Allergy Friendly Dining at Silverwood

August 8, 2019.Cheree Sauer.4 Likes.39 Comments

If you or anyone in your family has food allergies you know the struggle of finding places that are accommodating (especially for those picky eaters). Food allergies are bound to make vacation planning more difficult and have the potential to make or break an entire trip! 

My family is currently dealing with a long list of allergies, each of us with different restrictions. We made it our mission to make eating at Silverwood an enjoyable, stress-free experience for ourselves and others with food allergies.

The good news is that Silverwood has a ton of gluten and dairy-free options throughout the park, but I found that they have options for the most common food allergies. Who knew! From my many experiences I’ve found that  Lindy’s is the best option if you or a family member are dealing with multiple food allergies.

Lindy’s offers gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, nut-free, nightshade-free, corn-free and egg-free options. The menu will only show you the gluten-free options but you can ask your server for the ingredient list book. It lists every ingredient for every single item on the menu and it was super handy for my family.


Also, Lindy’s is not your typical fair food. Hands down, they make one of the best, juiciest, handcrafted burgers around, along with many other delicious dishes. You can choose a gluten-free bun or opt for a lettuce wrap to make it completely allergy-free.


The Theater of Illusion has GF pizza crust available at no extra charge! This makes for a super yummy dinner as you are mystified by the magic show.

    This allergy list is wrong. There are no SF snow cones or slushies. I got my kid excited and had to disappoint him big time.
