WEST MIFFLIN, PA
At Kennywood last year, the Jack Rabbit roller coaster missed its 100th birthday party. The football-themed roller coaster Steel Curtain missed its grand reopening. The bumper cars sat out a whole season, as did any game that involved a squirt gun.
After a delayed start, the West Mifflin theme park resumed operations in mid-July in 2020, but fewer people came by to ride the roller coasters and eat Potato Patch fries. Following health and safety guidelines put in place during the COVID-19 pandemic, the park had limited capacity, and the season was about 100 days shorter than usual.
