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.

    • Sure, you should consider getting tested for celiac disease.  There is no test for Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance or Sensivity.  However, you have to be consuming gluten daily for at least 12 weeks as ALL celiac tests require you to be consuming gluten.   Learn more about testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/
    • Welcome Isabel!   It is hard having celiac disease, but after a while it does get easier.  Just so you know, I am an adult, but I am a Girl Scout Leader, have a daughter who is 16 and one of my daughter’s friends was just diagnosed with celiac disease just three weeks ago!   Social events can be hard, but you can bring some food that is actually better than just snacks.  If I am going to a friends house, I can bring food and reheat it in the microwave.  I also have a good thermos that I can fill with Spaghetti, chili or soup.  I also bring ice cream and keep it in the freezer.  One of our troop members is really allergic  to nuts and milk, yet all her friends (true friends) accommodate her.  For example, I make some pretty good gluten free, dairy free, and nut free brownies for her.  At our troop meetings or camping, we never bring nuts.  She is never left out.  Now, we are working with our Newbie celiac friend.   My daughter and I took her a care package, so that she can start baking gluten-free chocolate chip cookies.   Short!  That is me.  Not everyone with celiac disease is short.  You may find that you end up growing more, but remember, genetics plays into it too.  My brother grew after high school!   I think that you probably see your doctor often, because they want to insure that you are following the gluten free diet.  Consider yourself lucky because some people do not have access to medical care.  They must manage this all on their own.   Take care and be safe!  Do not give out too much private information (did I say I was a Mom?”)  be patient and some other teens should show up in the other sections, but you can always ask anyone here a question.   P.S. Check out celiac summer camps.  Google it.  Imagine a ton of kids just like you!    I wanna go!    
    • I have two suggestions. First try switching to mostly natural gluten free foods. It makes the diet much easier. Second, i know you said you know the consequences, but really think deeply. in some ways, gluten is poison to your intestines. it literally eats away at it! so next time you think about eating gluten, think what you are really putting your body.
    • I’m in middle school and here is my story of celiacs. i was short all my life and had mild stomach aches. Finally, about a year and a half ago, my doctors realized it was celiacs. The blood tests came back positive for it, so i got the endoscopy. sure enough, i had celiacs. it is so hard for me for many reasons. 1. at social events it is so awful to not be able to eat anything except snacks from home. 2. I am still very short and it’s embarrassing! 3. i have to go to the doctor every 3 months for lots of blood work. Is every celiac’s life like this or just mine? Can anyone help me cope with celiacs?
    • Hey I’m around the same age! I get it and feel the same way. I was diagnosed only over a year ago and my celiacs very hard to deal with at social events. But what ever you do, don’t cheat the diet! The consequences will come back. I’m here to chat if anyone needs support
