    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.

    I think funpix is the only thing that has a retro-carryover

    How is the Haunt conducted at KI?

    I don't really care about drinking as long as they aren't obviously drunk and being outlandish, I was just surprised someone carried it all the way to Kiddie Land and this was at 1pm on a Saturday.

    Shooting Flames on I-Street for Haunt

    Including something with high cost, and minimal viewing area to something that is meant to be able to be seen from the entire park would probably nix this idea as well.

    While not haunt related per say, I saw a dude in Kiddie Land with a cup of beer. Am I wrong in thinking that there are "no alcohol past this point" signs at the biergarten?

    I took my 4 year old to "the spooky park", she said the fire was the only thing that scared her. Most of the actors just wave and say hi when they see her.

    I believe it is loaded as soon as the confirmation is given. So yes.

    I tried to go to Mac and Cheese tonight, but a fully wrapped queue and the line still out the door turned me away. Literally the most full I've ever seen the parking lot, I parked a stone's throw from the entrance it was so full, 4 people working the front-end of Coney BBQ.

    Getting irritated at parents not watching their kids in Hanna Barbera Land and letting them cut in line.

    Renewed gold pass free tickets question

    Bring a friend ticket you just go to the ticketing booth, flash the GP and they give you a ticket. I've placed them back into will-call before for someone to pick up later, I've also just turned around and gave them to someone in line. Fast Lane there is a booth just to the North of the entrance inside the park. It's near stroller rental and the measuring booth, same thing; flash the pass and they give them to you.
