Fast food at Ratanga Junction

Fast food at Ratanga Junction
I've sung Ratanga Junction's praises in my last two posts - so to add some balance to the mix I thought I'd express my opinion about the food outlets trading in the theme park.

As with any theme park, I guess, one's not allowed to bring food or drinks into the park - which means that the park's able to charge a premium for food that's not of a particular high quality. The situation basically feels to me like: "eat what there is and pay our price, or starve".

Now, I guess I should confess that I haven't visited Ratanga on a normal-operating day for a couple of years, so it's possible that I wouldn't feel as ripped off and dissatisfied as I did those years back. It's also possible that folk who love greasy fast food wouldn't mind paying premium to enjoy lunch in "The wildest place in Africa".

What's your experience of Ratanga Junction's catering been? How about similar theme parks? Am I being silly, are they all pretty much the same?

    When I was there on Sunday I bought a very modest burger/fries/coke for 3 people. It cost R190, which in itself isn’t *that* horrible. But the quality was awful. For that price I could have gotten Nandos for us outside, but the food was so bad that I’d even rather have Mcdonalds.

    I agree with you, it is a case of “eat what there is and pay our price, or starve”. It’s like some form of extortion :)

    Ah Jonathan, you’ve dashed my hopes. I can see that we’re going to have to resort to smuggling in nommy homemade sandwiches. :-/

    Thanks for the feedback!
