Kennywood Park has a new General Manager.

Mark Pauls has more than 30 years of experience in the amusement industry having worked previously for companies such as Sea World and Busch Gardens.

The Pittsburgh institution made the announcement Thursday, though Pauls began working in his new role at the end of June.

“It’s easy to see how important maintaining tradition is for Kennywood, as an old park with so many historic rides,” Mark says. “I look forward to learning more from our Team Members and Guests about Kennywood and how we build its history to create an exciting future.”

Kennywood didn't open to the public until July 13 this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition to Pauls, Kennywood also hired a new Food & Beverage Director this summer named Lenny Freund, who also started in June of this year.
