The Jack Rabbit at Kennywood is a real classic wooden coaster. The lift hill is in the middle of the ride, and there is a great drop that starts the ride off. Then theres a dark tunnel/turnaround and then you hit the lift hill. My favorite part on the coaster is the unique double-dip, where you get amazing airtime!

Good classic. Plenty of airtime. Nice location.

You cant beat the dog leash lap belt system which gets stretched on the legendary double dip, (a great element that is too often ignored by modern coaster designers). Mandatory first stop before you hit the lake and explore the rest of the park.

This is just a great old woodie. I love the classic trains, they dont have a moveable lapbar, and just this little leather lap belt that buckles, so you feel as if there are no restraints at all, and that adds up to some great airtime. It doesnt have a lot of speed and no lateral forces to speak of, but this makes it a coaster the whole family can get on.

This is a nice ole woodie! I swear if i was a foot shorter with my hands up I would fly out! You get some major airtime in this coaster!!! Kennywood has taken great pride in this ride also. Its pretty short ride, but it greatly deserves a 9.

I agree with Raptor. I thought this was supposed to be good? It stunk! I know its classical value and its old, but still.. Rough, and un-safe with the restraints. You go through the tunnel at 2mph.

Old doesnt necessasarily mean good. This ride is slow, outdated, and boring. It barely does anything, actually. The only reason its famous other than because its old is the double dip. The air time you get here is overrated, too. You may lift a foot out of your seat, but its only a split second before you slam back down. And thats the only airtime you get on the whole ride. Meanwhile other coasters today are offering up to 6 seconds of airtime at one spot. Sorry, but I need more than a double dip to call a coaster "good."

This is a very good old woodie. The double down provides great air, but because they put the breaks on the drop, its not as extreme as it could be. The last drop of the coaster really is a great one.

This is a good old rollercoaster. If you want a fun ride but not too thrilling ride this one. Good starter coaster.
