Cedar Po!nt Souvineer Drinking Mugs...

Wednesday, May 19, 2004 1:53 PM
Last year in 2003, Cedar Po!nt had this deal where for $10.00, you got a red souvineer Dragster mug (which held a LOT) filled with some pop (soda/softdrink). The price was a little steep, until I found out you can have it re-filled at any food stand free of charge, no questions asked!

My question. For all those who have been to The Po!nt this year... does Cedar Po!nt offer anything similar for the 2004 year? Do they have different or the same Dragster mugs, or was this just a 1-year thing?

It was a great deal, and I'm planning a couple trips this year, so I just wanted to know so I can get the mug early & get it filled often.

Evidently not the same deal. Here are the details.

$2 refills? Ouch.

I'm not a complainer when it comes to park prices (food, games, upcharge rides, whatever), in fact, you'll never find a single post anywhere with me complaining about park prices. It's usually quite the opposite with me defending park pricing structures.

However...

this is ridiculous! $10 for a cup then $2 a refill. Screw it. I don't honestly want the cup anyway.

(My 2003 Dragster cups were neon green and blue)

The only upside to the big obnoxious Dragster cups was that it felt like I was carrying a bong around the park - which somehow felt taboo :)

Me, I like ice water. It's oh-so-refreshing, very hydrating, and the price is definitely right. I do buy the occaisonal vanilla pepsi at the much-reviled Johnny Rockets---my wife's favorite in-park restaurant.

KBF's souvineer drinking mug deal is probably the biggest rip off. A mug is about $6 and then refills are the same price as a regular soda (approximately $3). I like the Six Flags souvineer cup deals they have; $6 for a cup, $1 per refill.

Well there are two logical approaches to this:

1. Charge big for the cup and make refills free (or very cheap)

2. Charge resonable for the cup and make the refills a slightly reduced price.

The point is that in the end the souvenir cup should feel like a deal, saving you some money over the course of your stay and giving you a souvenir.

CP seems to be using the logic that the crappy plastic cup is the purchase, not the drinks. If some parks can give out free drinks to guests, then why can't CP stick with a "value" price plan on the souvenir cups.

Bah humbug! :(

I prefer not carrying around a mug wherever I go, I try to stay empty handed, so I would never use that Cedar Poinr deal anyway, but it is truly a ripoff now, unless you rely on 10 gallons of pop per day to stay refreshed. A couple 3 dollar pops out of the machine wil ldo for me for a day.

I like the little cups you get at Holiday World because they are free and refills are free!
