The Mason amusement park unveiled several new menu items for its 40th anniversary season this year, including gourmet and healthier options, as well as improved flavors on some old classics.
Park officials spent several months in the off season developing the new flavors, which they say emphasizes freshness and quality. There’s a showmanship aspect to the menu, too, with many of the new items prepared or assembled while you watch.
“People go home and remember riding Diamondback. We want their food experience to match the thrill ride experience,” said Don Helbig, KI spokesman. “There’s something new at almost every location in the park.”
