Season Pass FAQ

There are two options in order to renew your Season Pass for 2013.

Instant Renewal- With this method, your 2012 Season Pass ID card will be activated for the 2013 Season.  You will use the same card for 2013 and will not be required to have your picture taken again in the spring.  Renewals must be same for same, any upgrades or downgrades are not eligible for Instant Renewal.  Instant Renewals done at the park must have Season Pass ID card present at the time of purchase. When purchasing online, you will need to provide your 20 digit barcode from your ID card and your telephone number for identification purposes.

All guests choosing to participate in the Instant Renewal Program MUST retain their 2012 pass to use for the 2013 season.  Same barcode number will be reactivated.  If guest does not have card for 2013 season, $15.00 replacement fee will be charged. If the guest loses their pass after renewing during the 2012 or 2013 season, the $15.00 replacement fee will be charged.  Any cards that are lost, stolen or accidentally disposed of after renewing will need to be replaced.

Guests who no longer have their ID card or wish to get a new picture and ID card can renew by creating a new Season Pass.  All upgrades and downgrades are required to create a new Season Pass.  Examples would include upgrading to a Regular from a Junior pass, downgrading from a Platinum to a Dorney Only pass, etc.  With this method, you will be required to reprocesses, having a new picture taken and a new Season Pass ID card issued for the 2013 season.
Guests can receive a credit towards a 2013 Season Pass with a used admission ticket from that day.  Stop by Guest Services at the Mail Gate for details.  Upgrade must take place on the day of visit to be eligible.

Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom Season Passes are valid at Dorney Park only.  Cedar Fair Platinum Passes are valid at all Cedar Fair amusement parks and outdoor waterparks.  Visit www.cedarfair.com for participating parks.  Both pass types are valid for parking at Dorney Park, but only Cedar Fair Platinum Passes are valid for parking at all Cedar Fair properties.

All online sales are Print-At-Home tickets. Bring your printed e-ticket voucher to the Season Pass Processing Center at the Main Plaza beginning in April 2013 to have your picture taken and receive your Season Pass ID card.  There will be a $5.00 fee per voucher to print or re-print any e-ticket voucher that is not presented at the time of redemption at Dorney Park. Proof of purchase may be required to re-print your vouchers.

Instant Renewal purchases do not have e-tickets or vouchers associated with them as processing is not necessary.  The ID you were issued for the previous season has its validity extended through the next season at the end of the transaction with not additional processing needed.
When your online purchase is complete, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address that was provided when completing the order.  This e-mail will provide the same links to download the vouchers as are given to you on the website at the completion of the order.  Save this e-mail so you are able to re-print your vouchers at any time, from any computer that you can access your e-mail.  Vouchers may be printed multiple times, but the barcode provided on the e-ticket voucher will only be valid for one (1) season pass.
There will be a $5 fee per voucher for a lost, stolen, or forgotten voucher, or to print or re-print any voucher that is not presented at the time of redemption at Dorney Park.  Proof of Purchase may be required to replace a voucher. Dorney Park reserves the right to not replace vouchers without Proof of Purchase. Season Pass vouchers are like cash and should be treated as such until the time of processing.
Your Season Pass ID card is required for park admission.  If a Season Pass ID card is lost, stolen, or forgotten, a regular park admission ticket may be purchased or the ID card can be replaced for a $15 non-refundable replacement fee.  A complimentary ticket is provided to each passholder for one visit per season without paying the replacement fee.  Once this complementary ticket has been used, the pass holder will be required to pay the replacement fee on the next visit that they do not have their Season Pass ID card.  Passes can be replaced at Guest Services.
No, Season Pass ID cards are non-transferable.  Use of a Season Pass is limited to the registered passholder only, identified by the picture and demographic information associated to the pass at the time of processing.  Use of a Season Pass ID card by any other person is strictly prohibited and will result in immediate revocation of the pass without refund.
