Kennywood Creates New Chaperone Policy For Minors Starting In 2021
Kennywood is instituting a new Chaperone Policy starting in Spring of 2021 to ensure an adult accompanies minors during their visit.
Guests 17 years and younger must be accompanied by a ticketed adult 21 years of age upon entering the park after 4pm. During seasonal events like Phantom Fright Nights and Holiday Lights, adult chaperones will be required during the entire event.
The policy states as follows:
“Guests aged 17 years and under must be accompanied by an adult chaperone beginning at 4:00 p.m.
An adult chaperone is a parent, guardian, or other supervising adult at least 21 years of age. Adult chaperones must be able to provide valid ID, including a photograph and date of birth.
Each adult chaperone must be present at the time of entry and remain within the park for the duration of their party’s visit.
Minors visiting prior to 4 p.m. may enter without an adult chaperone. Kennywood expects that minors entering without a chaperone will be joined by one at 4 p.m. If Guests aged 17 and under enter prior to 4 p.m., then leave and request to re-enter the park, at 4 p.m. or later, they must be accompanied by an adult chaperone.
During seasonal events like Phantom Fright Nights and Holiday Lights, adult chaperones are required during the entire event. Guests who cannot provide identification proving they are at least 18 years of age, or without an adult chaperone age 21 or older, will be refused entry.
This policy is subject to change at Kennywood’s discretion.”
Kennywood states that their mission is to provide the finest in family fun and entertainment. Safety is always the top priority as they strive to create a welcoming environment for all Guests and Team Members.
This news comes just after the park announced the removal of 4 classic rides.
