Wash down the day with a craft beer
The Mooseburger Lodge is gone, which might make us more sad if it hadn’t been replaced with Full Throttle Sports Bar. With dozens of flat-screen TVs and sports memorabilia on the walls, Full Throttle is the one real restaurant in the park where you can make a reservation, get table service, and even drink a cold Stone IPA.
Stay the night in Valencia
You’ve been on all the rides, you’ve screamed your entire lungs out, and now the park is closing but you’re not ready to leave town. Avoid the long drive home and crash in Valencia instead. The park has tons of lodging deals at nearby hotels, from the Embassy Suites to the Hilton, where you can take a dip in the pool, order a pay-per-view movie, and give your lungs a good night’s rest.
