  1. More details on the food festival that starts tomorrow have been released on their website. Taste of Six Flags Food Festival May 8-9; 15-16; 22-23 Rides, Tastes, and Brews! Spring is in the air and the thrills are back in action! All that screaming on the roller coasters is going to work up an appetite. The new Taste of Six Flags Food Festival will bring the best bites from around the Six Flags family of parks right to you in Hometown Square. With treats for all ages, this is an event you won’t want to miss! The Taste of Six Flags Food Festival will occur the following operating weekends in May: Saturday, May 8 & Sunday, May 9 Saturday, May 15 & Sunday, May 16 Saturday, May 22 & Sunday, May 23 Scheduled event hours of operation are Saturdays 12pm – 8pm and Sundays 12pm – 7pm. To experience the Taste of Six Flags Food Festival, you will need a reservation and valid form of admission to the theme park – just like any other day you plan to make a visit. This can be with your Six Flags Membership, Season Pass, or one-day admission ticket. Once inside the park, the specialty food and beverage items will require an additional fee. Punch cards featuring 12 credits will be available for purchase at Sidetrack Soda for $29.99. All-Season Dining Pass Holders receive 3 bonus credits with a punch card purchase! Punch card credits can only be used to purchase items at Taste of Six Flags booths and cannot be redeemed at locations outside of the Taste of Six Flags special event.

Anyone have experience claiming their gift cards from their unused membership months?
  2. That's disappointing to hear that you had a terrible experience with food service. I'm hoping they have it ironed out in two weeks. Congrats on getting to ride Maxx Force! I've only taken one lap...after two breakdowns while waiting.
  3. Well Illinois is also testing near 80,000 people a day. By comparison we didn't test 40,000 a day until August 5th. But I digress. I completely agree that SFGAm could have opened last summer. We visited King's Island in July of last year and felt completely safe with the protocols in place and reduced capacity. What I fail to understand is how Six Flags was allowed to open Hurricane Harbor but not the theme park. Why were indoor entertainment venues open at a reduced capacity when an outdoor entertainment facility couldn't?
  4. I think it's a bit more complicated than that. I do believe that the park management wanted to open the park last year but weren't able to because they didn't get approval from the state. The positivity rates, daily cases, and deaths are now significantly lower than they were last summer. In addition about 25% of the state is fully vaccinated at this point. Dining is open throughout the state. I don't see a reason SFGAm shouldn't open (with limited capacity) and be able to serve food at outdoor kiosks.
  5. Oh I am going in with very low expectations. At $2 a punch it can't be that good. We have a gift card coming to us for the months we paid for the membership but couldn't use it. Considering we weren't likely to buy anything in the park anyway this seems like a good use of sunken cash. I was able to find a food fest that Darien Lake held in 2019 (I think). https://www.sixflags.com/darienlake/newsroom/all-american-food-fest The pricing structure looks similar so I wouldn't expect the event to be all that different. Here was the food lineup for that event. Specialty Craft Food Items: • Pulled Pork Mac N Cheese Twister Fries/Sandwich/Nachos • Gourmet Tater Tots • Red, White & Blue Funnel Cake/Churros • Roasted Corn on the Cob – Siracha & Beer Butter/Bacon & Basil • Chicken & Waffle Sandwich • Turkey Burger Sliders • Buffalo Chicken Pizza • Mango Soft Serve • Sparkling Ice Cream Sandwich • Confetti Cotton Candy There isn't anything there that is a standout but I'll give it a whirl since we were already planning on being in the park that day.
  6. We're heading to Great America (our home park) on May 8th. Apparently there is a Taste of Six Flags event scheduled to begin that day. Bonus? This is what is posted on their website: Taste of Six Flags Food Festival May 8-9; 15-16; 22-23 Rides, Tastes, and Brews! Spring is in the air and the thrills are back in action!

Menus? We enjoyed our first food and wine festival at Busch Gardens and loved every minute of it. I know this will be a much more mellow affair. I'm really curious about what they mean by the "best bites from around the Six Flags family of parks". Are there Six Flags parks that are known for their food?
  7. We had a similar experience. My wife and I did wait in line for Invadr (40 minute wait) since we missed it the day before. It took us 6 hours to work through our 30 punches. Fortunately, everything was really good!
  8. My family is going to be there on April 1st and 2nd. We will be in the Williamsburg area this Sunday through next Saturday. Does anyone have recommendations on local restaurants? We are into seafood, American, Mexican, and Italian food. Thanks!
  9. No worries! Does anyone have details on the Food and Wine festival that starts on April 2nd? We will be in Williamsburg from March 29th through April 2nd with one day planned for Busch Gardens and the rest for sightseeing. I’m trying to figure out if it would be better to schedule our BGW day during the week or hold out until April 2nd.
  10. Which literally ends on March 28th. We are going AFTER March 28th.
  11. As of tomorrow they can operate at 50% capacity. We are heading to BGW just after March 28th. With it being spring break week I’m curious if they will have an expanded offering of rides.
