News: Happy Friar’s Fresh-Cut Fries Fest returns to Cedar Point


You can get a vanilla malt (who else drinks those anyway?)

I guess people don’t know what they’re missing!

Regarding your theory of availability, I don’t think chili dogs, delicious vanilla malts, or fries with non-taco cheese sauce are any more available than they used to be. And, it’s not like you can’t get BBQ outside the park as good or better than what BackBeatQue serves, so I’m not convinced that availability is the reason my traditional favorites are no longer sold at CP. I suspect it’s just a matter of consolidation/inventory. If they can get away with using the same taco cheese sauce and meat for both tacos and fries, then why not? Maybe they figure that those of us who enjoy traditional park fare don’t have discriminating enough tastes to care. I may be unique in that I enjoy a good meal, and my family has dined at many high end restaurants. But, I guess for me, part of that amusement park experience is enjoying those nostalgic favorites. At Disney, I will enjoy a turkey leg for lunch, then dine at a fancy restaurant for dinner, giving me the best of both worlds.

You may have me on the “God knows how long ago” comment. I hadn’t been to CP since the late 90s or so, before returning for the past four years. I honestly don’t remember if I had a chili dog since returning, but I did have fries last year, and they had the traditional cheese. I thought Toft’s had malts up until last year, but I’m not sure.

For the record, I had no problem with the texture or temperature of the funnel cake fried shrimp I had at the Grand Pavilion; I just didn’t particularly care for the combination of tastes. I think I’m in the minority, though.

I wouldn't want to live in a world where there was no such thing as BBQ that was better than what Cedar Point served
