Amuesement Park Themed Resturant with Amusenment park Fare.

Tuesday, October 20, 2009 7:24 PM

I was thinking since Six Flags is in the hair cut business now, could someone get into the Resturant business, baseing there food off of amusement park food and nostolgia? Here is my idea, have a resturant with the center peice being a Carrousel. Pictures and histories of rides from current and rides with fabled past. Have the food be staples of the parks but of better quality. Like Burgers, foot longs, funnel cakes, elephant ears, cotton candy, ice cream, cheese on a stick, corn dogs, fresh cut fries, fresh cut chips, turkey legs. Would this idea work? What other food would be good or themeing would be good?

I am not going to any restaurant that is serving Bugers.

Dave, we aren't talking about a restaurant. The title states "Amuesement Park Themed Resturant with Amusenment park Fare." Plus I don't know if it is Amuesement or Amusenment. Three spelling mistakes in the title, spell check?

Sounds like a cool idea but Six Flags Coaster Cuts appears to be a flop.

I walked by the 2nd location (King of Prussia Mall) last month on a Saturday when the mall was crowded and there was 1 customer in the entire place. The minimum price was $22 which seemed like a lot of money and there were so many toys, candy and other stuff for sale I would think a lot of parents wouldn't want to take their kids in their because they would start asking for the toys and candy.
Maybe a food idea would work better though.

I wouldn'y mind the park food, just as long as they don't charge park prices for it!

Depends on what park they are basing the food on! :)

Used to have a place in town called Alberto's Coney Island - this is exactly what it was. It was an old house, in a commercial district, that was converted into a restaurant. (It started off as a rib place, then moved on to pizza, and eventually Coney). There were 4 rooms, and each was decorated with different pictures and memorabilia from Coney island back in the day, and recently.

They served all kinds of Nathan's hot dogs, and standard Coney Island fare. It was a really cool place, and my dad and I used to meet for lunch there. Unfortunately, it wasn't in a prime spot, so it's now an insurance agency.

Ya just know that you'll be waiting an hour to get in, unless you forked out $50 more dollar,s for your Q-Food pass.

Coasters in Blackpool, England is pretty neat.

It's a restaurant full of old ride vehicles converted in to tables. Whip cars, coasters, bumper cars, etc.

I love this idea.

I once ate at a similar restaurant in Kansas City after an ACE event in 1989. It was Harry T's or something like that??? Wow, kind of forgot about that place. I wonder if it's still around.

^^We sure wanted to try the "Coasters" place, the decor looked fabulous from the outside. Unfortunately, even though the dates on the sign indicated the place SHOULD have been open, it was probably still at least a couple weeks' away (this was in August, so I doubt they opened at all this season).

Now Josh has me wanting Nathan's for lunch. Darn you Josh! ;)

The first time I read the OP, I thought it said "cream cheese on a stick." And I'm wondering what idiot park serves cream cheese on a stick? :) "It's good, but you have to eat it really fast."

Bear, it sounds like something they cooked up in Minnesota or Texas. They'll put ANYTHING on a stick in those places.

There is a place in Berea, Ohio (Suburb of Cleveland) located on 237 call The Midway. The lady that owns it also has been doing the carnival/fair circuit most of her life. They have everything from burgers, hot dogs and wings, to nachos, popcorn, elephant ears, deep fried oreos and funnel cakes available all year long. Prices are pretty reasonable.

I remember that place it was themed to our Fairyland Amusement Park and had memorabilia from there.The restaurant is closed and is gone. I believed it closed in the early 1990s. It was located off of US-71 in Grandview, MO, I don't know what happened to the stuff that was in it. I wish I knew because it was neat. Hopefully it's not lost forever.
