FAQ

Question About Summer Activities?

What do we need to bring when we rent?

Bring a driver’s license and a credit card with an available credit limit of at least the rental amount plus $200 for the security deposit. If you are renting two or more machines, the security deposit will be $200 each machine.  If a previous reservation was made for the rental by somebody else in your group, the person who is actually signing the lease agreement will need to bring his/her own credit card and driver’s license. All members of the party must sign our rental agreement.

Is gas and tax extra?

Yes, gas and tax is extra. The equipment is always full of gas at the beginning of the rental, and needs to be filled at the end of the rental. At our on-site beachfront locations, we fill and calculate the gas from our lakeside fuel tanks at the end of your rental time (and during your rental time if you run low). At the Bear Lake Funtime off-site location, the equipment needs to be brought back full of gas by stopping at a gas station. Tax rates for the rentals are between 6% to 8% depending on the location.

Is damage insurance available?

Yes, a Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) insurance is available for the rental machines which covers physical damage to the unit. We offer this insurance on all of our equipment except for UTV side-by-side rentals where no CDW insurance is available. The insurance cost is at the rate of 10% of the rental cost. There’s a $900 deductible with a maximum coverage of $5,000. The means you would be responsible for damage amounts less than $900 and over $5,000. CDW insurance is not required, but it’s recommended.

How old do you have to be to rent?

To sign our rental agreement and drive the equipment, you must be 18 or older. Passengers on the equipment can be younger than 18.

How much gas do the machines use?

The machines use the following approximate amount of gallons per hour depending on how the machine is used or ridden: Sea-Doo 2 to 4 gallons per hour. Boat 3 to 6 gallons per hour. UTV 1 to 2 gallons per hour.

Do you offer any discounts?

You can also check out our Facebook page, where we post exclusive discounts from time to time at www.facebook.com/bearlakefun.

Question About Winter Activities?

Can I ride the snowmobiles from the Bear Lake Funtime location

Yes, under normal snow conditions you can drive the snowmobiles from the Bear Lake Funtime location to access the trails above Garden City. If there’s not enough snow down by our store, we have trailers available to use free of charge. We also may be able to assist you with delivery to a trailhead.

How far is it to ride or to trailer the snowmobiles from Bear Lake Funtime to the summit-sinks area?

It’s about 10 miles from our shop in Garden City to the summit-sinks area in Logan Canyon. It takes about 20 minutes to trailer the snowmobiles, and approximately 45-60 minutes to drive snowmobiles on the trail. If you want more of a chance to see wildlife, we recommend to drive the snowmobiles from our store on the trail.

Is gas, oil, and tax extra?

Yes, gas, oil, and tax are extra. The snowmobiles leave our shop full of gas, and must be brought back full of gas by stopping at a gas station (preferred). We also have gasoline available at our shop for sale at comparable market rates. The 2-stroke oil cost is $8.50/machine/day, and our specific oil must be used. The initial oil in the snowmobile will last at least one day, and we’ll send you with extra oil for multiple day rentals. The tax rate for sales tax is 7.95%.

Is insurance available?

Yes, a Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) insurance is available for the rental machines which covers physical damage to the unit. We offer this insurance on all of our equipment except for UTV side-by-side rentals where no CDW insurance is available. The insurance cost is at the rate of 10% of the rental cost.

CDW insurance is not required, but it’s recommended.

How much gas do the snowmobiles use?

A snowmobile will usually go all day on a tank of gas (11 gallon capacity). We can lend you 5 gallon gas cans to take with you if you’d like.

Do you do half-day snowmobile rentals?

We don’t take reservations for half-day rentals. The only time we allow a half-day rental is the day of, and starting at 11 am if all the snowmobiles haven’t already been rented out for the full-day. The half-day price is only slightly less than the full-day price.

How old do you have to be to drive the rental snowmobile?

To sign our rental agreement and drive our rental snowmobiles you must be 18 or older. Passengers on the equipment can be younger than 18.
