Overview

Kennywood is America's Finest Traditional Amusement Park! Located just outside Pittsburgh, PA, Kennywood offers a unique mix of classic rides and modern thrills, including six roller coasters, a 14-ride Kiddieland, and several attractions that cannot be found anywhere else. Kennywood's three wooden coasters have all been designated Landmark rides by the American Coaster Enthusiasts (ACE). Founded as a trolley park in 1898 and named a National Historic Landmark in 1987, Kennywood guarantees unforgettable fun for all ages. The experience goes well beyond the rides, as guests enjoy homemade fudge, tasty funnel cakes, and the world-famous Potato Patch fries! And Kennywood is not just a summer attraction, either! Visit on fall weekends for Happy Hauntings, a kid-friendly daytime event, or Phantom Fright Nights, where scare-actors roam the grounds and jolts await on every thrill ride! Visit weekends from Thanksgiving to New Year's for Holiday Lights, Pittsburgh's best winter tradition!

Kennywood Park in Pgh is just a great place for a family outing. Lots of rides and a huge picnic area so you can bring your own food. It's worth the money to spend the day here.

Even though they are owned by the same company, they are two different parks and do not share things like this. Enjoy the differences

You may want to call Kennywood to get a reliable answer. I don't have any experience with cups and refills. We just take our food and beverage for a picnic.
