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.

    • Feeneyja, This will be a little long but I will  try to be brief as possible. See this discussion thread that talks about how Pellagra is often diagnosed as other disease's today because doctor's rarely recognize it today in a clinical setting. Pellagra's is described as the 3 D's if you don't count the 4th D of death if it goes long enough and is not diagnosed in a timely manner. Dementia (Neurological) Digestive (GI problems), Dermatitis issues (Ezcema, Psorsias, Acne etc.) According to mdguidelines website http://www.mdguidelines.com/pellagra indicates that quoting “The diagnosis of pellagra is straightforward when the classic rash is present but may be elusive if there are only gastrointestinal and/or neurological manifestations.” And why I believe in many cases Pellagra goes undiagnosed today.  Because doctor's have forgotten how it presents. A longer researcher article about the neurological presentations of pellagra mention the many ways a Niacin deficiency can present itself. Here is the link https://www.hindawi.com/journals/cggr/2012/302875/ and I will quote some of the neurological/dementia related symptom's of an undiagnosed pellagra patient. "Mental symptoms were wider than dementia, in that depression, fatigue, psychomotor retardation, mania, obsessions, and a whole range of psychoses with auditory and visual hallucinations were well described, along with personality change and sociopathic and drug and alcohol addictive behaviours. Panic disorders were seen as was a general inability to deal with physical or mental stress. Poor brain development such as hydrocephalus or cerebral palsy was also common. Acute delirium or even coma occurred, with some patients having myoclonus and other extrapyramidal signs reminiscent of the spongiform encephalopathies. The dementias of pellagra included features akin to Lewy body, Alzheimer’s, frontotemporal, vascular, and prion diseases. Parkinsonism was also common and a festinant gait was first described in pellagrins. Tremors of various descriptions, including asymmetric rest tremors, were noted and some patients had typical paralysis agitans. Pellagrins had a characteristic expressionless facies, so some signs of parkinsonism were present in most cases. Many features of pellagra closely resemble the nonmotor aspects of PD. The neurological manifestation did not stop there because other degenerative conditions, such as an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-like picture, were described, with fasciculation of the tongue and upper and lower motor neuron signs. Cerebellar syndromes occurred and vertigo was frequent. Headaches, sensory and pain syndromes, epilepsy, and involuntary movements were noted as well as sleep disturbances. Cord lesions were also seen, as was optic atrophy, so there were multiple sclerosis (MS), like variants." It is me again. You can see the neurological symptom's of Pellagra are severe and wide ranging. Taking Niacinamide 3/day for 6 months can alleviate many of these symptom's if your daughter has subclinical pellagra and the doctor's don't know to look for it. I had deep depression for many, many years and I shudder to think now that only a Vitamin could of helped me 30+ years ago and the doctor's didn't know to look for it. Shoot it isn't just Niacin.  All B-Vitamin's help your stress levels.  IF you have stress B-Vitamins can help your stress levels. I take Folic Acid for Blood pressure problems and it keeps my BP with in a normal range. A article on celac.com discussed this topic in detail a few months ago. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html I hope it is helpful.  Good luck on your continued journey. If you have never heard of Pellagra you are not alone. Dr. Heaney discusses why this is so in his online article Pellagra and the 4 D's. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ If you don't have time to read the whole hindawi article I also suggest this shorter but informative blog about why a Niacin deficiency can cause dementia related conditions. https://pellagradisease.wordpress.com/ Then decide for yourself and your daughter's sake to decide whether to take Niacinamide or not to see if it helps the D's symptom's she is experiencing (Digestive, Dementia etc.) The International Journal of Celiac Disease makes note of this in their research that Pellagra could be contributing to symptom's being diagnosed as Celiac disease today instead of a possible (co-morbid) Pellagra that causes the same symptom's. When they discuss how Pellagra and Celiac disease are related (Co-Morbid) in a Celiac diagnosis are surprised to find that in 58% of Celiac's -- can also be diagnosed with Pellagra. See this link http://pubs.sciepub.com/ijcd/3/1/6/ Quoting 3. Pellagra and celiac disease "The two diseases can be connected in two aspects. 58% of pellagra patients were shown to have malabsorption and many had intestinal pathology on biopsies [36, 37]. Alternatively, Pellagra was described in celiac disease [38]. The skin manifestations in pellagra might have some additional etiologies, since multiple nutrient deficiencies are at the origin of the cutaneous manifestations in celiac disease. The following nutritional deficiencies inducing skin rashes, were describe in celiac disease: Zinc, Iron, Vitamin A, E, B12, niacin, folate, selenium and essential fatty acids [39, 40]." If one is being diagnosed incorrectly the other co-morbid conditions can continue to cause Celiac like symptom's. But if the majority of those who have been diagnosed as Celiac could be helped by taking Niacinamide I see no you reason you shouldn't try it. Or at least research it some more. Again good luck on your continued journey. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. Posterboy by the grace of God,

    • Color me confused.  I went to Costco yesterday and there were 2 products there that had GLUTEN FREE plastered on the box but then in the ingredients was a: May contain wheat. How is this possible?  How can they still put gluten-free on the box?  We should be able to trust gluten-free labeling no?? And second question:  How many of you would still buy that item?  I REALLY wanted to buy the Island Way Sorbet for my daughter as it is her FAVE.  But I didn't want to take the risk.  Maybe when she is healthier?  I mean it is SORBET?! LOL So frustrating!
    • JMG I have never laughed so hard! This was the best epic comment I've read! Thankyou so much!  Your all teaching me so much! Love the 'my glass to go' idea!! I will be adopting this... can't believe the mucky glasses we must be drinking from! Shocking!  Im still baffled how so many people don't understand cross contamination i.e. The crumbs on the work surface to cut the lime for your tasty beverage!  Your all amazing Thankyou x
    • Yes!  I never really had GI symptoms, but I did have palpitations and restless leg syndrome from anemia.  These went away within the first month. But myalgia and joint aches aren't better after 1 year.  Waiting to get my antibodies re-tested and see if they're negative.....
