WHAT IS THIS NEW BLASTPASS SYSTEM?
BlastPass is a cashless wristband system that will replace using paper coupons to purchase food and beverages as well as kiddie rides at A Taste of New Orleans. Credits are stored on your BlastPass wristband as a convenient and easy method of payment. 1 credit = $1.00. As you make your purchases, simply show your wristband to the vendor who will scan it, and the purchase credits will be automatically deducted. Credits can be refilled at any of the BlastPass Credit Booths or at any of the Self-Service Refill stations around the park. (Please note, only the T-Shirt / Souvenirs vendor will accept credit/debir cards.)
HOW CAN I PURCHASE A BLASTPASS WRISTBAND?
Advanced Purchase: You can purchase your wristbands in advance for $25, $50 or $100 credit increments on our A Taste of New Orleans event page HERE
Weekend of the Event: BlastPass wristbands can be purchased and loaded with any credit amount when you are at the event. There will be Credit Booths and Self-Service Reload stations throughout the park.
Wristband Fee: There is a one-time charge of $2 for each BlastPPass wristband.
HOW DO I USE MY WRISTBAND?
You purchase credits with either a credit/debit card or cash. As you make purchases, the vendor you purchase from will scan your BlastPass wristband and credits will be deducted from the wristband. The vendor will show you the scanner with the number of credits deducted from your wristband and the number of credits you have remaining on your wristband after your purchase. When you run out of credits, you can refill your wristband at any of the BlastPass credit booths or at one of the Self-Service credit refill stations located around the park.
WILL I BE ABLE TO USE MY BLASTPASS WRISTBAND FOR ALL PURCHASES?
No. Your BlastPass wristband will not work at our T-Shirt and sounvenir booth. You will have to use a credit/debit card or cash for these purchases.
Your BlastPass wristband will not work to buy gate admission tickets into the event. You will need to use cash at our entry gates or purchase your gate admission entry ticket online HERE.
All other Booths at the event will only use BlastPass wristbands to make purchases
WHAT IF I LOSE MY BLASTPASS WRISTBAND?
If you lose your wristband, you have lost your credits. The BlastPass wristband was designed to be secured to your wrist. We encourage you to do this. For your safety, no CREDIT CARD or PERSONAL INFORMATION is stored on the BlastPass wristbands.
WHEN DO MY CREDITS EXPIRE?
Credits on your BlastPass wristband are good to use all three days of our event. Credits expire Sunday April 3rd at 10:00pm.
HOW DO WE RELOAD OUR WRISTBAND WHEN IT RUNS LOW OF CREDITS?
You can reload your BlastPass wristband at any of the Credit Booths or Self-Serve Reload Stations around the park. The locations will be clearly marked.
ARE THERE REFUNDS FOR ANY CREDITS NOT USED?
No. Refunds will not be issued for unused credits. A reminder: Since SAZA is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization, all monies spent at our events are tax deductible. 100% of the proceeds go back into the community as we are all volunteers.
