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.

    • Hi Everyone!  Thank you for all your responses!  This site is so helpful and I appreciate everyone who replied to my post.   I was able to get an earlier appt with Maureen Leonard who was absolutely wonderful like you all said and after more testing and even a genetics test, my son now has a diagnosis of celiac disease.  He's been gluten free now for a few weeks.  He is doing very well on the diet so far.  He does seem to be sleeping better which was always a problem since he was an infant, so that is a good sign!  We test in 3 months and I hope that his iron levels go up. 
    • Are you substituting something for the PPI?    I'm not sure what meds will mix well with it, but you could ask the pharmacy or Dr. for advice on what might work.   I'm thinking you stopped something that may be helping in some ways, and are now allowing your symptoms to return.   If so, it makes sense to find something else to help with symptom control.   I don't know what products you have there.   We have Tums (calcium carbonate), Gaviscon (aluminum hydroxide with magnesium carbonate), Pepto and Kaopectate (same product), and Gas-X (simethicone).    I believe all of these can be taken with PPIs, but do check.    I don't know that Pepcid (Famotidine) can be mixed, but you could check that, too.   The Gas X really helps with the bloating and odd pains, as it breaks up the gas.  The Tums seems to help neutralize the acid and upset stomach / stomach pain.  These two are my mainstays.  You may have other products that could be as effective. Have you tried mixing bone broth with cornstarch or gluten-free flour to make a gravy?  Mix in some ground beef, chicken, or turkey, add some gentle veggies (carrots, or maybe a can of Chinese veggies?), a little bit of gentle spices for taste, and then put over gluten-free pasta or white rice.  Make a chicken sandwich with gluten-free bread.   Can you tolerate mayo?   Put a sprinkle of salt, pepper, and lemon juice on salmon, then coat with mayo and microwave.   Or mix some mayo with chicken or tuna for a chicken salad / tuna salad sandwich;  or eat just a scoop of it.   If you can tolerate dairy, Schar's newest version of table crackers are like saltines and are tasty.   If no dairy, try their breadsticks.  You could have either with soup or bone broth.   Schar's has enough fat to give you calories to help stave off weight loss, and you can add more by brushing a little butter on the crackers. You could try other casseroles with tuna or some lean ground hamburger.  Have you also looked at a possible new food intolerance?   I suffered for a few weeks before I figured out it was dairy for me.   Eliminating dairy wasn't enough.   I had to get rid of anything that might upset my stomach in order to start getting better.  I printed lists of low FODMAP, low acid foods, and low lectin foods, then selected only those foods that were on all 3 lists.   You might consider doing this with food lists that are right for you.  Hope this might spark some ideas!    
    •  I have a friend with MS, another with breast cancer and a third with RA.  At the same age my only problem is I cannot eat gluten!  So when I start getting frustrated about food I think about that and how lucky I truly am.  Once you get in the swing of it it gets easier and then you start to feel better which makes it all worth it.    Also when I first went gluten-free I read on this group about Mark's daily Apple and the Paleo community. I turned to that which was extremely motivating.  I've never seen so many people so excited about not eating gluten. It was a very positive energy and motivated me to find other foods to eat. Also, they love bacon! 
    • I know I needed the confirmation.  My hubby went gluten free per the very poor advice from my allergist and his GP.   It worked, but we really do not know if he has celiac disease.  He refuses to do a gluten challenge and I do not blame him.  We do know that gluten makes him sick.  He has been gluten free for 16 years.   So, when my GI suspected celiac disease, I could not believe it.  I had no tummy issues at the time, but was anemic.  Had been my whole life and it was blamed on a genetic anemia and menstruation.  I knew what being gluten free meant and I did not want to have celiac disease.  But,   I got positives  on the DGP and my biopsy.    Nothing like seeing something in writing.  I showed that to my extended family who was in denial as well.   I had a shared household with hubby all those years.  But after my diagnosis and the fact my kid started making things in the kitchen, we all went Gluten Free.  Great kid, but I could not trust her with my health!  If you DD has small siblings, consider all going gluten free.  They can eat gluten outside of the house.  That is what my kid does.
