I know people will say to stay with choice but based on the reviews the choice hotels don’t look good. Econo Lodge is usually my go to but the one closest to the park sounds disgusting. Is this one of the times I’m just going to have to fork over a little more cash? Where have you stayed when visiting this park?

Hi we have stayed at the Best Western in Bordentown many times. We usually can get in there for under $100.00. It has a decent breakfast and pool. The rooms were remodeled two years ago.

^ We did the food truck event last year (or maybe the year before?). I don't recall anything special alcoholic drink-wise -- I think that's new this year? Unless it was a small beer tent --- i'm a cider and cocktail guy -- but there was a decent variety of food options and everything I ate was pretty good, though a bit pricey for the portions. My fiancee swears by and still talks about the GUAC SPOT truck, lol. Her favorite guacamole, and she loved the candied apple pork tacos. Mmmm.

Not bad for a Six Flags function, but don't go in expecting Brew & BBQ :-P

Seriously though, I love when parks do stuff like this. It's always a good time.

So I'm scheming to go to the park (like 98% to take my sister on Kingda Ka; it's closer than Dragster), and I was thinking opening weekend as a surprise, but I was wondering what the crowds would be like and if everything would be open and running. Any insight would be much appreciated! Thanks!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Let's see...given that I would have to try the weird sh%t that I wouldn't be able to get anywhere around here, I would go with:

* An Aussie meat pie
* Meat and cheese rice ball
* Anything from the Korean Fusion truck
* The mac and cheese cone? :lover:
* Anything with guac, although Avocado Ice Cream? That just sounds all sorts of wrong, but I would still try it!

Can't wait to see the beer offerings!

^ Knew that was coming as soon as I saw "Belgian waffles" without Waffle de Lys being mentioned. Seriously WTF guys? I see some returning names but their omission is a crime.
That coaster dad [316] and that coaster kiddo [175]. Road trip buddies for life.
Dad's faves: Fury 325. Phantom's Revenge. Intimidator 305. El Toro. Skyrush.

Kiddo's faves: Banshee. Top Thrill Dragster. Valravn. Apollo's Chariot. Twisted Timbers.

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.
