The Turtle is a track guided ride. It is fast, fun, rerideable, it has a large capacity, and a long duration.

This little ride caused quite a punch. I actually experienced a little air and some laterals going around the track. It also was a pretty long ride as well and it truely is another one-of-a-kind ride.

Rare and unique flat, but the one at Conneaut was far better. I like the look of the ride and the cycle was long, but it seemed a bit slow and there was no air time during the ride.

This is a family friendly ride that is good for taking a load off after a long day at the park. It is also good for people who are at the park in larger groups, since the cars are roomy and comfortable enough to accomodate more riders than average. However, putting aside all of the nostalgia and longevity of this ride, it is a pretty average ride. Up and down, round and round. However, one important feature that it has going for it is location. It is a perfect spot to scout out the lines for both Phantoms Revenge and Thunderbolt, since it sits in between both coasters.

I love this ride. It is so cute and appealing. Its just that sea green color. Its appealing to me... I remember the first time I went on it it was raining. Now that was cool. It isnt like "WOW how thrilling!" but it is still a lot of fun and worth a spin or two. Plus its one of the worlds few "Tumble Bugs/Turtles".

certainly worth riding due to its historical significance and classic nature, but is not a thrill ride. A family ride that could seat 2 aduls and 4 kids in each turtle making it a great family ride. I hark on it not being a thrill ride but it was in the early 20th century when these were prevalent at every park. I didnt notice any airtime but I did like the juxtaposition of the location between PR and Thuderbolt.

WHOA! WATCH OUT! ITS THE TURTLE! This thing seriously whips you around a little. I thought it would be comparable to the docile caterpillar at other parks...I was wrong! Because I pulled out my camera on this ride, thinking I could capture the excitement around us as we went slowly around. Um, no. I actually almost lost my camera on this one. But heres another older ride that you dont see everyday and you should go on it, even though its not the greatest. The unexpected craziness is reason enough.

Ah the Turtle...one of the few rides that I consider to be "nifty." I dont use that word too often, but this ride seems to be perfect for it. Nestled between the Thunderbolt and the Phantom, this little ride humbly dishes out thrills to the young and old alike, providing both a relaxing and interesting ride experience. If you have a chance, check this ride out...it is a rare piece that few parks can boast in their collections anymore, just another part of Kennywoods almost perfectly preserved history
