I attempted to do a search before posting this but it doesn't seem to be working right now. We have been to Six Flags over TX about 3 times now and no where have I seen any signs or information warning (not even on the menu sign) so this may be new. Several of their eateries/restaurants use peanut oil to cook their FF in.

We went to the Six Flags in Illinois, when we were there visiting relatives in Sept. We had DD's food (had just been diagnosed about 4 weeks earlier)- but when to guest relations area to talk to them and see if they had a list/or could tell us safe/vs non-safe foods. They said they didn't have any of that information we would just have to ask/check ingredients at each place. We were glad we had DD's food- I didn't find them at the time to be very allergy aware or have any special information for food allergic guests- but we had fun and no problems bringing a small cooler for safe food, when we explained why.

Yes--the park in Arlington, TX definitely uses peanut oil to fry a lot of things.
We haven't been since we moved to Houston but used to keep a season pass. DS was able to eat safely in the eating area across from the kids Looney Toons area. He typically got pizza.
At different times we've been able to do different things. One summer they had fresh tropical fruit in the Old Texas part. They cut up a mango and papaya and other goodies right there. And across from the cave they sold shiskabobs (sp--it's early) that were really plain.
I am not big on hauling a lot of stuff to an amusement park. I can't stand it in fact. I have a fanny pack, and that's it. If we were still hungry upon leaving, there were a whole hoard of restaurants outside the park.
One year we did have to go to the medical station for benadryl. He developed a rash on his leg that we noticed as soon as we entered the park and went straight there. (I typically carry it--don't know why I didn't have some then).
I miss Six Flags. We had Astroworld for a while, but it was awful--dirty and not kept up. Six Flags announced this week that they're selling Splash Town, a water park that DS has enjoyed going to. So it looks like we'll have more incentive to come back "home." It's the amusement park I went to every summer as a kid--I love it so.
