Kennywood’s Steel Curtain down for weekend

Members of the Pittsburgh Steelers organization ride the Steel Curtain during a media event for the new coaster at Kennywood Park on Friday, July 12, 2019.

Kennywood’s new Steel Curtain roller coaster will be closed for the remainder of the weekend, according to the amusement parks’ Facebook page.

It’s at least the third time the coaster, which opened July 13, has shut down for maintenance.

The coaster closed partway through its opening day, and its reopening the next day was delayed as well. It closed for a few hours on July 15, too.

Park spokesman Nick Paradise said at the time it often takes a bit of time to work out kinks in new rides.

“There’s always some working out to do when you’re starting up operations on something like this,” he said. “People should not be concerned when they hear about the ride not being open. Safety is always our top priority.“

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
