**COPIED FROM COASTERBUZZ** to test with images

I visited Kennywood for their cold and damp passholder preview day and again the following weekend on a hot and sunny Saturday. Last year started very poorly but things improved throughout the year and overall it ended up being a great year for Kennywood. During the off season they announced some improvements to the park experience. That's mostly what I am going to talk about.

The entrance looks great! It's no longer bombed out pavement with mangled highway guide rails. They paved the walkway with red brick and used a black railing to keep the cars in the parking lot. The also reconfigured the entrance. You now purchase tickets at the front of the ticket booths rather than the sides and they moved the security check which is now just a quick walk through, to the center of the ticket booths. It's all very nice.

They spruced up the midways quite a bit. They have little touches like the yellow pennants seen here, added some paint in places, and all of the gardens are weed free.

My favorite change has to be the Potato Patch. Gone are the individual lanes. They now have two individual queues where you walk up, pick up the fries you want, and pay at the end. They need to work out some of the logistics but it's a huge improvement.

New nicely branded signage has popped up all over the park.

The beer garden is not quite done but it's looking good. They also added another small bar in the Parkside Cafe with some pub tables to stand at outside on the patio.

As for rides and operations it wasn't great. Thunderbolt is still not open (although it has been painted). Phantom, Steel Curtain, were running one train, food lines were long, etc, but I expect that from parks this time of year.

Also, the Kangaroo is not ready. They are targeting Memorial Day weekend for that. They are using the Paratrooper's spot for the queue so that's confirmation that it will not be back.

I am really looking forward to the Bites & Pints festival this year and for what's to come. It feels like Kennywood has finally realized that what they have is special and worth caring for and it shows in their 2022 improvements.
