Well I can now say I've ridden all the coasters at Hershey.

Let it go, man. Lol

Still don't know what THAT joke means. I could be using it wrong. Hehehe...

I eat so little at parks that I miss a ton of stuff, sometimes to my benefit, sometimes to my detriment. I DO recall the ginormous hot dogs at the hot dog cart and the pints of frozen icees though.

So you're the type who remembers a large wiener?

Interesting. ;)

That Cedar Point Midway Buffet may be the worst I've ever eaten at, and I love me my buffets. How exactly do you ruin chicken nuggets?

A steam table can ruin just about any food item.

Is Midway Market still serving that same pot of Cream of ****ing Broccoli soup that they have had since the Clinton administration? :)

It was not the sad buffet, apparently.

It was only sad because you weren't there, bunky.

It should have been happy I wasn't there, Mike. I probably would have effed that buffet up when I was at CP. I was so hungry that day!!! Perhaps I will eat there next year because the gang is all finally planning a CP trip together. Then we'll see if it is that bad for ourselves. Not that I like to punish myself, but it would still probably be better than what little food I ate there a few years ago.

I take no issue with Midway Market. In fact, their ham is actually pretty good, believe it or not - and I hate ham.

Other than that, it's standard food that you find everywhere else in the park, but it's way cheap, comparatively. Fried chicken/chicken fingers, pizza, burgers, tacos/nachos, a pasta bar, and a huge selection of desserts including all you can eat cheesecake (who cares if it's not home made, it's still pretty tasty). On top of that, you get unlimited drink refills - that almost makes it worth it right there.

I'm no buffet connoisseur, but for what I have eaten, it's the same exact food.

And not to be confused with the Mid-Timbers Market. I doubt you even understand what that means... ;)

Funny. But, you won't find any decent food at the Mid-Timbers park. Unless you want to go to Coasters, which is the only sit down, air conditioned place in the Mid-Timbers park. And pay $15.00 to $16.00 for a bland Mid-Timbers cheeseburger and cold fries.

Not all the food at Cedar Point is that great either. I had a footlong chili dog meal in frontier town, and the fries were horrible. I fed most of it to the birds. It really shocked me too, because I always felt that Cedar Point had awesome fries. I guess you have to get them while they are fresh, and not sitting around waiting for someone to buy them. Like at the Mid-Timbers Park.


I didn't do it! I swear!!

I'm amazed to read two people dislike the pizza at Knoebels. By many people it's considered very good, not just for 'park' pizza either. Often I've driven two hours, rode 1 or 2 rides and almost always have a slice ( or two ) but usually leave with a whole pie. You folks don't just think its not the greatest but you actually dislike it. I know the PPP pizza is Cesari's but was yours also Bunky? There is a lesser pizza elsewhere in the park at the Oasis.

And?

I can tell you exactly why I don't like the pizza. It is extremely greasy, the pepperoni is weird tasting, and the pie was burned in some places and nearly cold in other places. Plus, the wait for this pizza was about half an hour to 40 minutes. I won't wait that long for real pizza, let alone amusement park pizza, even if it IS good.

However, I don't go to a park for pizza, and out of all the food choices I can make at Knoebels, pizza would normally be my last choice. It was just what everyone else wanted. This time, I will eat something different.

Not a huge fan of any pizza made in a tunnel oven and didnt think Cesari's pizza was that good... it's OK but you have better options elsewhere.

We usually go to the international food court for lunch and the little sit down restaurant for dinner, and have a few orders of Tri Taters inbetween LOL.

And? I felt it surprising, that's all. It's a popular item in a park known to have good (and large selection) of food. Oh, it can be greasy particularly with pepperoni. I will admit to being disappointed on more than one occasion when hardened flour on the bottom made it nearly impossible to eat.

Let me explain my position on Knoebels pizza, and the reason I don't think it's very good: Lombardi's.

Beyond that, some of our local "chains" around the Cleveland/Akron area bring better pizza to my door. I like my pizza cooked either very crispy, or very doughy, I don't like a combination of both on the same slice.

The pizza is edible, but to me, it's like cafeteria pizza. Meh.

I grew up in Jersey, and I know good pizza. As far as Cesari's is concerned, it's a small step above LaRosa's.

But taking Knoebels food as a whole, there are foods I simply cannot get in FL, like pierogies and birch beer. Are they the best peirogies ever? No. But it's a tasty bit (bite?) of nostalgia from the time I park my car to the time I sadly leave Elysburg, every time.

Mr. Zero, I know. I've been hanging around here too much lately. I've become snarky at times! Lol Sorry about that. Think I was getting hungry.

I've never had good pizza, made in a tunnel oven. It just doesn't happen. Tunnel ovens were invened by one of the chains so they could take high school kids and turn out consistent pizzas.

To me, that means that Knoebles pizza is really good. I love LaRosa's pizza at Kings Island!

I guess that I am not a pizza snob. I like pretty much all pizza. I have had some bad pizza, but it's so rare that I can't even remember where. Oh, Cedar Point has pretty awful pizza, at lease the last time I was there.
