Kennywood 2021 Season Pass

A Season Pass to Kennywood gives you family fun all summer long! Enjoy wild roller coasters from the century-old Jack Rabbit to the state-of-the-art Steel Curtain, plus attractions for all ages and those world-famous Potato Patch fries. A Basic Season Pass is just a few dollars more than a single-day ticket, so go for the value!Included with every 2021 Season Pass purchased, our Dayback Guarantee allows you comfort in planning for summertime family fun. Should we experience an unexpected closure related to COVID 19, your Kennywood Season Pass will be extended into the 2022 Season for an equal number of operating days at no additional cost starting on Opening Day of 2022. For example, if we lose two weeks in August, we will extend your pass to include the first two weeks of the 2022 season. In 2022 you will be offered a prorated discount on your purchase of renewal passes. Available for a limited time, this offer will be based on the number of Operating Days extended into 2021.

Della & Lila Book Series

As parents seek gift ideas that will educate and engage their children this holiday season, there is no better gift than supporting a children’s book that gives back. The creative Della and Lila Book Series, co-written by Brianne Mitchell and her two daughters Della and Lila, brings light to community giving and kindness.  The three books: Della and Lila Meet the Monongahela Mermaid, Della and Lila Meet the Monongahela Monster and Della and Lila and the Treasure Hunt tell adventurous tales from the eyes of a child while emphasizing compassion, friendship, kindness and community. This family-owned series from Pittsburgh donates proceeds to the nonprofit, River Fund in effort to help children and families in need. A perfect stocking stuffer, we’re encouraging families to step away from the tablets and remember the importance of kindness this season.
