Just to let you know. I've had a few calls at work from people telling me about CP being on the news tonight (thurdsay). I didn't get to see the full promo, but according to the commercials they show CP and say, "And You thought the roller coasters were suppose to make you queezy" Then it showed some food and talked about rats. It said news at 11. I'm pretty sure it's news channel 5 but I'm not sure... So we'll see what's up tonight. If anyone else knows anything let add some insight. *** Edited 5/21/2004 1:46:44 AM UTC by RollerCoasterGod***

Quick summary: It actually wasn't too bad. They had a mold problem on the floor at Red Garder Salloon. A few uncovered dishes in some walkin coolers. Midway Market had some coolers broken. Macaronis had 4 pretty big violations in the food world. Including sinks that didn't work. The Saloon had Pork being stored not at temp. And there were a few other things. They did in fairness state some of the good places to eat at CP. They said Johnny Rockets was the best. And the Pretzel place. They had no violations. In all it said CP isn't to bad of a place to eat but that they did have some serious violations. They also went into the back of some places and CP has said they since have been fixed and employees are and have undergo strict food safety programs.
this is what Stong Bad thinks of Local news.
Whenever I struggle to watch that station, I always feel like I'm watching Hard Copy or a television version of the Weekly World News.
As predicted, there was nothing to the story. The reporter talked about a few minor violations that have already been corrected. Instead of explaining that, it was apparently a lot more interesting to flash a big red "VIOLATION" across the screen for each one (as if the reporter himself was the one who did all the dirty work and caught them with his "investigation"). As with the Disney piece, he failed to mention the few number of violations as a percentage of overall food operation. Is it reasonable for a food operation that size to never have a violation?
The best part was the quotes.
One, halfway through the piece: "Hey, Cedar Point, health inspector's telling you to clean upppppp!" The emphasis on the "up" was his.
The other was at the end - regarding the number of violation-free locations: "Hey, Cedar Point, pretty impressive. Way to go."
So, which is it?
I think everyone around here will know that this isn't a case of me being upset about a negative story about Cedar Point. I also know that those who have watched Action News know exactly what I'm talking about regarding their overall news operation!
I also enjoyed their "undercover" camera. Funny stuff!
I'm much happier that way.
Of course, I get my coaster news from ARN&R, so I've still got some work to do.
Knowing that I am about 20 pounds lighter than I was since I went to CP last year, I am hoping that I fit into the restrtaints. I am going to CP on June 8-10.
According to CPismyhome, we should be OK. I hope CPis my home is correct.
Leave it to the 'shock' news mentality...... I own/manage a food service operation and we have NEVER had a perfect inspection, and I don't believe we ever will. It's the inspectors job to find something wrong. For example, we have two regular freezers holding some of our frozen foods - that's a violation because they aren't 'commercial' type. Another, we once received a violation because the ceiling over our snack bar wasn't smooth textured (it was that spray-on little dot type). It had been that way for 23 years and then we received a violation because it wasn't smooth so it couldn't be 'wiped down'. Go figure....
Anyway, according to what's posted here, I still plan on eating at CP (after I have fit into MF of course) :)
