What is Buy Now|Pay Later (BNPL)?
BNPL stands for “Buy Now, Pay Later.” BNPL is a promotion that allows you to purchase as many Season Passes as you would like, without owing anything until February 1, 2017! On this date the credit card you entered into the system at purchase will be charged in full. Up until that point, you may pay in full at any time by visiting: darienlake.com/payments. Please note, the BNPL program will be offered for 2017 Season Passes through January 2, 2017. We will offer the PlayAway payment plan from January 3rd – March 5th (see below.)
What is PlayAway?
PlayAway is a promotion that allows you to layaway your Season Passes, and pay in three equal, monthly installments. Each month, your credit card entered at purchase will be charged $23.33 per pass ordered. This program is active January 3rd through March 5, 2017. All purchases must be paid in full by May 1, 2017.
Will my Season Pass be good for admission to SplashTown at Darien Lake?
Yes, all 2017 tickets, Season Passes, and accommodations stays include admission to both the theme and water park.
Can my Season Passes be used at Six Flags Theme Parks? Is my Six Flags Season Pass valid at Darien Lake?
No. Passes may not be used at Six Flags Theme Parks, nor does Darien Lake accept Six Flags Season Passes for Park Admission.
Can my Season Passes be used at Premier Parks, LLC properties?
Yes, you may use your 2017 Darien Lake Season Pass at the following Premier Parks properties: Clementon Amusement Park (NJ), Nashville Shores (TN), Frontier City (OK), Rapids Water Park (FL), Wet & Wild Hawaii (HI), Wet & Wild Palm Springs (CA), Wet & Wild Phoenix (AZ), Wet & Wild Splashtown (TX), and White Water Bay (OK).

I am divorced and want duplicate Season Passes for my children - one set for me, and one set for my ex. Can I do this?
Unfortunately, due to processing difficulties, duplicate passes cannot be produced, as the system would void out the first set. Guests are encouraged to share or purchase a second set of passes to alleviate ownership issues. Darien Lake will grant admission to all valid Season Pass Holders, regardless of names of Guests or Guardians present during your visit.
Does my entire family need to process their Season Passes at the same time?
No. Individual vouchers can be separated individually and processed at different times.
I lost my Season Pass. What can I do?
Replacement cards may be printed in Guest Relations for $15/pass.
I lost my Season Pass voucher. What can I do?
If you purchased your vouchers online, you may re-print your vouchers by revisiting your confirmation email. If you need further assistance, please contact Accesso Marketing at 407-956-3549. Season Pass vouchers purchased at Tops are treated like cash and are non-refundable and not replaceable.
Can I get my picture on my Season Pass?
Due to our new park systems, cards no longer have pictures on them. These cards allow for quicker processing and easier entry. You will still need your picture taken during processing, as your photo will appear on the front gate iPad monitors. This prevents theft and someone else from using your Season Pass.
I purchased my Season Passes online and have not received my vouchers yet. What should I do?
When you order online, you must select either “print at home,” “mobile,” or a shipping service option. Vouchers to be printed or viewed on mobile will be received via confirmation email shortly after your purchase is paid in full. Orders that are to be shipped will be received approximately 14 days after the order is placed. If you still need assistance, please call Accesso Marketing at 407-956-3549.
When can I get my Season Pass processed?
Before the season begins, you may come to the Administration building at the park to process your Season Pass. However, you will not receive your benefits (Membership Benefit Guide, Souvenir Mug, or Tickets) until your first visit to the park. You will only be able to receive those items once the park is operating. When the park opens for the season, the Season Pass Processing Office opens an hour before the park and closes two hours prior to park closing. If it is closed upon your arrival to the park, please go directly to Guest Relations for assistance.

Do I receive a parking vehicle decal for FREE parking?
Season Passes that come with FREE parking will have the parking entitlement encoded on your Season Pass card. You will not need a decal or listing on your card this season. Your Season Pass will be scanned at the Toll Booth, and therefore, you may bring any car, as long as you have your pass with you.
What is the Season Pass Meal Plan?
The Season Pass Meal Plan can only be used by Season Pass holders, and can be purchased when you purchase your Season Pass or at a later date. It allows you to receive one meal per daily visit from a selected list of meals that are available in the park. This Meal Plan does not include drinks, souvenir mugs, snacks, etc. If you visit the Meal Plan web page HERE or the online store, you will see a list of meals that are available, and more information about this premium Season Pass option.
Is it more expensive for the Season Pass Meal Plan?
Yes, the Season Pass Meal Plan is always double the price of the current Season Pass price. For example, if the Season Pass is $69.99, the Meal Plan is an additional $69.99. The final total would be $139.98 + tax.

Is there a Halloween-themed event this season?
Unfortunately, no, there will not be a Halloween-themed event at Darien Lake. The park will be closing at the end of September, and previous Halloween/late-Fall seasons have not been well-attended due to the unpredictability of weather.
