Top off your Thanksgiving weekend with the tenth 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 4 to 7 p.m. Attendees with a
valid ticket (or eligible season pass) will enjoy early admission AND
some special activities including 30 minutes of ERT on Jack Rabbit;
the first-ever tour inside of The Exterminator, which turned 20
years old in 2019 (a tour was scheduled for ACE Holiday Magic that year,
but park didn't open on the day of the event, owing to an unfavorable
weather forecast); and expedited boarding for a train ride. There will,
of course, also be a number of ITOTs (Informal Take Over Times) on
various rides. If temperatures for the evening are expected to be
below 40 degrees, ACE Western Pennsylvania will provide a limited number
of complimentary hand-warmers to event attendees. Note that special
activities are contingent of favorable weather conditions. In the event
of snow, sleet or rain, other activities may be substituted.
