Great Adv. Drops Price $10
« on: May 27, 2008, 11:09:13 AM »
Looks Like all the parks are getting a discount. Why do they think they had trouble getting people to the park for a Day.
Some people just don't want to buy a season pass and just want to go once.
If the price was lower 4-6 years maybe SIX would not be in the DEPT they are in today.

Wow...From what I hear the park was packed this weekend. 
I wonder if they really needed to do this.  Summer is here!
I may try to hit the park Friday night.  Does the parade run Friday nights?
Or just Saturday/Sunday?

They needed to Ken. It was a great weekend after a pretty ho-hum week. Plus, we were paying over $4 a gallon for gas in the midwest. That is coming soon. I don't think people will drive as far for fun. 
Prepare to weather the storm!

Hi, Im New York, My gas costs about $4.15+/gal.

I think the $10 prices cut is a great idea, it brings in more people who in essence will spend more money on food/qbots/games etc.
