Kennywood - Racer

Racer – 1927
Kennywood, West Mifflin, Pennsylvania

This ride is unique in that, as the name implies, it is a bona fide racing coaster. Two trains leave the station at once and compete in an actual race to the finish.

Even more interesting, this ride sports a single, continuous track, not twin tracks. It uses a “Mobius” layout with impressive features like a reverse curve. Passengers start out on one side of the station and finish the ride on the other after completing half the course.
