The name has returned to it's 1970's name: Victoria Gardens. I wonder if there 's some new things added to it this year.

The interior walls have been given a Coca-Cola wallpaper. It doesn't look bad to be honest. It beats the blank white wall they had last year.

Are Victoria's and Pizza Parlor the same pizza? If not, which is better? What is the price of a whole pizza, no drinks or sides? Thank you!

I don't know why I assumed they would be the same pizza. Is this not the case? I always thought they had the same stuff. We had Victoria's Pizza last week and thought it was decent. I'll have to try the Parlor next time.

In the past few years Victoria Gardens has served some of the worst food in the park. This year, however, it wasn't half bad. The pizza is still second to the fresh stuff at Pizza Parlor on International Street, but even my father - a picky New York-bred pizza snob - agreed Victoria's was serving good pizza this year. I think something has definitely changed here.

That said, Victoria's is such a massive, centralized restaurant that I totally think it could do more than serve overpriced pizza and breadsticks.

I think I have mentioned this before, but in the distant past they used to throw pies at Victoria's. I have always thought this could be something they could do there again, maybe not all day but certainly during certain hours, if for nothing else the show of it. Watching someone who really knows how to throw dough is very cool.

FYI, whole pizza is $35.99. 2 slices and Drink $15.59. School groups were buying whole pizzas and kids splitting it up. Day we were there it was fresh and hot because of the school groups.

7 pizzas at Little Caesars for the price of 1 at Victoria's??? Hell, I like Little Caesars better actually. Does anybody actually recommend Victoria's this year?

In all fairness, little Caesars isn't paying 12 employees through 2 shifts each time they open. I'm not justifying a $36 pizza, just bashing the comparison to a tiny 3 employee fast food pizza joint that can afford to sell $5 pizza.

The pizza place on International Street(Pizza Parlor?) surely dosnt employ 12 people at a time and I can guarantee the pizza there was much better than other amusement park pizza places. For what its worth, for the limited number of items on the menu, I dont think they need 12 people to make soggy breadsticks and "ok" pizza. I dont see why I'm ranting when there's other places to eat at the park so ill leave it at that

The soda guy in Victoria's the day we were there was leaving about 1.5" below the top of the cups when filling the drinks (not to mention 3/4 ice). I handed it back and said fill it up. Wife and I split the two slice pizza plate and drink which was plenty for the two of us. Then we discovered the Chik-Fil-A the next day. A much better choice and deal if you ask me. Get a large combo and add a sandwich which came to about $17 and change with our pass discount.

This may be a bit off topic, but the best food in the park is consistently at the eateries Chef Paul has overhauled.

I thought Six Flags in Largo was bad, good lord.

I have gone entire days without eating at amusement parks because the markup is ridiculous.
