Has anyone been to the Farrell's Ice Cream Parlor that opened up in Saugus at the Mountasia Family Fun Center?

It would be nice to see them make a comeback. It seems that once you take away the originality and character of a place, it goes downhill. However,I don't know how well Farrell's would do here in the Sacramento area due to the lingering memories of the tragic '72 jet crash into one in south Sac. :(

The picture in the Orange County article showed a guy in a standard paper hat, not a straw hat. I hope that they will bring back ALL the 1906 visual attraction of the original, not just the name.

Has anyone been to the "new" Farrell's in Santa Clarita, in some kind of family arcade? Is it anything like the original?

I went there for my birthday a couple of years ago to relive those old memories. As my wife says,"It's nowhere near as cool as the original." I'd have to agree.

Only the envy I felt, when another table ordered a Zoo, reminded me of my youth. I always wanted the sirens and drums coming to my table!!!

The food was not good, the ice cream was ok, the decor was cheap and, in turn, really depressing -- even though they made an effort to achieve the same vibe.

It was fun to go once to check it out... but I knew that it was my last visit.

I recently have been to the Farrells in Saugus. A Pigs trough was one of my cravings when I was pregnant. One day all I could think about was Farrells and I put it on my GPS and there it was- The one in Saugus isn't as good as the one I remember in the Bay Area as a kid and the service there is TERRIBLE! Iwent there twice when I was pregnant and it took over an hour for us to get our food ( and that was on a weekday in the mid afternoon) Apparently there's on in Hawaii in Kaneohe.. I'm sure we'll be going there when we go to Hawaii in November.
Cheers,

Here's my photos of the Santa Clarita Farrell's, taken a few months ago:
