The keystone attraction to Kennywood’s “Steelers Country” – the Steel Curtain Rollercoaster – is set to open to the public this weekend.
In attendance this morning – PA Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman. Fetterman will speak during dedication ceremonies of the Steel Curtain this morning at Kennywood Park. The Second Family has been invited to take a ride on the coaster – the first amusement attraction themed after a professional football team.
Media and contest winners had the first chance to ride the record-setting coaster this morning.
Some of those records: it holds the world record for highest inversion at 197 feet, the North American record for most inversions at 9, and the PA state record for tallest roller coaster at 220 feet tall.
The ride opens to the public Saturday.
