Steel Curtain, the new Steelers-inspired roller coaster at Kennywood, features a whopping nine inversions and hits 75 mph.
There will be ups and downs aplenty, as well as lateral G-forces, airtime and inversions – lots and lots of inversions – when Steel Curtain, the record-breaking, Steelers-inspired roller coaster opens at Kennywood, the amusement park just outside of Pittsburgh, in 2019. The highly anticipated ride will be part of a new football-focused land called, aptly enough, Steelers Country.
“We really wanted to make a splash with our next roller coaster,” says Nick Paradise, Kennywood‘s director of public relations, explaining the decision to forge a Steelers connection. “To our knowledge, this will be the first permanent [park land and ride] dedicated to a sports franchise.”
