Getting Around Pittsburgh’s Kennywood Amusement Park
Historic Kennywood Amusement Park in Pittsburgh Pennsylvani has been a favorite place for residents and visitors to enjoy during the spring and summer months for decades.
Kennywood has long been acknowledged as one of America’s best traditional amusement parks.
Individuals who depend upon the special assistance which comes from a mobility device like a wheelchair, power scooter or electric convenience vehicle (ECV) to enjoy the good times at Kennywood are fortunate to have a number of options available to them in the metropolitan Pittsburgh marketplace.
A Disability Can Be Temporary
If you have an accident which results in a temporary disability, like a broken leg, there’s no need to stay home or limit your mobility options.
Disability, whether temporary or permanent, touches many lives. Thank goodness there’s no need to go it alone.
What Are My Options ?
If you plan to employ a mobility assistance device when you visit Kennywood, there are several options you can consider.
The first option is to bring your own.
The second option is to rent from Kennywood.
The third option is to rent a wheelchair or ECV from one of the outside vendors that services Kennywood on a daily basis. Vendors typically provide delivery and pick up at your destination for no additional charge. You can make arrangements with the vendor directly to deliver where you are staying and your desired delivery/pick up dates and times. Or you may have it delivered directly to the park if you desire.
Should a difficulty arise with your wheelchair or scooter, vendors have support staff and can be contacted to assist you. The major advantage of using an outside vendor versus renting from Kennywood is you can use your mobility aid both inside and outside the park, and it is available whenever you need it.
It is also important to remember that during busy times, Kennywood may run short of rentable options. Renting from an outside vendor ensures you’ll get the device you need.
