Everything to Know About Cedar Point Surf Lounge Refillable Souvenir Cup

170621 Cedar Point Surf Lounge Refillable Cup (1)

New for June 2017, the Surf Lounge inside of Cedar Point’s Hotel Breakers is offering a refill souvenir bottle, but not the kind you would expect.

The new Tervis style cups (it is not a Tervis brand cup) features the Surf Lounge logo and for $24.95 includes any of the specialty cocktails from the bar. Thereafter, all specialty cocktail refills are $10 for the remainder of the season.

The cup is almost the same size as the yearly Cedar Fair souvenir bottles, though way more sturdy, with a lid and straw, and dishwasher safe!

The Surf Lounge cup comes with some rules though.

1) You can only fill it currently at the Surf Lounge. They are not valid currently for refills in Cedar Point or Cedar Point Shores.

2) The only beverages that can be used for a refill in the cup are specialty cocktails as follows:

Roarin’ Riptide Punch (Vodka, Malibu, Curacao, Lemonade, Sprite, Mint)
Mai Tai (White and Dark Rum, Cointreau, Lime Juice, Orange Juice, Grenadine)
Long Island Iced Tea (Vodka, Rum, Gin, Triple Sec)
Margarita (Tequila, Triple Sec, Lime Juice)
Tropical Lake Erie (Vodka, Peach Schnapps, Coconut Rum, Cranberry and Pineapple Juice)
Breakers Breeze (Grand Marnier, Vodka, Ginger Beer, Mint, Lime, Orange, and Sprite)

3) You can not get beer or wine in the cups (Though you are free to purchase a standalone beer or wine and pour them into the cup).

4) You can only drink the beverage in the cup while inside Hotel Breakers, at the Beach or on the boardwalk. They can not be taken filled into the park.

5) Regular specialty cocktails cost in the range of $11-12 each, so you get a slight savings by purchasing the refillable cup.

This is the first of its kind that we have seen refillable souvenir cups for alcoholic beverages at Cedar Fair amusement parks. The cup is really nice and decent souvenir for those that like to collect that sort of thing. While any alcoholic beverages come at a premium, this gives guests that like to enjoy the beach a chance to enjoy their cocktails with their feet in the sand.

Review: Canada’s Wonderland Fish and Chips

150717 Canada's Wonderland Fish and Chips

A recent trip to Canada’s Wonderland gave us the opportunity to try out the fish and chips from Coaster’s Drive-In. The hand-battered fish and chips meal come with choice of one or two pieces of fish, fries, and coleslaw. Guests with the Canada’s Wonderland meal plans will be happy to learn they are included on all of the plans.

We have always been extremely impressed with the fresh perch sandwich coming out of Cedar Point, so we were excited to try this different fish option at Canada’s Wonderland.

We had no idea what to expect when ordering the meal from Coasters Drive-In, but were blown away on so many levels!

First, the upgraded meal comes with two (2) giant pieces of freshly hand-battered fish. They were layered on a pile of French fries, and while not the fresh cut variety, they were way better than those served at sister parks! The meal was also served with a lemon wedge, tartar sauce, and a fresh coleslaw.

Coleslaw can often be our demise when places go with a cheap, sloppy version. However, the Canada’s Wonderland version was fresh and excellently prepared.

If it were not for the Southwest Burger, which we also tried at Canada’s Wonderland, this was likely one of the best meals we had on the park! Hands up to Canada’s Wonderland, as the fish and chips provide not only for an excellent meal, but great option for those with the meal plans!
