Rollercoaster dedicated to Pittsburgh Steelers opens at Kennywood
POSTED 15 Jul 2019 . BY Tom Anstey

A great deal of time and effort has been put into the design, engineering and construction of this terrific ride that we are confident will be worth the wait
– Tim Timco
A new record-breaking ride dedicated to American Football team the Pittsburgh Steelers has come to Kennywood in Pennsylvania, US.

Named after the legendary Steelers defensive line from the 1970s, the Steel Curtain is the signature attraction for Steelers Country – a new area of the park which features football-themed games, food and merchandise.

Reaching speeds of up to 75mph (121kmph) with nine inversions, Steel Curtain breaks multiple records, including the most inversions of any ride in North America and the highest inversion of any rollercoaster in the world at 197ft (60m). It's also the tallest rollercoaster in the state.

With a black and gold track designed to look like a football, the S&S-designed, 1220m (4,000ft) long attraction anchors Steelers Country. A group of Pittsburgh Steelers players past and present, including star defensive end Cam Heyward and Mike Wagner and John Banaszak were in attendance for the ride's opening.

"A great deal of time and effort has been put into the design, engineering and construction of this terrific ride that we are confident will be worth the wait," said S&S Worldwide President Tim Timco. "It's a tremendous addition to this celebrated amusement park."
