I gave this racer an extra point because I still can’t figure out how the continuous track works. A rather tame ride, but the last drop before the station is a doozy!

Classic racing coaster that is actually one long track. The most fun on this ride comes from slapping hands with riders in the opposite train. The station is beautiful and the racing aspect neat, but the coaster isnt very thrilling at all.

Its a fun ride. I waited about 30 minutes for this ride and it was well worth it.

While everything at Kennywood is good or above average. I found Racer to be the biggest surprise and fun factor ladden ride at Kennywood.
I cant really place my finger on what made the ride one of my favorites other than it was fun from start to finish.
One of the four double coasters that actually has one track in the world.

I rode this coaster 43 times in one day as a youth and have never tired of it. Its not fast but its great fun and artistically the ride is one of the most aesthetically appealing coasters youll ever ride. Before you get on, its great to hear the racers shiver the timbers of the loading station as they turnaround above you. A fair start usually results in two handslapping sessions. An old friend that is always well tended to by its caretakers.

Pretty fun, but its slow, tame, and has no air time. Its almost force free, actually. The racing elements arent too great, either, at least when compared to newer racing coasters.

Very fun ! The trains get a few feet apart so you can talk to the other people in between drops !

The suprise coaster of my trip. I had heard bad things, but boy was this fun! The mobius effect still stumps me. Great near misses with other sections of the track, good air time near the last drop, but the first drop was far too slow and not high enough.

This is just a fun coaster. The last drop is a good one. Best part of the ride is that you can slap hands with the riders in the other train.

This one shows it age. I really dont like it. It is a pretty tame coaster.
