Where to Find the Best Food at Six Flags
Don't eat just anything in between rides on the roller coasters at Magic Mountain. Let this list guide you to the best food available at Six Flags.
Food at a theme park is usually one of a few things: hamburgers, hot dogs, or chicken tenders. Not many places offer more than the usual fare—except for Six Flags Magic Mountain. Besides offering a lot of familiar chains like Coldstone Creamery and Panda Express, Six Flags Magic Mountain has a few unique options you can't miss out on.
Sashimi it up at Food Etc. Sushi
Not something you would ever imagine in a concrete jungle like a Six Flags amusement park—especially not one that has no kind of theme—but Food Etc. Sushi offers, of course, sushi to its patrons. Made fresh daily, this is one of the only lunch or dinner options at Magic Mountain that can and should be served cold, making it great for a long, hot California day. Sushi is bite-sized and comes with loads of different proteins, making it perfect for both the adventurous eaters and the ones with dietary restrictions. Don't forget the ease with which you can eat it if you forego your chopsticks. Six Flags is no place for being proper, so take a walk past screaming roller coaster riders and treat your sushi like finger food.
Save yourself from your cravings at Teen Titan Tower Pizza
Sometimes the best part about eating at an amusement park is not always the food itself but for the setting you are eating in. Based on the Teen Titans' comics and later television show, Teen Titan Tower Pizza lets you eat in a restaurant modeled after the tower in which all of these young heroes lived. Get their Famous Famiglia pepperoni pizza or a slice of cheese instead. And don't worry about dried-out cheese or chewy crust because all orders are made on the spot, meaning gooey, melty cheese all the way. Add in the salads, cheese bread, and sodas, and you could get every meal there without ever eating the same combination of food twice. You also can't forget the opportunity to pretend you are fueling up before going out to save the world.
Eat vegetarian at Go Fresh Cafe
Much like Food Etc. Sushi, the Go Fresh Cafe is another unusual find for an amusement park. Offering freshly made salads with the brightest spring mix possible, it is the perfect place to go for a lighter pick-me-up before riding a thrill ride. Even better it is the go-to place for vegetarians and vegans. While other restaurants make an effort to offer options for all dietary needs, this is the one place that caters solely to non-meat eaters. Here you have your veggie burgers, meatless chicken strips, and flatbreads. No longer are vegetarians relegated to only salads and cheese pizza in the sea of fried food that is an amusement park. And don't worry, you do have the option to add lean meats like turkey to salads and flatbreads, so your carnivorous friends have no excuse for not joining you here.
Get the most delicious standard fare at Katy's Kettle
With all this talk about typical amusement park food, it is important to let you know where to find the best of it at Six Flags Magic Mountain. At Katy's Kettle, you can find everything you would expect: burgers, turkey legs, and chicken sandwiches. The only surprising option here is the stuffed baked potato, one that is in high demand. The main complaint about Katy's Kettle is the wait time. Much like at a food truck festival with only one burger truck among other international and experimental cuisine, Katy's Kettle tends to have some of the longest wait times. Because they make everything to order like the other Six Flags Magic Mountain restaurants, sometimes you will get stuck waiting for food to get re-made. But if you find a fresh and juicy turkey leg or a steaming hot baked potato worth the wait, this is the perfect place for you.
Snack between meals at Cyber Cafe
What is more important than getting a well-rounded meal at Six Flags? Getting a snack you can't get outside of the park gates. Of course that means getting Dippin' Dots at least once before going home for the night. Cyber Cafe offers those as well as other sweet desserts—some even gluten-free for those with digestive issues. Even better they act as Magic Mountain's resident coffee house. If you forgot to get your caffeine fix before coming to the park, stop by Cyber Cafe for your morning joe. This is one of the few places that offers pre-packaged sandwiches and salads. That might sound like a negative, but if you are willing to sacrifice freshness and customization for less time waiting in line, grabbing a quick lunch at Cyber Cafe might be your best option.
Also they have Slurpees for when your two p.m. heatstroke starts setting in. That does not hurt either.
