To Souvenir Cup, or Not to Souvenir Cup

170415 Kings Island 2017 Mystic Timbers Souvenir Bottle

There used to be a time where the decision was easy. You simply paid for your drinks individually, which really got expensive fast. Or you purchased a souvenir cup and received free refills on the day of purchase and $1 refills thereafter. However, in 2016, Cedar Fair rolled out an enticing program for those of us who like to pay one and done with the All-Season Souvenir cup.

With the All-Season souvenir cups, you paid for the cup upfront and receive free refills all season, and you could use the cups at all of the Cedar Fair parks. It was a no-brainer, but came with its own set of risks and downfalls.

Once the All-Season souvenir bottles were unlimited for the year, they were easy targets of thieves, as gross as that sounds to drink out of other people’s bottles you do not know. Plus you always had to deal with storing the bottles during rides.

Fast forward to 2017, and Cedar Fair introduced the All-Season Drink Pass, where you get unlimited drinks all season, though in smaller, disposable cups.

So the question became, To Souvenir Cup, or Not to Souvenir Cup?

When the start of the season rolled around, our family had to make a decision, would be go with the All-Season Souvenir bottles or the simpler All-Season Drink Pass? Or do we do one Drink Pass and one Bottle to share among our family?

After discussion, our family elected to go with two All-Season Souvenir bottles, and here is why.

Both programs limit refills to every 15 minutes. The All-Season Drink Pass offers a smaller cup of beverage than that in the souvenir bottles. The All-Season Drink Pass does not include lids or straws with the cups, as opposed to the souvenir bottles that do.

Since we have little kids and share the cups between our family, we have enough choices to make about which beverage to put inside them. The All-Season souvenir bottles were an easy decision for our family because they offer lids and a straw, which minimize the potential for spills.

We also have children young enough that we bring a stroller into the parks; therefore, we have a place to store the cups and typically at least one adult is back with our youngest and the stroller. We just need to be diligent about keeping an eye on the stroller/bringing the cups with us on any family rides.

Now that you know our family’s reasoning for going with the All-Season Souvenir Bottles, which program do you prefer?

Note: The 2017 souvenir bottles are about 4 ounces smaller than those from 2016 and years prior. Current cups hold 24 ounces of beverage as opposed to 28 ounces in years prior.
