Steelers Help Unveil Steel Curtain Roller Coaster at Kennywood

Published

on

With the newest roller coaster at Kennywood, which was unveiled to the public for the first time on Friday, being named the Steel Curtain, it was only fitting that the Pittsburgh Steelers were a big part of the opening.

Voice of the Steelers Bill Hillgrove kicked off ceremonies at the West Mifflin amusement park and current and former Steelers John Banaszak, Cameron Heyward, Chris Hoke, Mike Wagner and Craig Wolfley took part in the festivities.

Heyward spoke about what we he thought of his first experience on the ride.

The roller coaster, which will open to the general public on Saturday, is the anchor of an entire Steelers-themed area of the park, located where the Log Jammer ride used to be.

The Steel Curtain, named for the notorious Steelers defensive line of the 1970s, is the tallest coaster in Pennsylvania. It also features the most inversions in North America and the tallest inversion in the world.

Kennywood general manager Jerome Gibas called the collaboration between the park and the sports franchise a first when it was originally conceived in 2015.
