Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?


How many people fit on a trolley? Can you rent the entire trolley or do a private event?

Yes! Each trolley can fit a max of 25 customers. Inventory is very limited and events are booked on a first come first serve basis. If you're interested in a private trolley please e-mail benefitzco@gmail.com 

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

This event is geared towards adults and you must be 21+ to BYOB and consume alcohol. Any tickets purchased for a minor must be purchased by their parent or guardain. Please note anyone under the age of 21 is not permitted into Atwater when the trolley returns. 

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Please bring your ticket (either printed or electronic) and your ID with you to check-in. 

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

As long as the attendee has a ticket (either printed or electronic) it does not matter if the ticket name matches the name of the attendee. 

Something has come up and I can’t make the event for the date I scheduled. Can I reschedule my ticket for a different date?

You cannot transfer your ticket to a different date. Once tickets are purchased all sales are final. You may give your tickets away (again the ticket name does not need to match the attendee name). 

I would like to add on one more ticket for a friend, but it says the event is sold out. Can I add on just one more ticket?

Unfortunately, no. Once an event says sold out there are no more tickets available for that date. We are limited due to seating constraints on the trolley and cannot oversell the event. 

Are we allowed to drink on the trolley?

Yes! The event is BYOB and you are allowed to drink on the trolley. Beer, wine and liquor are permitted, and we ask everyone to please drink responsibly. We will have cups provided as you are not to drink out of glass on the trolley.

What time should I arrive for the event?

Check-in is from 5:00-5:30pm. If you arrive early that's okay, but we will check-in during those scheduled times. If you arrive late, that's okay too, but the trolley will depart promptly at 6:00pm.
