Forgive my ignorance but isn't hot pressed peanut oil generally okay for peanut allergy people?
Isn't that what food stand use? The hot pressed?
I have been staying away from asian food because I hear a lot of asian eateries use cold pressed peanut oil but hot pressed is fine.
Maybe I'm wrong. I'm just learning about all of these things.

The one type of peanut oil is "supposed" to be safe for pa individuals, but a lot of posters here just don't trust it. How do we know which kind they use. And the labels don't always say which type it is. Then there are the mixed messages we send our kids about avoiding peanuts but maybe the oil is okay. It's just better to avoid it, IMHO.

We went there a few years back and someone in our group pointed out the sign. I sent them an email at the time and never received a response. Since we avoid all peanut oil, we never went back.

We have gone several times over the years and never had a problem. We wouldn't eat the food made there (we bring all of our food anyway due to mfa). Actually, I think that any place that has ice cream cones carries more of a risk for the milk allergic, due to the drip and spill factor (not that we would stay home).
The park is nice and small, they have simple rides for young children, a dress up theater with shows, and there is a water park and water slide area included.
The peanut oil signs are a bit disconcerting, but I would be surprised if there was a real risk to going (not eating the food, just going to the place).

I dont know what the risk would be to going there. I do know that if my son saw the signs it would cause him anixety and thats enough for me to stay away at this point. He is 9 1/2 and he is trying to sort this out in his head so right now its not worth the aniexty it would caus ehim. kwim?

I agree about the anxiety and the general issue of does a family amusement park HAVE to use peanut oil when there are other alternatives?
And to the point about regular peanut oil being ok, how do you know it's regular peanut oil? I think its safer to avoid...not something I want to "test" during a day at the amusement park.
