Gluten Free At Cedar Point In Oh

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

HI

My dad and I are thinking of going to Cedar Park in Sandusky Ohio. I was wondering if anyone has been there and might know about any food they have that is gluten free or if I should prepare all my own.

Thanks,

Hello,

I haven't been there since I went gluten free, but I've heard there are some gluten free food options there. There is some information on their website http://www.cedarpoint.com/public/park/food/special.cfm. It doesn't look like a whole lot of options, but depending on what you like, it might get you by, especially if you bring a few snacks of your own. Have fun if you go!

Having worked there for 2 years and seeing food operations first hand, there are going to be cross contamination issues if you are extremely sensitive.

Ahhh...memories :D We used to go to Cedar Point almost every year--it's about a 3 hour drive from here. Now, I'd much rather lie on a beach and read a book, then get whiplash on a ride ;)

I haven't been to Cedar Point in years, so I'm not sure what is around there lately but google restaurants near it and you may even find an organic eatery?? The best thing you can do to prepare for your trip is to research ahead of time. Are you planning to stay overnight? If so, check the internet for nearby restaurants close to your hotel. There are several large chains like Outback that have gluten-free menus available. If not, call guest services at your hotel and at Cedar Point to speak with the chef of the local eateries. Explain your needs and discuss their willingness to offer gluten-free food prep options, llike a hamburger no bun (cooked in a freshly sterilized saute pan if necessary). Most are willing to work with you. You could order a salad, no croutons. Ask in advance what brands of dressings they use. A baked potato is OK. Bring fruit or gluten-free cereal, or bars for breakfast. People are more health conscious in general, I think, so finding a yogurt on the run is pretty easy.

Let us know what you find out!! My little one will surely be asking to go soon enough.

So I'm back from my day trip to Cedar Point. It went mostly well. The only problem was that I didn't really trust the cooking because of CC. I couldn't see them prepare my food. Since then I have been feeling intermittently dizzy. I don't know if that is from the rides or from some new glutened symptom (no gi problems). I just ended up eating food bars I took with me. Though when we went to customer service the person was really friendly and had a list for us of what should be gluten free.

You can try guest relations or the food service office, but you'll pretty much just get the standard list of what's supposed to be gluten free and that's about it. They are not particularly helpful in any guest relation respect to begin with, and food has been a touchy area for several years for people with many kinds of diet issues. The reason I said what I did is because I know that the food service workers are pretty much teenagers who don't really want to be there or care about being efficient, attentive to details, or bothered with any changes or special orders. Knowing how sensitive some people are, I try to warn people when I can.

There are no organic places to eat anywhere near CP, it's a very small midwest town with the majority of the restaurants along Rte. 250. Last time I was up there, there was a Quaker Steak and Lube (but experience has taught me you have to be extra careful to be very clear to them when you order. My DH ordered boneless chicken wings off of the gluten-free menu and they still put a pita on it.), and most other chain restaurants. There is a Wal-Mart and a Meijer on the same strip, you might be able to find some gluten-free foods there if you take want to take a cooler of safe foods with you. And to be brutally honest, it'll probably be much cheaper to take your own food and taste better. The park food has pretty much sucked for about 4 years and is way more expensive than it should be for that quality.
