Coaster and Kennywood enthusiasts can now rejoice, the West Mifflin amusement park opened to season-ticket holders Friday afternoon for the first time in 2020. The recent COVID-19 pandemic has delayed the park’s opening day several times. The opening date for the general public will be Monday, July 13, and to enter the park, guests must reserve a ticket online for a scheduled date, wear a mask and receive a temperature screening upon entering the park gates.

The park has enhanced cleaning measures, added sanitizing stations, and educated guests and team members.

Kennywood also has a list of requirements on their website that guests will have to follow inside the park gates.

  • All those wishing to enter Kennywood (Guests, Team Members, Suppliers, and Contracted Partners) will have their temperatures scanned before entering the park.
  • Any person with a temperature of 100.4°F or higher, or displaying other symptoms of COVID-19, will be denied entry.
  • Facial coverings are required for all entrants, except children under three and those with a valid medical condition.
  • Social distance of six feet between your party and others is required throughout the park.
