Hi all,<br><br><br><br>
Sorry this is so last minute but we changed our plans just this evening and instead of going to a different family outing, now we're going to Six Flags amusement park. So... I have to revamp my eating plans.<br><br><br><br>
Does anyone know if there is anything at all I might be able to eat at Six Flags w/o getting sick? Oh, just as a reminder, I'm vegan.<br><br><br><br>
Or should I just find a way to sneak in as much food as possible? LOL... should be interesting as I was told they do some bag searches. Hmmm...<br><br><br><br>
What do you suggest?<br><br><br><br>
TIA!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Some places have sit-down restaurants where you can get spaghetti. I go assuming I'm going to eat junk all day - soft pretzel, french fries, etc. Even if you grab something before you go in and after you leave that should be enough to get you through the day. Or take some fruit and things to leave in the car just in case.

Wasn't there just a thread asking the same question a couple days ago??<br><br>
Or maybe I'm thinking of the Disney world thread...

Yes, there was one for Disney world and one for Disney Land... but this is quite different.<br><br><br><br>
Well, I did look up the park to see if they had any info... some. No places serving spaghetti, it looks like, but I might have a chance at a mexican place or there is a "Panda Express" ... I've never eaten at the latter... wonder if they might have something?

Good luck. Panda Express uses a chicken base in pretty much everything; their <a href="http://www.pandaexpress.com/foodMenu/PXNutrition.pdf" target="_blank">nutrition guide</a> explicitly states that "we do not offer vegetarian meals". I suppose the steamed rice is vegan though.<br><br><br><br>
The last time I was there, I brought in my own food, so no worries. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Panda express doesn;t have anything. They cook everything in chicken broth. Even their rice and veggies. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br><br><br>
You could try the mexican place. And you can see if they have some pizza. If you don't mind picking off the cheese, that could work.<br><br><br><br>
I always thought you could bring your own picnic food if you wanted? They won't let you bring lunch?(you should porbably ask them if it doesn't say on their site)<br><br><br><br>
If you eat a big breakfast and then get maybe just som french fries or something at the mexican place you should be ok. My guess is though as far as i know everything is premade so it's hard to make a special order. But you can always try.

Just pack food. I used to do that all the time when I went to Six Flags a long time ago. So you don't have to carry a ton of food around, eat something in the parking lot before you go in and then carry the rest around for later. Or get you hand stamped if you want to leave your stuff in the car.

I also suggest sneaking in food. I will probably do that when I go to King's Dominion in August. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sneaky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":shifty:">

Yeah, it's probably safest and easiest to just sneak in food. A piece of fruit, some nuts, and a sandwich would fit in a purse or handbag. When I go on vacation in August this is probably what I will do in most of the places we go. Enjoy your trip!

The six flags here is pretty lenient about people "sneaking food" if it isn't anything perishable. My class went on a field trip there and I was able to sneak in an apple and Luna bar. At the park where I work security usually does just a quick scan through your bag so it's quite simple to wrap a bar or sandwich in a t-shirt or something and stick it at the bottom of your bag.

And bring water. I nearly got dehydrated when I was there last week. With water bein 3 bucks a bottle there, it's something to remember!

Definitely bring your own food. Amusement park french fries probably aren't fried in lard but I would bet a pretty penny that they are fried in hydrogenated oil, which may not kill animals but will eventually kill you.

Hi all,<br><br><br><br>
They do a bag check at the front but I was able to sneak in some snack bars to tie me over until I could find something that would be passable. After scan of various places, the only thing I could eat was at the Mexican place... I ordered the taco salad with all the veggies their small selection had and skipping that shell which I'm sure isn't vegan. It was good enough for a little while.<br><br><br><br>
Next time, I'll carb up the night before (I should have done that but didn't - makes a big difference!) and sneak more stuff in. ETA: Actually, we might go to Six Flags White Water park next week. So, I'll know what to do for there... plus, the parking lot isn't a freakin HIKE away... so it will be easier to eat in the truck and come back to the park for more fun.<br><br><br><br>
Thanks for all the tips! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
And yeah...$3 for water is outrageous!!!

Well, If you're vegan - mexican. (If you do the taco salad like I did, don't eat the shell, though, as I'm pretty sure it has milk and/or egg in it. It's not corn tortilla but more like a fried flour tortilla thingy.) You write on the sheet what you want. So, I wrote in large CAPS "NO CHEESE" and "NO MEAT" and then proceeded to check off all the veggie items on there. It was good and satisfying enough to help me through one meal. But do pack a snack/dessert for an added sugar boost to give you energy. And carb up thursday night!!! (wish I had done that)<br><br><br><br>
If you're a lacto-veg, plain pizza is an option. Otherwise, skip the pizza b/c your only two options are cheese and cheese w/pepperoni. bleah. If they had had more, I would have done a veggie pizza with no cheese as the majority of pizza doughs are vegan. (It's Papa John's Pizza down there.)<br><br><br><br>
Oh... and the PRICE of the food is outrageous. Truly. My DH and I and my son ate and it costs us just over $50 bucks for food and drinks while we were there... for drive-through quality food. (And that wasn't even in amounts to really fill us. We got by on "just enough".)<br><br><br><br>
Sheesh, for $50+ you could have a nice dinner somewhere.<br><br><br><br>
Next time, I'd be more inclined to prepare better and pack something... then get our hands stamped, walk out, eat and come back in. (The trolley cars stop in 3 places in the parking lot. So, you don't have to walk too terribly far.)<br><br><br><br>
Good luck!!

Six Flags really is outrageous compared to the better parks like Cedar Point.<br><br><br><br>
Even with the $20 off coupon for Six Flags, it's still cheaper to go to Cedar Point. And there are least a few vegan options at Cedar Point, including Johnny Rockets boca burger. And free water at any stand.

I went to 6 Flags Over GA earlier this mo. At the pizza place near the entrance they have cheesesticks that are, according to my friend, better than the actual pizza. I really didn't eat that much there. There's always ice cream. Or maybe they have something at that one Plantation restaurant. I personally have other issues wiith eating there...but there might be veggies!
