“So there was a lot of preparation, research, investigation, looking at what’s being recommend by the CDC and other health agencies, what our colleagues in the industry are doing and recommending,” Nick Paradise, Kennywood’s spokesperson, said. “So it was a lot. We’ve been operating since 1898 and didn’t want this to stop us.”
Our mission as we get ready to open: provide you with a clean, safe and fun experience.
