In the past couple seasons, the Cedar Fair parks have been making a move towards the fresh, hand breaded chicken tenders vs the frozen ones they have been selling for years.

Kings Island really set the bar high with their Chicken Shack tenders that are a staple for all of our visits to the park. Then Cedar Point followed with the reintroduction of the Frontier Inn hand breaded chicken tenders. Of course you can also get hand breaded chicken tenders at Carowinds Harmony Hall or Harbor House or further north at Kings Dominion’s Jukebox Diner.

Now almost all of the Cedar Fair parks offer a hand breaded chicken tender somewhere in their parks.

Knott’s Berry Farm recently took the opportunity to refresh their menus at the new Knott’s Soak City Longboard’s Grill. Guests will also love that they can use their Knott’s Berry Farm dining plans inside Soak City!

Longboard’s Grill offers a variety of great options and we decided to try the new hand breaded chicken tenders.

The tenders were great! You can really taste the difference with the nicely spiced breading and really tender chicken.

The hand breading really puts them a step above the chicken tenders served throughout the rest of Knott’s.

The fries has a slight crunchy coating and were really good!

Like any meal at Knott’s, it is best to eat your food with some boysenberry punch.

Knott’s Soak City opened their gates for the 2017 season on May 20, 2017. The park will reopen for daily operation beginning May 26. New for 2017, Knott’s Soak City debuted seven new slides on two new slide towers, Shore Break and The Wedge including; a fully remodeled Longboard’s Grill, additional seating areas and new spacious cabanas.

The 1.8 acre expansion of Soak City took place on the site of the former raft ride Pacific Spin and a section of adjoining parking lot.

We were at Knott’s Soak City for the season opening and had a fantastic time! Overall we were really impressed as everything in the park felt refreshed and new. The landscape department also did an amazing job bringing out the beauty of the park.

The new Longboard’s Grill still needs the exterior signage, but the inside is really nice. The menu consists of lots of fresh new options including hand breaded chicken tenders, fish & chips, burgers, grilled chicken, assorted deli sandwiches, wraps and salads.
