Souvenir Bottle and Season Pass Drink Plan Frequently Asked Questions

Skip to Next Section

If I forget my All Season Souvenir Bottle, can I use my Season Pass card to get beverages for the day?

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.

I purchased an All Season Souvenir Bottle online but have not yet redeemed my voucher for the bottle. Can I switch to the Season Pass Drink Plan?

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.

I already have my Season Pass and would like to add the drink program, where can I purchase it?

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

I tried the All Season Souvenir Bottle, but would prefer to use the Season Pass Drink Plan instead. Am I able to switch?

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.

How many refills can I get each day with a Souvenir Bottle or Season Pass Drink Plan?

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

May I refill my Season Pass Drink Plan cup or do I need to receive a new paper cup with each refill?

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.

What happens if my All Season Souvenir Bottle is lost or stolen? Can it be replaced?

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 I lose/forget my Season Pass, can I still use my Season Pass Drink Plan?

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.

Can I add the Season Pass Drink Plan to any pass type?

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. 

Will my Season Pass Drink Plan or All Season Souvenir Bottle work at all Cedar Fair parks?

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.

Can I use my Souvenir Bottle or Season Pass Drink Plan every time I visit?

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

Skip to Next Section

Do I need a Season Pass to purchase the Season Pass Locker Rental Program?

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

I have a Platinum Pass. Can I use this at other Cedar Fair parks? 

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.

Will I get the same locker each visit? 

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.

Does this guarantee a locker for me?

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.  

Do I have to carry a key? 

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.

I have a lot of stuff. Can I get a discount on a larger locker? 

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

Can I leave items in my locker overnight? 

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.

Can I redeem a locker in Boomerang Bay waterpark in the day, exit back into Great America, and access my locker after the waterpark closes?

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

Can I get a locker during HAUNT or Winterfest? 

Yes, subject to availability.

Can I move my locker from one rental location to another in the same day? 

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 Boomerang Bay location to a California's Great America location.
