I sort of had the best and worst food experience today, all in just a single day...
This morning I drove the family to SFA. For lunch we ate hamburgers at the Gotham City Food Court (as that was the only option we could get both kids to agree on). The burgers were the typical (barely thawed) frozen patty fare; with the fries being about the same level of quality.
Driving home (back to the Richmond area), we stopped at KD, and ate dinner at Border Burrito. I had the seasoned chicken burrito. And even though Border Burrito is far from the best KD currently has to offer, with every bite I kept thinking: "Wow! This is so much better than lunch".
Granted, part of the rationale could have also been from the park ambiance. That is, sitting on KD's International Street, looking at the fountains, with the Eiffel Tower in the background is hard to beat at a typical amusement park. Whereas of course, the Gotham City area sadly just can't compete. -Though I must admit, I do love all the Batman themes played at the later; especially whenever the Danny Elfman end credits, to the 89' Michael Keaton version, would iterate around again in the loop.
So in summary: The Six Flags food (though it of course was just burgers) is what I typically expect out of Six Flags - and is sadly about the same level of quality that we got at most Cedar Fair parks a couple of years back.
So it's amazing to think how far some of those same Cedar Fair parks have come in recent years... as I'm typically very impressed by the same burger basket at KD's Hungry Hippo (Jungle Market) and Jukebox Diner most days.
