KennyKon XXXI


(Note NEW date)
Saturday, August 15, 2020


THIS EVENT IS ONLY FOR ACE MEMBERS AND THEIR GUESTS!

Celebrating the Oldest and Newest


Halfway through the 2019 season, the park debuted The Steel Curtain. The mammoth new 220-foot tall, nine-inversion thrill ride received rave reviews from enthusiasts and was awarded Best New Roller Coaster by Amusement Today's Golden Ticket Awards. This year during KennyKon, we'll not only enjoy the second season of the park's newest coaster, but we'll celebrate the centennial anniversary of its oldest! The park's legendary Jack Rabbit, an ACE Roller Coaster Landmark, turns 100 this year. The event will include the official celebration of this incredible milestone that only a handful of coasters have previously reached! Both of these rides – the newest – and the oldest, will be included in morning ERT!

COVID 19 CONSIDERATIONS

The greatest concern of American Coaster Enthusiasts is the health, safety and enjoyment of its members. To ensure continued safety, ACE is closely monitoring the ever-evolving COVID-19 situation. As a result, we ask that you respect the wishes of ACE and the park.


Please follow and respect all safety procedures instituted by Kennywood, our host for the event. This includes wearing face coverings as requested by the park. You can view safety procedures here

 

When arriving for morning event check-in at the park, as a courtesy the volunteers working, please wear a face covering when approaching the check-in area. The volunteers will be wearing a face covering as well. We likewise suggest and encourage wearing face covering when in close proximity to one another when socializing prior to entering the park.

 

We realize that many of you attending may be seeing some of your ACE friends for the first time in quite a while. We know that you'll be happy to see one another, but given health concerns, we kindly ask that you refrain from shaking hands, hugging and any other physical contact outside those in your group/family.  Everyone has different comfort levels in terms of being in close proximity to others. Please be respectful of other members and allow a six-foot distance between one another, unless it's made clear by all involved that closer proximity is welcomed.
