It is not often we can say we crave amusement park food. However, Kings Island Chicken Shack, located near the Banshee roller coaster, has changed the way we forever think about chicken fingers. The majority of the time, the parks serve the standard prepared chicken tenders that leave a lot to be desired, though kids love them.
During a recent visit, we decided to use our Kings Island dining plans at the Chicken Shack, which offers guests a choice between a 3 chicken tenders meal or a chicken salad.
Our selection was for the chicken tenders (3), which are marinated for 24 hours before being hand breaded and fried. The meal is served alongside a signature sauce, fries, and Texas toast.
The chicken was extremely tender with an excellent breading, and the dipping sauce was a tremendous accompaniment to the meal. The meal is also served with a piece of Texas Toast, which was terrific and perfectly grilled. The fries, while a substantial portion, are the standard fries and a far cry from the freshly made variety. However, the meal was easily enough to share.
You know the meal Kings Island Chicken Shack hand breaded chicken tenders must have been excellent when the following days created a deep urge to want to go back and get them again.
Excellent job Kings Island team for creating a true masterpiece by reinventing the chicken tenders concept, and placing it on the dining plans!
