No Magic Tonight - Pop-Up Event at Scene 75
UPDATE AS OF DECEMBER 1 at
1 PM: Due to the unfavorable weather and weather forecast,
Kennywood's management has made the decision that the park won't be open
this evening. We therefore regret that ACE Holiday Magic 2019 is
Since Kennywood is closed tonight and the ACE
Holiday Magic 2019 event is cancelled as a result, we've decided to have
an alternate pop-up event at Scene 75 Entertainment Center in nearby
Edgewood. The gathering will begin at 4:30 p.m. All activities at
Scene 75 are indoors and the complex features go-karts, miniature golf,
Spin Zone bumper cars, an XD Dark Ride, mini bowling, a large arcade,
full-service food and lots more. As an added bonus, the first 20 ACE
members to find Aaron Lesko (he'll be near the front) will get a $10
game card, compliments of Scene 75 (the $10 is only valid for arcade
game play, but the card can be reloaded and used for attractions). Scene
75 is located in Edgewood Towne Center, just off the Edgewood exit of
I-376 (Parkway East) and those using this exit to get to and from
Kennywood routinely pass it. For more information on Scene 75, click here.
Top off your
Thanksgiving weekend with the ninth annual installment of Kennywood Park's
Holiday Lights! The park is decorated with hundreds of thousands of holiday
lights. Discount tickets will be available for purchase on the day of the event,
from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Attendees who are at the gate with a valid ticket (or eligble
season pass) by 4:10 p.m. will enjoy early admission AND be treated to
tour inside of The
Exterminator, which turned 20 years old this summer. Attendees will also
have the chance to line up for "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" in 4-D before the general public
enters the park. There will of course be a number of ITOTs (Informal Take Over
Times) on various rides. If temperatures for the evening are expected to
40 degrees, ACE Western Pennsylvania will provide a limited number of
complimentary hand-warmers for event attendees. Note that early entry activities
are contingent of favorable weather conditions. In the event of snow, sleet or
rain, another activity may be substituted.
