Souvenir Bottle and Season Pass Drink Plan Frequently Asked Questions

The All Season Souvenir Bottle and Season Pass Drink Plan are two separate programs. You will not be able to use your Season Pass card if you forget your bottle.

Yes, you will be given the option at the park to redeem your voucher for an All Season Souvenir Bottle or the new Season Pass Drink Plan which can be added onto your Season Pass card.

You can purchase an All Season Souvenir Bottle or the Season Pass Drink Plan online or at the park.

Visit Guest Services at the park, and for a $2.99 exchange fee, you can be switched over to the bottle free program. The barcode on your bottle will be deactivated, and you can start to use your Season Pass immediately for your refills.

You may refill as often as you like with a time window of 15 minutes between refills.

Yes, if you would like to refill the same disposable paper cup after the 15 minute waiting period, bring it back to a beverage location and an associate can help you.

Visit Guest Services at the park and for a $2.99 replacement charge your bottle can be replaced. The barcode on the lost/stolen bottle will be deactivated so that it can no longer be used, and you can start to use your new bottle immediately. Deactivation and replacement can only be done if the All Season Souvenir Bottle has been added to a valid Season Pass, and can only be requested by the pass holder. Souvenir bottles not associated to a Season Pass cannot be deactivated and replaced.

If you lose your Season Pass, Guest Services can help you replace it (for a nominal fee) and activate the Season Pass Drink Plan on your new pass.

If you forget your Season Pass, please stop at any ticket window located at the Front Gate. With proper identification a temporary pass will be issued to you. The temporary pass is only valid for that day and will have the Season Pass Drink Plan attached.

The Season Pass Drink Plan can be added to all Season Pass types, except Halloween Haunt passes (where offered).

Season Pass Drink Plan added to a Season Pass is only valid for redemption exclusively by the registered passholder. Once Season Pass Drink Plan is linked to a Season Pass, it is non-transferable. In order for benefits to be redeemed, the Season Pass must be used for admission on the same date. 

Yes, present your All Season Souvenir Bottle or your Season Pass if you have the Season Pass Drink Plan at any Cedar Fair park to enjoy the same refill benefits. All Season Dining and Souvenir Bottle programs are NOT valid at Gilroy Gardens.

You can use these on any public operating day, and the programs are valid for the regular season, as well as Halloween events and WinterFest (where offered).

Season Pass Locker Rental Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, because the system checks the barcode of your Pass when you redeem, this program is only available to Season Pass Holders.

Unfortunately, there are no Platinum options for this program. The Season Pass Locker Rentals will only be available at California's Great America at this time.

Lockers are assigned randomly on a first come, first served basis by the kiosk, so you will have a different locker each time you redeem your rental.

While sellouts are rare, they occasionally occur on high volume dates. The program does not guarantee that a Standard locker will be available for you at all times of day in your preferred locker location. If you are visiting on a busy day, please plan to arrive early and redeem your rental soon after you arrive.  

When you scan your Season Pass at the locker kiosk, you will create a 4-digit PIN that will open your locker. Do not share your PIN with anyone outside your party. You will be asked to create a PIN each time you redeem your rental.

Due to limited capacity, discounts are not available on Large and Jumbo lockers.

Please empty your locker prior to leaving the park. All lockers reset overnight and will be issued to a different guest the following operating day. Items left in the locker overnight will be removed and taken to Lost and Found.

If you need to retrieve items from your locker after waterpark closing, please see South Bay Shores’s gate attendant. If you choose to redeem a South Bay Shores locker, you may not redeem a California’s Great America locker on the same day.

Yes, subject to availability.

Your Season Pass Locker Rental is only good once per day, per park, so you will be able to move your locker one time from a South Bay Shores location to a California's Great America location.
