^^^ I'm all about them potato cakes. Must-eat for me every time I'm there. They moved the stand this year so now you can get them right on the main midway section.

Hasn't Bill already given you the rundown?

As someone who has eaten good pizza (Macks), don't expect Cesari's to be close to that level.

If you get there early before the park opens rides, get a French Toast meals at the International Food Court
At Totem Treats, I like the corn nuggets, my niece loves the fried pickles (not my thing). Cheese on a stick has not been the same for 3-4 years. Still good, but not exceptionally since they made changes.
Across from the Satelite ride pad is frozen sweet tea (if that sounds appealing)
Fresh grilled corn in the husk, opposite the log flume

Yes of course he has, and we're going together. But I know TPR loves this park and just wanted other suggestions as well. I feel like I need a few days to eat all the good food at this park and quite frankly I might be more excited about the food than the ride offerings. lol

Thanks for the suggestions everyone, everything sounds incredibly good. Frozen sweet tea and fried pickles are definitely in my wheelhouse. I heard the pork chop on a stick is good (from a non-enthusiast friend who frequents the park).

I’d also recommend the supreme sweeties (international food court), the apple cider slush from the apple stand across from Sattelite, and the French fry stand next to Power Surge, which is much better than Potato Patch. Also the boom shakalaka burger (Phoenix junction) is great if you get it as a chicken sandwich.

I can confirm this. It's deceptively simple - a thick center cut chop, skewered, season with Lawry's Season Salt and grilled. But man, is it good. There's a deluxe option with apples (or there used to be, haven't been in a couple of years) that is also very good but unnecessary.

I had the boom-shak-alaka at the Phoenix Junction and it was GREAT!!! I'm not a canoli person but the ones at the Cookie Nook were very good too.

Cesari's gets a boost in taste being in Knoebels like a hot dog does at a ball park. Tastes like being there. The good pierogis taste like what it feels like being there.

I double fist the sour apple and apple cider slushes. Can't choose between them.
Meister Brau just wants a path from CC to SM at SFA, meal plan burrito, some shade, and a restroom back there.

Definitely go with a pork chop on a stick, it's always delicious and tender.

If you're an ice cream guy, hit up the Old Mill for either a massive sundae or an ice cream sandwich made with Pop Tarts.

I saw that 2 weeks ago and just couldn't do it.

So, it's that time of year again, where I dream about going to Knoebels, due to their famous PPP event! However, it's been a couple years since I've given it serious thought, so refresh my memory... What is the deal with PPP again? I know that it's an event on Saturday the 5th that is open to everybody, but isn't there an enthusiast only part of the event as well? Perhaps on Friday the 4th? If somebody could catch me up to speed on the details of that, as I can't seem to find much online regarding the enthusiast aspect of the event. Thanks!

Also, if I don't go during PPP, but go on a different weekend this Fall, I see there are Day Passes on Saturdays then. However, it mentioned there are a "selection of rides open." Does anybody have any insight into what that usually means? I'm assuming the coasters will still all run, but I'd hate to miss any of the great flats, too! Thanks again, for any and all insight!
