Kennywood set to close Pitt Fall drop tower ride?

Kennywood entrance

Kennywood has put the Pitt Fall drop tower ride up for sale, although the park claims that no decision has made over its future as yet.

The Beaver County Times reports that Pitt Fall has been listed for sale by International Rides Management, which brokers ride sales between amusement parks. Images of the ride, listed as an Intamin Giant Drop Tower, have been posted to the company's Facebook page.

Jeff Filicko, a spokesman for Kennywood, claimed that the park has made no firm decision on the future of Pitt Fall and that the listing is purely "exploratory". It is not known whether a replacement ride would be sought should a buyer emerge for the drop tower.

Pitt Fall was the tallest drop tower in the world when it first opened in 1997, standing at some 251-feet-tall. It sees riders carried to the top of the tower, before free-falling at 65mph back down to the bottom.

There are no comments so far.
