WEST MIFFLIN, Pa. — The Golden Ticket Awards, hosted by Kennywood Park on September 6 and 7, 2024, are just around the corner, and Amusement Today is eager to welcome the global industry once again with a lively networking event.

Registration is now open at GoldenTicketAwards.com for the 2024 event which is free to industry professionals to attend! 2024 sees a return to a traditional amusement park, as Kennywood Park is one of the most treasured amusement facilities in the U.S. Under the guidance of Palace Entertainment, Kennywood and Sandcastle Waterparkhave seen a multi-year makeover at each facility with paint, theming, landscaping and new attractions.

Also on the registration page, attendees can book discounted rooms at The Westin Pittsburgh Hotel, in downtown off Penn Avenue.

The event kicks off Friday evening  at Sandcastle Water Park for an evening of socializing and industry networking. Saturday morning begins with three tour offerings at the park, then park time for attendees to enjoy. Later, the Golden Ticket reception gets the evening underway, followed by dinner and the Golden Ticket Awards ceremony. Attendees will want to plan to stay late, as the fun continues under the park night lights with rides, food and drinks and additional entertainment for your enjoyment.

The Golden Ticket Awards have honored the “Best of the Best” in the amusement industry  for more than a quarter century, and the two-day outing has become the Networking Event of the Year. All professionals in the amusement industry are welcome. Amusement Today is proud to maintain the Golden Ticket Awards as a free industry event. All industry professionals will find three arranged tours and casual opportunities to connect with what’s happening in the industry, making for a vital and beneficial experience for all who attend.

Once again, a golf outing is planned for Friday morning, September 6 to benefit the National Roller Coaster Museum and Archives. “Held at the Westwood Golf Club, this event is your chance to support the NRCMA while enjoying a day of golf and camaraderie,” said  tournament organizer Melissa Bamford of Baynum Amusement Solution. The golf outing will have an 8 a.m. shotgun start and is priced at $150 per golfer, with proceeds benefiting the NRCMA.
