It doesn't seem like too many people on here hit it up last year. Not sure if it was due to price, location or both?


We went during the first week of the season, so I was willing to forgive the super slow service. We had the Cleveland Cheese Steak, which tasted fine but had strangely cold meat despite the cheese being perfectly melted and the bread well toasted.

TL;DR I probably wouldn't eat there again.

As to Melt!

I had the tomato soup (more of a thick paste) and grilled cheese to dip into it.

it was really good, and the qty was quite big for the cost/theme park food.

I went with TBPony, and her Mom, and I think they really liked it too.. . Liz?

I wanted to wait and see if anyone else posted photos before I did to avoid redundancy but since I’ve only seen one I felt hey, why not show off some of my fun SteVen shots from yesterday’s event! They let us get EXTREMELY close to the ride and it made for some awesome photography!

Good to hear, planning on hitting that up in June.

I'm still waiting for a gourmet Mac n Cheese bowl place...

From that same article though, they're changing their marketing slogan to "A place like no other." Definitely an interesting choice. I much prefer the "America's Rockin' Roller Coast.


They do have a Mack and cheese place. It's right under the north skyride station(near coasters dinner).
Here is a review of it...

I've eaten there several times last year and it was good. A nice change of pace and on the meal plan. That's important to me.. Topping choices were good and good quantity.

Not on the meal plan, so it's out. I don't want "sit down dining." I'm there for the rides.

I went to MELT during Halloweekends but unfortunately they were running a limited menu. The food was decent, but also very heavy. Very reasonable $$$ for the amount of food.

I did decide to try out the Platinum meal plan this year, so I doubt I'll be back unless it's for an alcoholic drink. (though it sounds like there will be more options outside of melt this year 8)) -- it looks like there will be better food options overall thanks to the overhaul of Frontier Town, in addition to the mysterious boardwalk.

Epic photos! Vengeance will be such a great ride. Riding in every row will be a goal of mine this year. :airtime:

Hopefully they can resolve the staffing issues at Melt, but I would imagine its popularity given that A). It was new B). It is the only place inside the park that has a full bar.

Interesting to hear that for the most part that it has been pretty well received and that the prices aren't too insane. While I thought that the one we visited in Cleveland was good, I felt that the bread that they use is perhaps just a bit too thick. Not sure if they use the same bread on all sandwiches, but I would prefer a thinner slice as long as it's not attempting to support like two pounds of meat and cheese! ;)

Oh...and thanks to Steve for the photos - way to represent Western NY (and the Bills) by attending the Winter Chill Out event! Looks like it would have been a lot of fun. Hope to see more photos soon!

And that drop on SV - holy freaking sheeeet, that looks more and more INSANE every time I see a different angle of it!!!! :wtf:
