Get ready for an episode full of reviews! This includes Time Traveler, Copperhead Strike, Tigris, Popcorn Revenge and Wilderness! In that area, RMC Hybrid Untamed will open soon and we talked to park director Mascha Van Till!

Alexander: As theme park food festivals rapidly become commonplace (even among regional parks), the gold standard is widely regarded to be Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival. While it’s certainly the most famous, popular, and expensive theme park food festival, we’d like to argue against it being the best.
Enter: SeaWorld’s 7 Seas Food Festival.
