These people make every other theme park in America look like downright THIEVES when it comes to food prices!!

Check this out! This is their sit-down restaurant's menu.

If admissions is where the majority of the money BGW makes, then lower the dang prices on food! More people will come!! I'd be willing to bet more people would gladly take the admission price in stride knowing that they're not going to have to pay roughly an equal amount (or more for some people...you never know) in food/beverages.

And if Knoebels can pull this off and still make a profit, forgive me, but Jesus Mary & Joseph, so can BGW and the rest of the SeaWorld parks. Shoot, this might even entice annual passholders to visit more often if the food was less expensive. I know it'd bring ME & my entire family out from Richmond more often, that's for sure.

Holiday World has better prices on meals, especially when you add to the fact that you get free beverages all day.

Knoebels is also in a very isolated area not near any major metropolitan cities. They really can't get away with charging prices like major corporate parks can. The park is very small and family owned and don't pull in the revenue like the big parks do so the prices you see in their menu are reflective of their market.

And if you're complaining about food prices at BGW you must not have ever been to a Cedar Fair or Six Flags park! A slice of pizza at Six Flags America last summer was $7.99.

I went to Knoebels last year and agree that the food was very inexpensive. Obviously, with as many menu items as they have I couldn't do a representative sampling, but I thought the food I tried wasn't very good...except for the apple slices with caramel sauce and whipped cream...those were amazing. Items I tried that I thought were not too good included fried fish, a fried brownie, potato pancakes, spaghetti, garlic bread and fried chicken. It could have been a bad day for them. All fried foods were dry and overcooked. Spaghetti was totally mushy...garlic bread crusty all the way through. Potato pancakes tasted like oil was stale. I tried my children's and husband's food as well as my own.

I had the spaghetti there once and found it "mushy" as well. The noodles were way overcooked.

I also find their pizza to be overrated.

Their French Dip sandwich is pretty good though.
