It's been a long, cold, lonely winter, and even though Saturday won't be looking like Bermuda around here, the plan is for Kennywood to open to riders.

It's a one-day deal, and then the park opens again May 10-11 and for the season on May 15.

The newest ride is still the Black Widow, which replaced the Pittfall in 2012, but there is a new spot for food. The '50s-style burger franchise Johnny Rockets is taking up residence in the carousel building and will open in early June. Part of the attraction is servers who do a song and dance about every 30 minutes.

Also on the food front, if you've lost an hour in the slow-moving lines at the Potato Patch, Kennywood has a fix. The park has added ordering stations to keep things moving faster.

Good news for young riders and their parents is that the age-old Auto Race, 1930 to be exact, which was closed for a portion of last year, will be back with new wood and electrical components.

Also, in celebration of the 90th anniversary of the Kennywood arrow, coupons are circulating for buy-one-get-one-free admission tickets on specific dates.
