I hope I can make it. I haven't been to the previous ones so it seems pretty cool to check out. Do you just enter it through the parking lot? It says with valid admission but it looks like its in the parking lot so how does that work?

It is but you enter from inside the park. We went one time, the food from the trucks I sampled was really good.

It says "food and wine sampling costs an additional fee" but only lists the price of the wine tasting. If you just want food I guess you pay at each truck separately?

You enter from inside the park. I believe last year they had people entering from a gate near GL or Ka.

Correct. Wine is the fee listed, Food is just the cost of the food item at the trucks.

Anyone go today?

Not me, but I am going tomorrow. Hopefully crowds are low; I know it'll be crowded Monday and Tuesday with NCSY visiting, but I have school both days though.

I'm not trying the food though, but, I will try Kingda Ka in the front row for the first time. I don't care how long the wait it is, I'm doing it!

^ Enjoy it! Ka front row is really awesome!

 

I'm also gonna be in the park for a bit tomorrow, I'm going to go on a few rides and then try out some of the food. Since I'm busy most of May it's my last chance to go until Memorial Day weekend.

If you get there when it opens the line shouldn't be that bad. I think I only waited 4 or 5 trains, totally worth the wait though! It's an incredible feeling in the front row with all the air being blown directly in your face.

I think it differs by truck, with a good handful only accepting cash.

 

 

I went yesterday and was compelled to try a few of the trucks. The cheesecake on a sticks are amazing. As well as the Mac and Cheese from the blue truck. (I think it was called Baby Bell or something)
