The answer to opening this container is to look at the Slow Roaster ferris wheel in front of you. Like everything else at the Coffee World amusement park in Watery, this ride is based on coffee. The phrase “Only Striped Cups” refers to the cup-shaped passenger cars, three of which have blue and white stripes on them. You’ll use the numbers listed on them as the code to open the lock.

When it comes to the order of these numbers, your hint is on the top of the Cult Stash itself. The ferris wheel moves in a counter-clockwise direction, but the arrow drawn on the piece of paper goes in a clockwise direction. This would seemingly imply that they need to go in numerical order like a clock. The code to open it is 147.
