The area by the park doesn't have much. I usually eat in Hamilton (20 min away) after I leave.

I think there's a gyro place by El Toro that looked to have some healthier options. No clue how good they are though.

There was nothing edible at all in the park when I visited a couple of years ago, and the area seemed to be predominantly fast food / gas station food. I'd plan alternatives well in advance if possible.

^How dare you call Wawa GAS STATION FOOD!!!!!!! :lmao:

I believe there are wraps available at some places. Don't quote me on that 100% but I feel like I've seen them at Granny's at least.

Yeah, your best bet is Wawa because everything else is crappy fast food and a weird pizza place. That said, all of those places will be packed after the park closes so if there's something closer to wherever you're staying that would be a better bet. I like Wawa, it's not the greatest thing out there but it's the best option by the park by default.

PS: If you do go to Wawa it's on the left but you have to turn right to get there because Jersey. If after going right to go left you’d like to complete your cultural Jersey experience at Wawa you’re also welcome to pull up to a gas pump and have someone pump your gas for you.

I was at the park today and it was dead :). I got lots of rides in - 37 without a flash pass. Had to leave early because of the storm moving in. I could've had a lot more.

Wonder Woman is still fenced in, and there was no activity at all by it today. It looks almost complete. I was hoping to ride "her" when I was there :lol:. It looks like Crazanity at Magic Mountain in LA. I enjoy that ride a lot -- lots of airtime. Is there a reasonable guess for the opening? I'll be back in September for "Riding of the Bull." I'm hoping she's up then.
Coasternut,

If you’re really looking for a place for beers and good food, you could always give the Plumsted Grill a try. It’s a little under ten minutes from the park in the opposite direction from 195 (back where 537 turns into a two-lane road). Food and drinks are good and reasonably priced. That said, there isn’t anything else around it, so it’ll also depend on where you guys ended up choosing to stay. If you’re closer to Hamilton or Freehold, it’s better to try and find something more closer to there.

Just don’t go to Tommy’s next to the KFC, no matter how desperate you are for a drink. It sucks. Hard.

I was just wondering, when is SF going to put the new restraints on Kingda Ka like what Maverick and Intim305 has?

Never. Sit in the front row and you’ll be fine.

90% of the responses you’re going to get will be more made up than this statistic.

Except Bill’s.

And if you don't have time/don't feel like waiting for the front. Honestly, as long as you sit in any of the front rows of a car, its considerably smoother than in the the backs of one.

...But as for the question above. Yea, probably not gonna happen. Those restraints have been available for nearly a decade already, so if SIX haven't bothered to put in them yet, I don't see them installing now or anytime in the future.
