WEST MIFFLIN, PA
Some changes are welcomed at Kennywood. Take, for instance, the highly anticipated Steel Curtain roller coaster set to open this summer. Other changes aren’t. Social media began buzzing with chatter that the cheese sauce on Kennywood’s Potato Patch fries is different this year.
“Heard the fries and cheese at the Potato Patch were changed this year for the worse. (Pittsburghers) don’t do change well. Know your audience. Fix the fries/cheese, please,” one Twitter user told the park in a tweet.
The complaints were heard. Kennywood said on its Facebook page that a new cheese sauce was being “tested” at the Potato Patch at the start of the season, but it planned to go back to the traditional cheese. “We greatly appreciate your feedback and passion, and want to let you know it’s been heard. We will be going back to serving Patch fries with the traditional cheese that’s made the Potato Patch one of Kennywood’s most popular attractions,” the post read.
