By now, you’ve probably heard that Kennywood has just announced plans to add a new roller coaster to the park next year: The Steel Curtain, a large-scale ride that will include a world-record tallest inversion of 197 feet, nine inversions, and will reach top speeds of 75 m.p.h.
And it’s going to be part of a new section of the park called “Steelers Country,” in partnership with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
So yeah, Pittsburghers are pumped. Here’s what they have to say about it:

This will immediately surpass other prominent Kennywood hot spots, including “IC Light Land” and “Gooski’s Grounds”

I'm so hyped about the #Kennywood new ride announcement that I've somehow fallen down the rabbit hole of roller coaster enthusiast twitter. Am I now following @Coaster101? You bet ya! #SteelCurtain #Pittsburgh

The Steelers ride at Kennywood is the most Yinzery think I could possibly think of. It’s spectacular. This has to be the first sports franchise with a roller coaster, right? If they somehow include fireworks and pierogies it would be a yinzplosian that I never thought possible.

Breaking News: Noah's Ark will be moved from Kennywood to the top of the Champion's Club in the South End Zone at Heinz Field.

And, the hands-down best reaction:
The new Kennywood rollercoaster is all about the Pittsburgh Steelers …colors…name and all. If the Cleveland Browns were to have a rollercoaster dedicated to them it wouldn't even start… and if it did.. it would stall out and roll backwards going up the first hill.
