Nice wooden coaster. The airtime is the best part. This ride is very fun, and it is a living tradition of awesome engineering. This is a great family coaster. This is a must do at historic Kennywood.

I loved this ride when i was a little kid now i only ride it once. The double dip drop is still pretty amazing though.

Haha what do I say about this crazy little coaster? It only has a total track length of about 2100 but in that small about of space this coaster manages to be one of the most thrilling and fast paced coasters I have even ridden, make sure not to miss this little coaster, the line can get very long, but its worth it.

While it may not be as big or fast as the Thunderbolt, the Jack Rabbit is great for younger kids and enthusiasts alike. The overall feel of the ride is much gentler than that of the Thunderbolt, and even to some extent the Racer, but dont let that deceive you - this coaster can still pack a punch and provide some great air. The back seat is especially recommended, because when you hit that double dip, prepare to be flung into the air with more force than you are used to feeling on any other coaster this size, or many other coasters at all for that matter. Dont write this one off as a kiddie coaster - youll be missing out on a lot.

A simple layout with a quick turn, tunnel, some hills and the famous double dip. Its good for its age overall, but nothing spectacular. It is a good ride at night, otherwise I may have downgraded it a notch.

A very good roller coaster if you ask me. This ride is, and always will be a favorite in my opinion. The first thing it does is go around a turn, and pretty much rides by the people in line and then drops down a hill and into the tunnel. The double dip is very fun and you do feel like you are going to fall out. Sometimes you feel like you have to stick yourself to the seat or hold yourself down to stay in. The ride is short, but it is a very fun roller coaster and you wont regret going on it at all!

The Jack Rabbit, is a great coaster!! The best wooden coaster, at Kennywood, in my opinion. The airtime, on the double dip, is just superb!!

Everyone knows that size isnt everything, and this proves it. Its only 40 feet tall, but that double dip, which plunges 70 feet, gives some of the best airtime anywhere. And its 85 years old! There are other bits of airtime on this little ride, and the trains and station look very good. Like Thunderbolt, it plunged right out of the station, which you dont see too often. But, like a few other Kennywood coasters, its rather short for such a good woodie. It barely missed my list.
By no means kiddie, its a fun ride, but not the best.

How do I review this little crazy coaster? First you need to ride in the back or somewhere near it. The airtime you get on this is crazy. At one point I felt like I was standing straight up. I had know idea it was going to be like that.
