Could you post picture of what it says for those without Facebook?

I 2nd this motion. It is a closed group, so if you are not a member you can't see it anyway. Just add the link so the source is referenced with the picture.

I mentioned it earlier when someone said they should make Melt the new VIP that they replaced the tent with basically a glorified picnic shelter.

I am not sure how big the prestige pass base is at CP, but you could have an outside and a separate inside VIP. That does look much better than the temporary tents from before.

The link is to a video review and not photos.

Yeah, but you would think the flagship park would have the best Lounge?

The lounges were built to a budget not a quality level.  The parks with nicer lounges reused existing infrastructure.  Just renovating an existing building is a lot cheaper than building something from scratch.

Yeah and one would think they would give the flagship park the biggest budget?  They could have turned Johnny Rockets into the inside VIP instead of yet another arcade....

And the ones they renovated they took away a meal plan option to convert to the higher priced pass.  Tells you where their mindset is at...

KI has a restaurant that sits vacant most of the year that they could have easily made a VIP Lounge at little costs and used their famous "subject to availability" line for days it is used for something else.  And then throw up a tent for the days the International was used as something else.

And depending on the extent of the renovation, sometimes it is cheaper to build from scratch.  How many restaurants do we see tear down and rebuild on same site or simply move just down the street.  Kroger does the same thing.

That’s because the people who make these decisions don’t actually use the lounges themselves. :P

It’s like when they extended FoF’s queue. It can be 100 degrees outside and they rather use  the outdoor line and have hardly any of the indoor climate control queue open. Whoever made that decision too doesn’t wait in lines. And as you mentioned that’s already built in infrastructure that can be utilized to enhance guest experience.

Oh they put you out in the outdoor line to make you thirsty for the new drink bars going in - gotta squeeze those extra nickels out of the guests already in the park :P

They managed to figure out how to keep the beer cold and not "stolen" yet couldn't figure out the same for the bottled beverages...

That's hilarious to be honest. We've got your $ for the lounge, now pay us for generic KI gear! $26.99+ for shirts, $19.99 for hats, fanny packs, and bottles. $9.99 for lanyards and glasses straps, more for electronic items. 

Terms/items/prices subject to change.

It’s being done chain wide for CF.
