80: Kennywood Amusement Park
Whether it’s the World Series, Stanley Cup or NBA Finals, Game 7 makes for a great story. Recently, one of the greatest stories in NBA history was told. LeBron James brought the city of Cleveland its first major sports title in 52 years.
In honor of this momentous event, I present my Top 10 NBA Stories.
Our guests today come to us straight from Kennywood Park! Welcome to Chris Salerno, Director of Sales & Marketing and Nick Paradise, Director of Public Relations & Social Media.
Backgrounds – Chris Solerno
Came into the amusement park business back in the 70’s, starting at Six Flags Great Adventure, then Dorney Park, Caesar’s in the Poconos, and helping to introduce Great Wolf Resorts before bringing his talents to Pittsburgh.
Chris feels like a steward of great historical entity regarding his position at Kennywood.
