Kennywood Installs Final Piece Of Track To The Steel Curtain Roller Coaster

PITTSBURGH (KDKA)--Looks like Kennywood has installed the final piece of track on the Steel Curtain.

"Crews spent much of today working on completion, which largely consists of torqueing (tightening) bolts on the ride and prepping the site and structure to begin test runs," said Nick Paradise, the Director of Public Relations & Social Media.

Steel Curtain is the centerpiece of what will be Steelers Country, a themed area coming to the park this summer in partnership with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
