WEST MIFFLIN, PA
Back in early March, Kennywood announced the return of the Old Mill ride. Since then, things haven’t gone as planned for Kennywood or anyone for that matter. Millions of Americans are asked to stay at home as much as possible and large gatherings like concerts, sporting events and amusement parks have either been postponed or canceled. That includes Kennywood, which announced earlier this month the season will be delayed.
Since preseason operations have been shut down they said they will not be ready to start the season on May 2, as originally planned. “While it’s too soon to confidently provide an opening date, please know we remain committed to opening Kennywood this summer for you to enjoy as soon as safely possible,” park management said in a statement.
While we wait for Kennywood to reopen, the amusement park released the new logo for the "new" Old Mill. The logo shows the “retro western theme” that originally debuted for the ride in the 1970s and was maintained until it became “Garfield’s Nightmare” in 2004.
