If you've never been to Six Flags Great Adventure, you wouldn't know about the 12 food joints a 1/4 of a mile away from the park entreance/exit. My family usaully go out the park to eat. Does it really make a difference in price?

Yeah it definitely can make a difference if your short on dough. (And with the high ticket prices most of us are short on cash)  At SFMM, they charged 8 BUCKS for an McDonalds supposive value meal. THATS AT LEAST A 200% hike compared to regular prices.

I frequently go outside the park for lunch.  Even if I don't save money I get better food and a little bit of a break in the middle of the day.  Of course, there are a few parks like Knobels that have such good food that you wouldn't want to go anywhere else.

When im at any theme park im usually to excited to reolize that my stomach is growling. But when im hungry I bust open a bag of Doritos and spund my lunch money on SlingShot or Dare Devil Dive. Depending on the day and the crowd of course. When there are too many people I eat in the park to save time, cause Burger King outside the park has like a 1 hour wait which I could spend on Medusa's line!

Usually I just "snack inside the park" its cheaper than buying a full meal. Here's a hint. Eat before you go to SFMM. Maybe buy a snack while there. When you leave stop get off the 5 freeway at Lyons. There are lots of restaurants both fast food and sit down that are in the affordable range.

I usually eat at the park(SFOT) that is! I do not get really upset with food prices! If I am short on cash or something I will go down the street to Subway or McD's! The last ime I got upset on the pricing of food or drinks was not at SFOT- it was at the Tim McGraw concert in Dallas in Aug. I got a bottle of Ozarka water and a Coke- it cost me 8.50$ now thats worth bit***** about :(:(!!

Other than price, we often times have a serious issue with selection.  Jill is a vegetarian, and we have trekked all through some parks trying to find lunch (something heartier than nachos or popcorn).  Hot dogs, burgers, chicken - easy to find.  For those of you suffering this same fate, let me share what we've learned...kids' areas often have cheese sandwiches and/or PB&J.  With the increasing number of "non-carnivores", parks should expand their menus, if just a little....
