Parks Without Table Service Dining

Raven-Phile - we did the same thing for Fantasmic a couple years ago- I think we had ordered a package that was dinner at the Brown Derby then VIP access to the show - and it was great. It was also freezing cold, like 35 degrees, so we got hot chocolate and relied on the fire effects for blasts of warmth. We sure felt special, though!

Kennywood no longer has any table service restaurants but they did have one years ago durintg the 1960s and early 1970s. It occupied half of the building where the Parkside Cafe is now. The other half was a cafeteria facility similar to the existing Parksde Cafe.

All this talk about Fantasimic, and it still sucks. :)

I kind of wish they had left Tusker the way it was,

Me too. The roasted salmon entree they had was easily one of the best values on property, anywhere---it was really good, it was really good for you (crisp-tender green beans!) and it was offered at a surprisingly fair price.

Me three...steamed fresh mixed veggies, garlic smashed potatoes, grilled chicken, grilled fish. The prices were stupid-cheap, as though you weren't even in a park. Relaxing area just seconds away from the area we've deemed "little Calcutta", the always super-crowded area between the Safari and the bridge.

The Denny's at Kings Dominion..back in the mid 70s there was serious talk about a Sambos being built inside that park but that never happened. Just as well though...Sambos didn't last very long as the chain more/less went defunct in the early 80s...I believe a good many of their Virginia locations did end up becoming Denny's though.

I also seem to remember that Virginia-based Aunt Sarah's Pancake House at one point in the early 80s was interested in building a location inside KD ( I have always heard that their top grossing restaurant is located off I-95 justmiles from KD )...but either KD wasn't interested in having them there or the chain simply changed their minds.

Re: Six Flags tipping

Or perhaps they were getting stiffed on tips because the customers thought the food was way overpriced to begin with.
