Coke or pepsi at Nagashima?

Friday, September 13, 2002 7:55 AM

Hey. I was wondering what kind of drinks they sell at Nagashima Spa Land. Coke or pepsi? or something else?

Why does it matter? They sell many drinks, most of which are neither coke or pepsi.

I work in Chicago and ate at the Billy Goat earlier this week...funny thing is, they now serve fries and Coke, but not chips or Pepsi..

I haven't been to the Billy Goat in years. That actually sounds like a good idea. Too bad I already have plans to go to Star of Siam!

Oh yeah, amusement parks are fun!

I haven't been to the Goat since they closed the one on Wells in 1996. That was a cool place.

What I wanna know is why parks that serve Coke don't also serve Mello Yello.

It's the equivalent to Mountain Dew, and all parks that serve Pepsi serve Mountain Dew.

PKI has it in some of the machines now, but not in fountains. In fact, the Burger King near my house is the only place I've seen in the last few years to have Mello Yello from the fountain.

What *I* want to know is why don't more places that serve Pepsi and Mountain Dew, also serve DIET Mountain Dew? Holiday World does, any others?

Even worse is the places that sell Pepsi products, but then don't have REGULAR Mountain Dew. Where the hell is the logic in that? Believe me...those places do exist.

Actually I know the answer to my own question. Best selling pop is, in order:

1) Coke 2) Pepsi 3) Diet Coke 4) Mountain Dew 5) Dr Pepper 6) Sprite 7) Diet Pepsi

So if your favorite pop isn't on that list, you probably won't find it at the parks.

My wife is always looking for Caffeine Free Diet Pepsi. I think HW has that, too.

I think parks should serve Ale-8-One, personally. I doubt anyone here who doesn't live within 50 miles of Lexington, KY, knows what I'm talking about... but it's da bomb.

Greg, Kennywood sold Diet Dew this year, but not from fountains. It was available in 20oz bottles at some of the sipper carts.

I love that stuff... doesn't even taste like diet.

Not being in the top few popular drinks won't really keep it from being in parks, Kennywood this year had Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Sierra Mist, Mtn Dew, Code Red Mtn Dew, Iced Tea, & Lemonade on tap; and had Diet Dew, Hawaiian Punch, Aquafina, Pepsi Blue and a few others in bottles.

Now if they'd just make Diet Code Red in cases.

Den, I know what you mean about Mello Yellow. Maybe most people don't realize that it's very similar to Mt. Dew, so it doesn't sell very well?

What I want to know is, do any parks have Vanilla Coke yet? I'm addicted to that stuff!

ColumbusCoaster - the only place I know of to have Vanilla Coke on tap is White Castle (blecch!). I love it, too. I used to make it myself before they started doing it for me. :)

p.s. At Steak n Shake and Big Boy, they'll make up a homemade one for you. mm, better than Coke's version.

Den - funny you should mention Steak 'n Shake. I just had a homemade one from there a couple weeks ago on the way home from Cedar Point. I agree that the homemade ones are better (you can get a good one at Johnny Rockets, too), but the Coke version is mighty tasty, actually rivaling Cherry Coke as my favorite pop.

As for White Castle...well, I guess they finally have something good on their menu! :)

I'm not surprised to see that parks don't have it on tap yet, since it is still relatively new. How about in the vending machines?

Amen.

Diet Dew... that seems almost wrong.

Agreed, Jeff! Why mess with perfection :)

To answer the original question:

I dont recall seeing just one and not the other at any Japanese park. Even then, they were not the most prevelant drinks. It's not like America!

Why do you want to know, Pki Fanatic?

Oh, Japanese coke and pepsi, and Dew (hard to find there) are much, MUCH different tasting than what we have here in America. Not just fountain, but straight out of the bottle especially. Very different formula. It shocked me! McDonalds food is close to tasting the same, as is KFC. (Those Teryaki McBurgers are tasty!)

One of the best pops I've ever had is Banana Tropical in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. The way they drink pop there is to pour it from the glass bottle into a plastic baggie, then drink it from the baggie with a straw. Then the vendor deposits the bottle.

I bought one to keep the bottle and it cost twice as much.

Anyhoo - that was a good pop.

To answer Columbus Coaster's query - PKI has machines loaded with Vanilla Coke. But none on tap.
