Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

P. 2017: Top Thrill Dragster RETIRED!?!?!?

Recommended Posts

Looks like the mystery restaurant that is being built across from the monster ride is Chickie's and Petes. I have never heard of this restaurant before, but I guess they are known for crab fries. Anybody ever eaten at this place before?

 

Here is a video that was just released about the upcomming summer at cedarpoint.

I wonder if they are going to carry the full menu, or a limited menu?

 

I found the full regular menu online here....

Seems like an odd choice of a restaurant for cedarpoint to go with. I guess that I was just thinking that it would have been a national chain restaurant or an in house eatery.

Someone in the CF chain clearly has good taste.

Chickie's & Pete's is AWESOME! It began in Philadelphia (where I live) and has a few stand-alone restaurants in the area, as well as stands at Lincoln Financial, Wells Fargo, and Citizen Bank Park.

 

I get it every time I'm at an Eagles or 76er's game.

 

Dorney Park has two locations. One of which is a walk-up window (I've eaten there several times) and a new sit-down restaurant. The walk-up window has a very limited menu, offering only crab fries and chicken strips (about $8 each). I'm sure the full-service location offers the entire menu, or at least close-to.

 

If you're in the park and want some great fries and chicken, Chickie's and Pete's is the place to go.

Chickie's & Pete's will probably be very popular. Whenever I drive past any of their locations near me they are always crowded and the ones on the Boardwalk like in Ocean City, NJ almost always have long lines for the fries. I wonder how much they are going to charge compared to a non park location. The last time I went to one of their restaurant's, the burgers, sandwiches and cheese steaks were almost $9 without fries.

I'm not a seafood fan, but booze and chicken wings are a favorite of mine.

 

It's not a seafood restaurant. The crab fries don't have crab in them, just seasoning that you'd put on crab. Mainly Old Bay. They're outstanding.

 

Honestly Cedar Point's food is horrible, but they have some great franchises with Famous Daves, Chick Fil A, TGI Fridays, Pink's and now Chickie and Pete's so you don't have to worry about eating the rest of the crap.

 

It's worth noting that the Boardwalk Fries cart is pretty good too but not as good as the fries at Chickie and Pete's.

^The full-menu restaurants certainly are. Maybe not in the traditional sense, but they offer various crab and other shellfish items...including a lobster cheesesteak that kicks all sorts of ass.

A few things i would like to say. The frys that you can get on the Gemini Midway are good, and with a plat pass it is a great deal. I wish that we could get beer at normal prices at Chickie and Pete's but we all know that wont happen and also will like to see how that happens, or even just more beer choices . Last why do we need to sports bars at cedar point? I willlike to see what they do with Game day grill in the next few years.

I like this...a lot.

 

And I will like it even better if they have a full bar and good beer selections to go with those yummy crab fries - although I still like the Happy Friar fries with cheese right across from Gemini.

 

It always seemed like such a long walk to get from the campground to the Red Garter Saloon or Lusty Lil's for an ice cold beer. Now it will be almost right inside the Breakers/Camper Village gate. Woo-Hoo!

How crowded can CP get during spring break? Obviously the park is like always crowded during the summer, but compare spring break to the summer. Is it on average more or less crowded? And am I correct in saying that the best days to go to The Point (with less crowds) would be weekdays days in May, when people are in school?

LOL Cedar Point is up north and opens in May. It doesn't open in time for spring break like Carowinds, KD, Knotts, and Great America.
