No, but its farily rare we ever ate in the park. When I used ot live there we would pack a lunch and leave it in coolers in the car. Once you by a ticket you can come and go as foten as you want. Theres even a picnic area out side, or at least thier used ot be. Only thing we got in the park was drinks. Price of food there was just outrageous. But its been prbly 10 years since i have been....

I was there before I was dignosed with celiac disease. I can't offer much help with gluten-free foods, but the place is a lot of fun! My favorite rides were the rollar coasters and the white water rafting. If you decide to go on the Batman and Robin rollar coaster, make sure you brace your neck well.

If you go make sure you try all time best coaster... Rolling Thunder! I ahve been to parks in many states and not see its match for simple rollercoasterness. :D Esply after a very light rain!

i LOVE six flags great adventure in NJ - always have, and i've been going since the year it opened.

and every year i HATED!!! the food

we usually brought our own and did the cooler in the parking lot thing.

gluten free or not, i wouldn't want to eat the park food, although i think they added some standard fast food (nathans i think), the last few years

i'll also mention that if you're buying food there, bring a few extra limbs because the food's going to cost you an arm and a leg.

bottom line - bring your food

and have a BLAST!!!

I live within a half hour of the park. Used to have season tickets every year when I was younger. I haven't been there in years though.

I agree with the above sentiments. I would bring your own food in a cooler. As everyone has said, the food was expensive, and although I had gone there years before knowing what gluten was, I wouldn't think most places inside the park would be very safe to try. The peanut butter fudge was really good though.

And Rolling Thunder is the best rollercoaster without any loops. Barely ever had a line more than 10 minutes and doubt it would now. Batman was a great ride, but I don't know about the newer ones.

Nitro is the BEST rollercoaster i've ever been on

i waited in line for kingda ka for like 3 hours and never got on because af safely issues

but nitro, so smooth, fast, steep, that's well worth the wait

but only if you're feeling good, so bring your own food and, i'll say it again, have a BLAST

I also live within a half an hour from the park. I will agree with the previous sentiments about bringing your own food. It is way too expensive and it isnt good at all. The last time I was in there, they now have a McDonalds and such, but even that is more expensive than any other Mickey D's I have seen. (not that we would eat there anyway)

But like it was previously commented, once you are in the park, you only need a hand stamp to go in and out. Its easy to get you go to the side exit and they will stamp your hand in an ultra violet stamp. When re entering you will put your hand under an ultra violet lamp and be let back in.

You will enjoy it much more if you just stock up a cooler full of food and go out there for lunch and/or dinner.

Have fun!!

My family just traveled to six flags GA in NJ this past week. Though the food is outrageously expensive they do have gluten free food.

First I will mention that I couldn't find the answer online at their website. We live close to King's Dominion in VA and there is information on their website that lists numerous places in their park and the cart stands, where you can find gluten-free food. We always print out this list and take it with us. (their prices are better too) So...I was surprised at the lack of info on gluten-free food on the Six Flags GA website. I called the Guest Relations number only to get a recording asking me to leave my question and phone number so that they could get back to me. No answer on the first day, called a second time and no answer on the second day/ call. The next day we went to the park thinking that if they didn't have gluten-free items we would go out of the park to eat. We always have gluten-free snacks in the car, but not full meals and we didn't have a cooler.

When we arrived at the park I went to Guest Relations and they hand wrote the items offered at one restaurant in the park. The one and only place where gluten-free food is available.

Here is that listing: THE MAIN STREET PUB

Pizza takes about 10 to 15 mins to cook-IT IS VERY SMALL!!

6 inch PIZZA- gluten and dairy free $10.00

6 inch PIZZA- gluten free $10.00

BROWNIE- gluten free $3.49

MUFFIN- blueberry gluten free $3.49

From a recent cruise, we knew that JOHNNY ROCKETS ( right next door ) had a few gluten free items so I went over there and bought some GLUTEN FREE FRENCH FRIES to go with my son's miniature pizza. JR doesn't advertise or know about their fries and food but some foot work and label reading on your own will get you there. I also feel a lot better eating on the early side and being the first food on the grill or in the fryer. BTW Guest Relations returned my calls from the previous days while we were in the park! Hope this helps.

    • Celiac Night Vision
      Scotomas returned for the 7th year on the 24th February despite liver pâté and have varied since with 3 brief gaps. I have always had migraine, latterly occurring more than once a month, usually of basilar or retinal type with aura (but no headache) lasting less than 5 minutes. A recent bout looked like a TIA and led to a CT scan which revealed clear major vessels but old cerebellar infarcts, so maybe migraine accounts for poor memory too. The scotomas are very different from migraine eye symptoms - stationary, irregular in shape and lasting hours. I think food is excluded as the cause but seasonality, gaps, variation with wind direction and rain mean that pollen is still a possibility. Scott Adams did a marvellous thing founding this site so celiacs could enlighten each other. Please post if you have anything like these scotomas!
    • healthy bread recipe?
      Eat what you eat at lunch or dinner.  I am happy with a fried hamburger patty, fish, or chicken (I know it needs to be fresh or frozen for the histamine diet).  Yes, I eat veggies for breakfast!   Wanted to add that I was glutened in July (GI ordered follow-up antibodies testing and it was high)  and it took me 3 months to recover.  Picked up a histamine intolerance and became lactose intolerant again.  Luckily, when I healed, the histamine thing went away (or  Diminished ) and the lactose intolerance resolved.    I was getting hives, rashes and itching (not DH), vomiting, etc.  So, her intolerances may be just temorary!  
    • Could this be celiac or is it really just IBS?
      Are you sure you had the complete celiac panel?  Here are the tests:   -Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test)     -endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken   VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.     (Source: NVSMOM -- 😊)   Here is more information from a reputable site (and not just info from a crazy cyclist on the Internet!):   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/   IBS, in my opinion, means "I Be Stumped!"  It is just a cop out!  So is the "stressed" thing.     I also had my GB out too.   It was a non-functioning (0% per HIDA scan), no stones, and rotting.     You seem to have many celiac disease symptoms.  Verify (obtain copies of your lab tests) to see if you got the complete panel. You might just have had the TTG IGA and TTG IGG tests.  Good for screening but it does not catch all celiacs.  My TTG tests are always negative even on follow-up testing.  The DGP test catches a positive for me.  My biopsies revealed moderate to severe damage.  If my celiac-savvy GI did not order the complete panel, my celiac disease diagnosis would never have been caught.   if celiac disease is really ruled out, research mast cell disorders.  The flushing and GI upset sound familiar!  You can have more than one thing going on!  But I would put my money on celiac disease!            
    • tightness in throat after eating gluten?
      I've noticed that if I accidentally eat gluten, for the next few days I have this tightness in my throat. It feels like my throat is closing. It's not constant, but comes and goes throughout the next 1-3 days. My hands have also been itchy. Is this a normal symptom for celiac or gluten intolerance, or could it possibly be an allergy? I haven't been tested or diagnosed with celiac or anything yet, so I'm still not entirely sure. All I know is that gluten makes me very sick.. But especially with the itchiness and tight throat.. I'm allergic to acetaminophen and my reaction is similar, so it just makes me wonder. What do you think?
    • Diagnosis and Test Results
      I am sorry that you are sick!  😔.  I think you need to find out which celiac antibody tests were given.  Often just the TTG Is ordered for initial screening.  This test catches most, but not all celiacs (like me!)   You also need to see if they gave you the igA deficency test too.   Here are the tests:   -Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test)   -endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken   VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.     (Source: NVSMOM -- 😊)     http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You can go gluten free, but knowing if you have an autoimmune disease is helpful.  celiac disease is genetic (you have the genes, but so does 30% of the population and that's why the gene test is used only to exclude celiac disease and not diagnose it).   All family members should be tested even if they are symptom free.   I hope you figure it out and I am sorry that you had such a horrible experience.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
