thursday, Jul 19, 2018 12:15 PM

    ‘Steelers Country’ coming to Kennywood

    On Thursday, Kennywood Park announced that Steelers Country, an immersive land that celebrates the Steelers and includes exclusive merchandise, skill games and food locations, as well as a record-breaking roller coaster called “Steel Curtain”, will open in 2019.

    “Being the first park to collaborate with a professional sports franchise on not only a themed area, but also a pulse-pounding, high-flying roller coaster is a great honor that fits in with Kennywood’s longstanding tradition of innovation,” said Kennywood General Manager Jerome Gibas. “For that franchise to be our hometown Steelers, the most successful team in America’s most popular sport, it’s a sure touchdown!”

    Throughout Steelers Country, fans will have the opportunity to join in on familiar game day moments, including running through the team’s entry tunnel, seeing how they measure up in practice drills and checking scores and highlights on Steelers Country’s giant video screen.

    “We are very excited about the partnership with Kennywood,” said Steelers Vice President of Sales and Marketing Ryan Huzjak. “Being able to connect the Pittsburgh Steelers with a family attraction like Kennywood is a natural fit for both organizations, and we are thrilled about the tradition and longstanding history the Steelers and Kennywood provide to families in and around the city of Pittsburgh.

    The towering “Steel Curtain” roller coaster will rule Kennywood’s skyline. With a record-breaking 9 inversions, 197 foot-tall loop, and 220-foot maximum height, “Steel Curtain” is an adrenaline rush like no other, speeding across 4,000 feet of track at 75 miles per hour. Designed by S&S Worldwide, “Steel Curtain” will break a Pennsylvania record (tallest roller coaster), a North American record (most inversions), and a world record (tallest inversion). The colossal steel structure of the coaster will serve as a landmark addition to the park and a high-energy entry point welcoming guests to Steelers Country.

    Along with Huzjak, former Steelers defensive lineman Chris Hoke and Steely McBeam were on hand to celebrate the announcement.

    I wonder where they are going to fit Steelers Country Land? Or, what they will be removing?

    While this is true, we often said, “Kennywood’s open!” instead of “XYZ - eXamine Your Zipper!”

    Yes. Definitely a burgh thing. But I have lived away from there for 30 years. To this day if someone says Kennywood's open, I check my zipper.
