Kennywood: Behind the Screams

Kennywood, Brian Butko

Kennywood: Behind the Screams, Pocket Edition takes long-time fans and new visitors on a walking tour through Kennywood by exploring the history at each ride and attraction. Founded in 1898, the park has layers of history that tell of changing architecture, entertainment, and regional history, all brought to life by more than 300 vintage photos — many never-before-seen and in color.  This “pocket-sized” edition is the first of three books exploring Kennywood, Luna, and other regional parks; look for a coffee-table edition in 2018.

This little book is packed with revelations, surprises, and tons of cool stuff I never knew before. Add it to your picnic basket from now on!
