Thursday, February 10, 2011 #516 - A Fantastic Facebook February Food Frenzy

Here at Coaster Radio, we try to focus our show on the entire theme park experience.

It's really easy to spend time talking about the roller coasters and other thrill rides.  But we think a little more time could be spent talking about the 2nd best reason to go to the amusement park... the food!

This week, listeners from around the globe call in to tell us about the iconic food treats that can be found at their local parks.  We're gonna talk about everything from the "Dole Whip" at Disneyland to the "Chip Twister" at Walibi World!

We'll also talk about that ice cream treat (pictured here) that looks like a potato.  The folks at the Idaho State Fair know how to make a dessert!

We're also honored to be joined by Dewayne Bevil from The Orlando Sentinel.  Dewayne writes for the Theme Park Rangers column and joins us this week to give us updates on some of the theme park projects in Orlando.

We'll talk about the proposed Orlando Thrill Park, New Fantasyland and the Cinderella Castle Projection Show at the Magic Kingdom.  Plus, we'll discuss the Wild Africa Trek at Disney's Animal Kindom and Star Wars II.

We'll also have a Live Trip Report and give away some prizes for Facebook February!  Are you a fan of ours on Facebook yet?  You should be!  If not, click here to get in on the fun!

Double thumbs up to the Smurf Berry ice cream cones at King's Island. My wife, a King's Island veteran, made me try it on my first visit to the park when we were dating. We also have a great picture of our daughter trying to unhinge her lower jaw to take a bite of it, on her first visit to King's Island.

They had the Potato Twister at many parks this past summer. I believe I saw it at BGW last summer.
