Six Flags Magic Mountain (Socal)

Has anyone been to Six Flags Magic Mountain in Los Angeles recently?  Their website has a list of all of the eateries in the park and one, the "Cyber Cafe," says they have "gluten free items like cheese lasagna, pasta with meatballs, fudge brownies, and muffins."  Has anyone eaten there?  Do they really have those things?  What about cross-contamination?  I plan to call or email them for more information, but I also want to know anyone's personal experiences.  I'm so used to Disneyland being a safe haven for gluten-free food that I fear they've spoiled me for other theme parks.

I haven't been there in years, but I'm sure their gluten free items are pre-packaged/frozen.  In that case, you might be better off bringing your own muffins or brownies as 1) they'll taste better and 2) you'll save cash!  Let's face it, Magic Mountain isn't on the same level as Disneyland.  I'd be concerned about  cross-contamination.

I was curious, so I looked at their website.  I wouldn't wait until I got there.  I would email first.  If you have a doctor's note that might help.  Just bring in the basics that you couldn't get safely at the park.  Meaning- buy the drink or the Skittles at the park.

Thanks for the replies.  Spending the cash on the food isn't too much of an issue if it's going to make eating there a bit more convenient.  Giving them a call is something I'm planning on doing anyway.  I was really looking for any recent personal experiences at the park regarding their supposedly gluten free food.  I had hoped to not have to rely on snacks the entire day or have to leave the park mid-day for an actual meal (I don't do well without at least one full meal a day).  Eating out is always a calculated risk.  I don't have a reaction to minor cross-contamination, but blatant, not-even-trying is what I want to avoid.

    • Soft blended, soups, porridge, Personally I had to avoid the follow for my last gluten attack Spices (made it burn),  any carbs, sugars even in trace amounts caused gas, We normally suggest removing dairy and oats also as they become problematic during healing. Simple soft cooked egg dishes (coconut/almond meal quiche and microwaved omelettes), nut meal porridge sit best for me. Many swear by peppermint and camomilla tea, and peptobismal but neither of those work for me personally, other swear by Imodium for the D.

      There is a product out there that is supposed to lessen the symptoms of a exposure called GlidainX that helps to break down some of the gluten in the intestines so it is not as bad but you have to take it right after realizing the issue. Not tried it personally but after my last exposure and the following 4 weeks of random bouts of D I had I would have tried anything lol. MY D did no stop til my antibodies went back down and my exposure was a low and slow exposure to a CCed food staple....
       
    • Hi lex, I haven't tested anything with NIMA myself, since I don't have one.   I did find some honey sites that claim they have gluten-free honey.  This is just a couple I found in a quick search.  It seems to me honey is made from nectar of flowers.  The nectar is a precursor to the seed.  So the seed isn't formed until the flower is fertilized.  Then gluten is formed as the seed matures.  So normally I think there is little chance of honey having gluten in it because the nectar and gluten are not present at the same time in the plants. I don't think it's impossible for honey to somehow get some gluten in it.  Honey from china has been adulterated with other things already.  Generally high fructose corn syrup.  But who know what else they put in it? I think's its safer to buy local honey where you know the farmer than imported brands IMHO. If there were a large flour mill in the area where the honey was being harvested I'd be a little wary of it myself.  At least for honey produced during the harvest season. http://www.barkmanhoney.com/faqs/does-honey-contain-gluten/ http://www.capilanohoney.com/au-en/faq/is-your-honey-gluten-free Is your honey gluten free?       Honey is naturally free of gluten. It does not contain wheat or its by-products. Our honey is 100% pure and natural, nothing has been added to it, therefore it is 100% gluten free. In addition to this, no gluten containing products are handled or stored in our packing facilities.  
    • Hi everyone! New to the forum. I was diagnosed in 2012, told to never eat gluten again, and never had a follow-up or anyone really care about the diagnosis. My Endo checked my vitamin D levels (the low level and genetic history lead to my diagnosis) bi-annually which have remained now in the normal range. This level is what I was always told determined if absorption was happening or not. I have never heard of the things everyone on here gets tested for  I feel so cheated out of my health in a way. anyways. I have severe, severe brain fog. I used to be so smart, sharp, witty, focused. I even have some personality changes and severe anxiety. I was put on Xanax after I was diagnosed but my tolerance to that medication is outrageous. I have to take three times the prescribed dose (my doctor knows this) in order to get any relief/clarity. I have a weight problem even though I work out four days a week (with a trainer), probably due to my flip floppy thyroid levels. Anyways, that’s my story! I have appointments with a new PCP, Endo, and GI doc in March! Just wanted to share with you all because you’re so kind and helpful. If anyone has any advice for this brain fog, I would be so appreciative.  I should also mention that I was extremely smart and sharp before stopping gluten, ironic? Like the lack of gluten dumbed me down 🙈 I never ever cheat. I know restaurants aren’t 100%, but I rarely chance that. There may be SOME cross contamination but I never feel repercussions.  Thanks for reading ☺️
    • Does anyone one have the symptom of period like cramps?  After menopause?
    • I have an ipad and iphone - so not sure if these exact games are available to you. I like a word game called word crossy.  Also "1010" games are good to try.  Picross style games can be fun
