Yes, there is a very basic falafel place called "The World of Falafel" that just opened in Newtown about 10 min away. It is under the supervision of the local Chabad and is open from 10 am to 10 pm.

There is also a Rita's water ice down the block from the Falafel place but not sure if thats under any supervision

Is there a reason that people make this into a weekend trip as opposed to a day trip? A whole weekend squished in a room with my kids and 2-3 full days at the park just don't seem that appealing to me.

people do more than a day trip because the tickets are good for 2 days

I checked on the website and I don't think they are under Chabad. It is under Mekor Baruch Orthodox Kosher Supervision. However, Chabad has a letter saying that as long as that letter is there, then kashrus standards are fine.

If you get a group together with 15 or more people tickets are 32$ per person, technically as long as you have more than 9 ppl it is worth it to get the group rate of 15 tickets.

Correct but not everyone may go by the original hechsher which is why I  included that chabad said it's ok as long as their letter is current. But chabad is not the hechsher.

Has anyone tried to get kosher food from a meal certifacate? AAA offers a combo ticket with a meal certificate. Also what is the best discount on tickets now?

Thanks!

are there any current promos for Seasme Place tickets? Or any way to buy from Dan's members?
I remember when a coke was a nickel, and you could buy VRs in OD.
