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.

    • Tell your medical doctor that you want a full Celiac panel before you go gluten-free.  A family history of Celiac should be enough reason to run one every couple of years.  The stool tests aren't considered medically valid, so they probably won't accept those.  It would be good to know if you actually have Celiac.  That would tell you how careful you have to be with gluten consumption.  If you don't have Celiac, it will make your life easier...you can still be gluten-free but you might be able to do things like take a burger off a bun and eat at most restaurants safely.
    • Sure, if you are feeling better from the Celiac, now you might notice other things you didn't before.     a very real possibility is that you have changed your diet and are now eating something you didn't eat much of before.  Or you are eating larger or smaller amounts of protein or fiber....that sort of thing
    • This board is quite old but I'm hoping someone can continue on this topic. I am 61 years old and in all my life and doctors' visits, I have never had a western doctor ask me if I have a family history of celiac or suggest a gluten free diet. In all honesty, I have only started having what could be considered "gluten sensitive" symptoms within the past 2 years - chronic, unexplained bouts of diarrhea, mainly. Although bloodwork has shown in the past 2 years I now have high cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure and a bone density scan showed osteopenia. My PCP put me on meds for everything, of course. I recently began seeing a naturopath - and when I was running down my health history and list of symptoms she immediately asked about the family history of celiac. My father was positively diagnosed, through biopsy, with celiac sprue about 25 years ago, when nobody talked about gluten sensitivity. Anyway, she had me do the full panel testing at Enterolab. I have one celiac gene and a gene that indicates neurological manifestations of gluten sensitivity (I have long been plagued with panic attacks and depression). I also showed extremely high (215 units, below 10 is normal) for fecal anti-gliadin and varying high results for dairy, eggs and soy. My fat malabsorption stool test also tested high (431 units and normal is less than 300). The interpretation from Enterolab and my naturopath both strongly advised I eliminate gluten from my diet for the rest of my life. Naturopath said after a year or two I may be able to try introducing limited dairy, eggs and soy back; but not until the glutin response is completely under control. I am really struggling with this. Everyone I've talked to (including adult children, spouse, other family members, friends) is skeptical about me making such a radical change in my (our) diets based on these results. They seem to view gluten sensitivity as a "fad" and think I am going off the deep end. "Get a second opinion" - or "talk to your PCP about it". I've read enough to know that my PCP will not be of much help. And since I really only had one irritating symptom that could be related to gluten sensitivity, it's not like my life will be radically improved by going gluten free. I guess I could choose to ignore the test results - for now. I'm trying to view going gluten, dairy, egg and soy free as preventative and something that will contribute to a healthier life as I age. But it's so hard ... especially when the people who mean the most to me think I'm over-reacting and kind of cuckoo. Can anyone help me out here? I feel so alone ...  
    • Hello everybody, I'm new to the forum but am so happy to have found somewhere where people living with coeliac can share their thoughts! I've only been gluten-free for two weeks.  About three days in, I started experiencing awful heartburn which hasnt let up and I'm wondering if anyone else had this after giving up gluten? It wasn't a typical symptom for me before so feeling very uncomfortable.  I am not due to see my gastro consultant again until December and my GP (who was about as helpful as a chocolate teapot!) just gave me lansoprazole (its a PPI) which isnt even touching it.  Just wondering if giving up gluten is unmasking other symptoms or if this is a normal or common withdrawal effect?  I feel like burping/belching could help but its something I've never been able to physically do. Im in my early 30s so hoping its not another thing... Any advice would be appreciated A
    • O sorry. Negative biopsy. But this was months ago but i have no energy. My teeth are rotting i feel sick all the time. And i was told by someone who has celiac that it can also be difficult to have a diagnosis cause you would have to eat 6 pieces of bread for 6 weeks in order to get a proper diagnosis. And i just know that something is up
