PARKS: HOLD ON TO YOUR STOMACH

These days, amusement parks need the $$$, so they're even making grub into an attraction. Line up, grab a seat and hold on... to your fork.

UNIVERSAL STUDIOS
Price: $19.95 for a food pass at the Hollywood park.
How it works: You pay once, but can go back all day for seconds--who needs the rides?
Menu: Shakes, hamburgers, coffee and pizza. But when you jump on the Mummy coaster, don't toss your toppings.

SEAWORLD
Price: $32 for lunch at the San Diego park.
How it works: An all-you-can-eat buffet with Shamu as the side dish. It's been such a whale of a hit, the park is building a larger dining area.
Menu: Chicken, beef, salad and seafood, too. Just don't feed the fish fish.

DISNEYLAND
Price: $21.99 for breakfast.
How it works: You chow while Cinderella's godmother bobbidies around. Princesses are big: the other resort, in Florida, invites them to six mealtimes.
Menu: Mickey-shaped waffles, pumpkin muffins and Princess Swancream puffs.

SIX FLAGS
Price: $75 to rent your own cabana on weekends at the D.C. water park; food is extra.
How it works: You lounge, a server brings meals to your tent. But couldn't you do the same at the Holiday Inn?
Menu: Beer, funnel cake, corn dogs, nachos. Now, who wants to take a dip?
