Each Platinum ticket purchase includes one drink ticket good for a beverage of your choice at official bars around the Trail of Lights. A ride ticket good for one ride on either the Ferris wheel or carousel is also included with each Platinum ticket. Both the drink and ride coupons will be issued upon initial arrival at the Platinum Entrance - located at Lou Neff Road and Stratford Drive. Upon staff scanning and validating your Platinum ticket, a Platinum wristband will be issued that permits access into the Platinum Lounge, golf cart shuttles, and Zilker Lounge. Your Platinum wristband also has detachable tabs for your drink and ride coupons. You can use these coupons in your party as you see fit. The original Platinum wristband holder / purchaser does not have to be the person to use the drink/ride tickets. Please note Platinum wristbands and subsequent drink + ride tickets will not be issued to complimentary Platinum children ages 5 and below. However, you are welcome to pass along your detachable drink and/or ride tickets to the little ones or other guests as you see fit. Of course, only non-alcoholic beverages will be available with a drink ticket for those under 21 years of age.
