GreatAmerica fan I'm right there with you! I hate it because it seems like it is more like a place for parents to park themselves stare pointlessly at sports and click away on their damn phones. Sure the food is good at Strutters anyways but did they really have to take the charm away from the original park?

I really can't stand strutters, why does an AMUSEMENT park need two sports bars? who in their right mind is going to pay $40 to get into an amusement park just to drink and watch sports in a tiny crappy "restaurant" when they can go to buffalo wild wings down the street. sorry mini rant over I just HATE theses sports bar makeovers.
My dad haaaaaated taking us to the park. It just wasn't his thing at all. Refused to get on anything more thrilling than the Hay Bailer. He would absolutely hang out a sports bar while the rest of us waited in line for hours.
