Black Widow Adds a Lot of Screams to the Park

Back and forth, as a pendulum.

Spin round and round simultaneously.  Not to mention the height.     Oh my.

I shot this angle at dusk.

No, I did not ride it but was fascinated by the long lines of people waiting to get onto it and be scared out of their minds.  The screams rated high in decibels.

You can read a great article about it and there is a video link to view as well.  Plan a vacation in Pittsburgh and take the Black Widow at Kennywood.

 


Phantom’s Revenge Riders Fly Towards the Full Moon

August first,  just after sunset.  West Mifflin, PA.  Kennywood Amusement Park.  Just driving by.  Got out of the van and waited for the cars filled with riders to come into the frame.
