Kennywood Park is one of the oldest amusement parks in America, founded in 1898. Kennywood Park was a big part of our childhood in the Pittsburgh area. At the end of each school year, most school districts had a Kennywood Park Day.  The rides included the roller coasters; Jackrabbit, Racer, and Thunderbolt along with the infamous Old Mill where you could steal a kiss or two.  Kennywood was designated a National Historic Landmark since 1987
