The Kangaroo Ride at Kennywood Park, West Mifflin Pennsylvania

Next to the statue of George Washington is one of the coolest flat rides ever, the Kangaroo.  You go around and around on the Kangaroo but once a lap it gives you a kick of airtime.  I wish there were more of these but I think Kennywood's is the only one remaining.

One of the many classic gem of a rides that reside at Kennywood is the Jack Rabbit rollercoaster.

The Jack Rabbit isn't the tallest coaster with a lift that goes only forty feet over the station but it's built across a ravine that adds another thirty feet to that drop.

Actually you don't even hit the lift until half the ride is over because first you drop into the ravine before turning around, dropping into the ravine again before eventually heading up the Jack Rabbit's lift.

After that forty foot climb the Jack Rabbit sends you around another one hundred and eighty degree turn before it's legendary extreme airtime filled element, the double dip.
