Kennywood Park announces new coaster

WEST MIFFLIN, Pa. (AP) - August 14, 2009 Kennywood spokesman Jeff Filicko says the coaster, which will be ready next year, uses new coaster technology to achieve the rocket-like start.

The as-yet-unnamed coaster will replace the Turnpike, a slow ride that uses individual cars on a track.

The new coaster will also take riders upside down three times after a 95-foot vertical climb and drop.
