Mobile Food Ordering Comes to SFGAm

Talk about anything that has to do with Six Flags Great America and Hurricane Harbor here.
Postby UnclePennybags on January 19th, 2019, 12:41 pm
One of the slides on Marcus Leshock's twitter feed mentions the following:

- New dining location in Hurricane Harbor serving Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches
- Remodel of County Fair Grill (CFG)
- Mobile Ordering
- Additional Soda Refill stations.

https://mobile.twitter.com/marcusleshock

It's unclear if the mobile ordering will be just for CFG, or if it'll be available elsewhere. In any case, this is a step in the right direction. I make it a point to recommend mobile ordering whenever I do a survey. On some days, the line for food can be longer than for a ride. One less line to stand in makes me happy.

P.S. The additional soda refill stations are nice, too.

Mobile ordering was briefly mentioned on the last earnings call. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was at most restaurants across all parks.

Just hope that the mobile ordering works with the Season Dining Pass, unlike those kiosks they had that didn't...

Does anyone know where they'd put the new restaurant in Hurricane Harbor?

To the right of the Pink Flamingo Cafe, there's a building "wing" similar to the one to the left (Paradise Pizza). Right now, that section is built out with a couple of refill stations. This is the only vacant spot I can think of that could house a new dining location in Hurricane Harbor.

They did confirm at No Coaster Con that it would go to the right of Pink Flamingo. Somewhere next to it at least.
1.) Steel Vengeance 2.) Maverick 3.) Goliath (SFGAM) 4.) Top Thrill Dragster 5.) Mystic Timbers
Ragin Cajun and Iron Wolf went from Six Flags Great America to Six Flags America. I guess they weren't GREAT anymore.

Here's a link to that survey:

It gives you a nice preview of what it's supposed to look like. I like it so far.

Took it the other day when I got the email. Don't necessarily like the idea don't start cooking you meal till you arrive. Potentially if there is a big regular food line of people ordered but waiting, you could get still get stuck in a good wait.

It's Six Flags. There's no way there's not going to be huge waits no matter what they do.

Most of the food isn't cooked to order anyway, so in most cases, they'd just be assembling your order once you got there.

The iPhone app has a mobile food ordering button now. Clicking it says coming in 2019.

If all they do is throw the mobile ordering on top of the same level of service, they are moving chairs on the Titanic, you will still be waiting in a long line they are just moving the point of pain to make you think it isn't as bad. It will be. :P Or maybe not. LoL

One thing I've realized is that they have MANY foreign exchange students working at the park, seemingly most of them are in the foodservice areas. I think to speed up operations, they should have people that speak English well be the ones interacting with the customers.

I've been thinking that for a while now. It definitely slows down operations.

That's nothing new, back in the 90's I'm pretty sure 90-100% of foods was H-2B from Bulgaria and Croatia. With proper training they can work efficiently and effectively even with just a basic understanding of the English language
