So, even though this restaurant has operated under its current name since 2008, I just now noticed the clever little joke Cedar Fair blew Paramount's way by naming it Outer Hanks. Obviously, Tom Hanks was the star of the movie Forrest Gump, after which this restaurant was named during Paramount's reign ("Bubba Gump Shrimp Shack"). So they "outed" Hanks when Cedar Fair renamed the restaurant? Get it? Outer Hanks?

I can't believe I just noticed this now.

I always thought the Outer Hanks restaurants were based on a little of both. A callback to the original restaurant and a reference to the Outer Banks.

Considering every other Paramount-era Bubba Gump's was given the same name/conversion, I think its still more of a callback.

The sign at Outer Hanks was (finally!) replaced this weekend.

For comparison, here's what it looked like just last weekend:

Video below is from Clint on the Kings Dominion Season Pass Holders Facebook site. Shows a new ordering system for park patrons who have one of the 3 meal plans. Clint said this system is also in the Jukebox Diner. I think this could be a time saver for those with a meal plan.

Did this place ever serve po'boys? We went in hoping they had them but it was standard fried fair (fish, shrimp or chicken strips) and grilled chicken sandwiches. I really wish they had a better selection in the park. Everywhere seems to be the same.

I see they used to have them on the 2014 menu posted as well as BBQ sandwiches. Didn't see those options anywhere on the menu Sunday.

I think the po boys went to the new restaurant in the water park area when it opened last year. They do have at keast 3 places with bbq around the oark. It's been my experience that over the last 3 or 4 years they done a nice job changing out the kd brand restaurants so that each one is a little different.
