Fastlane from an economic standpoint

Thursday, July 19, 2001 8:23 PM
Think about it really. If Six Flags installs pay-for fastlane systems at 10 of their parks, and only sell 1000 tickets at each park for 10 dollars apiece, that's 100,000 dollars a day in profit. After 10 days, that's 1 million dollars. Thus, an effective solution to solve their supposed debt problems.

I am in no way supporting this system. I think it is a way of people to pay their way into an outlawed activity. It's line-jumping, and it makes us who don't want to shell out an extra 10 bucks every time we visit the park have to wait even longer in the often uncovered queue lines.

However, I am saying that from an economic standpoint, Fastlane is an effective moneymaker. It just angers us enthusiasts, and probably many of the GP greatly. Thus, I think that Six Flags Corp should seriously review this system and make revisions.

I have an idea. The park should use the money earned from fastlane to cover the uncovered queue! Although that would never happen, because they would lose money by selling less $3 water.
