Remember when Dick Kinzel once said on an earnings call that "people gotta eat?" For the most part, people in that era expected mediocre to crappy food at the parks. Not having good food, in retrospect, was a missed opportunity. If I can get stuff that's better than typical fast food, not only do I not mind paying more, but kind of expect it. The food festivals have really changed my thinking on this. Beyond Disney and SeaWorld, Cedar Fair has dabbled in this, and I think some of the Six Flags have too. But some parks have consistently had good food too, like Holiday World's Thanksgiving stuff.

no one talks (favorably) about the food at Six Flags.
