I hope that the message the parks
hear from these reviews, and reader comments, is that there is a hunger out there (literal and metaphoric) for high-quality dining within a themed entertainment experience.
Frankly, upgrading the food and service in a restaurant is the most cost-effective and swiftest way for a park to create a premium entertainment experience. It takes months, even years, to build a world-class attraction. Shows can take weeks, or months, and require significant stagecraft investment.
Hire a top-quality chef and front-of-the-house help, then procure some high-quality ingredients, and you're good to go on a restaurant. The expense is minimal compared with even an off-the-shelf ride and the returns can be spectacular.
I don't want Mythos to rest on its laurels. I want Sharks to step up and provide the caliber of food that I know darn well BEC can provide. Those are two of the reasons I asked Scott to do these reviews and why I am commenting now. Let's keep the parks' feet to the fire and demand the best in food and service that they can provide, as we've demand the best in rides and shows in the past.
