    I was close to getting the RHoF Buffet tonight, but then realized I'd have to pay full price for my 4 year old to eat half a roll and say she was full. One day!
  4. Fairfield Jungle Jim's has been renovating the storage building. Added a new shed, and started clearing some of the land around the station. I wonder if they are gearing up to start doing some more stuff with the monorail there.

    Kielbasa and pierogies were surprisingly good at Festhaus. The Toybox show also kept my kids entertained through the entire thing, couldn't get their eyes off the stage.

    KIC Mobile App?

    I call it The Wreckoning. I will redownload to delete apps I only use every so often. Auntie Anne's doesn't last more than a few minutes on my phone, I've probably downloaded it a dozen times, while standing in line.
  7. Like a gentleman! I have an insulin pump, it almost always beeps. I also almost always have a multitool on and have forgotten to take it off a number of times. I've gotten into the park with it before I remember as well. Normally I check it, but some of their security protocols could be tightened. Not that I'd like yet another line to wait in, I appreciate the forethought on safety.

    I went on Saturday, it was almost empty at 5pm. But once the lights turned on, it got packed. There was 2 people in line at Larosa's when we got to the park, there was 40 in line at Smokehouse around 7pm. Kiddie Land was surprisingly un-crowded, the arts and crafts area looks like it got upgraded from coloring pages to little foam construction kits for Peanuts. One of my girls made Snoopy's dog house, the other made a pop-up present. I'm looking forward to trying some of the other offerings, Smokehouse had porkloin which looked really nice.

    Better idea!!! What if they buy a really big drone, and fly a bus with employees across the park!!! I think they should just give them all those old go-karts they used to have where Banshee is.

    Coney BBQ and 2018 Food Reviews

    It should be simple to just add a screen to scan "Entitlements". Gold Pass, Wristbands, Drink Cups, all of them at once. Then the next should should tell you which apply and if not why. Then let you cancel out, or continue moving forward. Pick your food, pick your drink all that jazz, final screen should confirm order making note of your discounts. Then confirm AND PAY or cancel. The cashier should be a glorified box checker and guide. Who again, should be flanked by the kiosks, or simply stand behind them with the drink dispenser next to them if they are worried about the pennies they will lose in stolen soda. Being told "declined" when scanning my gold pass is a useless bit of information. Did I scan it wrong, and I in-between timers, have I over used it, do I not have the plan on this one?

    I see why they did the order kiosks, but they really should have put them flanking the cashier. That way the employee can assist with questions without the person essentially having to leave the line to inquire. They can also just direct you to where you need to go. But aside from that, the kiosks are not very well designed, they can be improved on the flow of actions immensely.

    The tri-tip has been the saving grace for me at CBBQ. Ribs are a backup, luckily I can eat both cold without much loss. I'd be super happy if they actually had fresh wings there like at island smokehouse. The chicken is nice, but it looks like they aren't cooking it as long as earlier in the year. It used to have a nice crust and color, now it looks sad and lightly browned. Pulled pork doesn't have enough smoke to save it from the watery puddle it sits in. All the sides are throw aways for me. I was excited for the corn, but the turnover for it is so slow it's just cold and wet.
