For Del's, I'm a provolone and mushrooms kinda girl. Generally I go straight American cheese, no onions, no mushrooms. Just don't freak out if you order American and it's white American. Orange cheese is toxic and weird.

Even better is that the park is not located in Philly.

OK. You guys were supposed to help. Now, I'm mind fffked in a whirlwind of decisions. :lmao:

Boldi, if you were on your deathbed and you only had one day to have your last cheesesteak, which one would it be and what would you get on it? Or, would you at least be satisfied with Delassandros? I kind of want the tourist 'I've been there' experience that I missed out on when we went to Nashville and found out we had to wait 2-3 hours for Hot Chicken. If we go to the Delassandros we may just try to get there 10-15 minutes before opening so we can get a table. We'll grab something with good ratings on yelp before we head to SFGadv.

Also... what's good to eat in the park?

You guys think spending the last few hours on a Saturday night to get a couple rides out of the way and all day on Sunday with Fast Lane Platinum will be enough time at the park? We plan on getting there around 7 on Saturday night, driving from Philadelphia, and I want to knock a few of the rides out. Probably some of the less popular rides that have less lines, so that we can focus on the good stuff on Sunday. I'm no credit whore, but I want to be able to ride everything with multiple re-rides on the good crap. Mainly El Toro and Nitro with a few beers and people watching in between. Include mine train, skull mountain, and the log flume likely in this group. Everything else will likely be 1 and done.

Looking for some pro tips.

I'd go to Johns Roast Pork (we still don't know WHERE in Philly you're going to be which was my whole point of that post - but Johns is much easier to get to than Dalassandros) and I'd get both a steak and a roast pork sandwich. Id get the steak wiz wit, with ketchup (I'm dying in this scenario, right?) salt and pepper. The roast pork with long hots, broccoli rabe and sharp prov. So that's what you should do. Just do that.

Nothing. Its Six Flags. :lol:

Seriously, I enjoy Macho Nacho (there are two - next to Toro and Batman). Its not bad and Ive never gotten sick from it. But its still burritos/taco salads and sh*t from Six Flags. Best of the West is OK but its gets busy. Good outdoor seating and if you sit on the lake you can watch a turtle orgy. Ale House (right near the fountain on Main Street/next to Flash Pass HQ) for beer. They have like pretzels and other munchies too. There's a TON of food places in the boardwalk, but we don't eat there. Sushi from Six Flags? Haha. Otherwise, the Wawa right outside the park is good.

Yeah you should be fine. The park may be crowded Sat night but it'll clear out as it gets later. Sundays have been busy but with platinum FP you'll be fine. I feel like we've gone over this so many times you shouldn't even need protips. But here you go. It's been a while since we've had a good laugh.

If you're going torture yourself on the Mine Train, follow the path a little further back to Bizarro. Your back and neck will appreciate it.
