Hello all,

My DD is going to six flags tomorrow and I plan on packing her lunch and dinner but am wondering if there are any food or snack options . Springfield Ma. six flags

ANyone have any actual experience at this Six flags?

She is going with another family so I cannot check out the options myself and I have not had luck getting thru via phone to informative people there.

The only thing I know about the food at 6 flags is that outside food is NOT allowed in the park, you have to go through the easy process of leaving your park, getting your hand stamped, then returning through the proper gate. You must eat outside food in the parking lot. They won't even let you bring in a water bottle. I tried last summer, when it was over 90 out and I take a medication where you need to drink tons of water and I still wasn't allowed to take it in since they sell water in the park.

I have not been to that specific park but i have been to two others and neither had any gluten-free options

also even though you are not allowed to bring food into the park you can get a dr note and they will let you bring in food (did this for a class trip when i wasn't alowed to leave the park) and then you can get a locker inside to store the food in until lunch. I would make sure that the family she is going with is well aware of how strict of a diet she is on so they don't offer her unsafe things.

best of luck

Update:

Six flags New England offers 2 gluten free foods :dippity dots and soft serve ice cream , lol

i was told no problem bringing food into park for Celiacs as they have no alternative food options.

The family is very much aware of the issue's and even caught a mistake I made this past summer, SO I know she won't be getting anything unsafe. Just stinks she is only one bringing her own food for dinner, all 6 of the others will be eating there.

Oh well the rides should make it worth it.

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
