It's now going to cost you $2.50 to ride the leap the dips coaster at lakemont park. The coaster is the oldest operating coaster in the world.
I got a response from the park. Here it is.
Please be aware that it was with much regret that we were left with no choice but to make the Leap The Dips an "extra pay attraction"For the past number of years, the Leap The Dips has incurred start up costs that are twenty (20) times greater than the Skyliner roller coaster. The Leap The Dips simply was not built or designed to take the volume of riders that it attracts, especially on our promotional days.We were left with no choice but to attempt to limit the number of riders and or to charge a fee to ride the coaster. If we would not take this step, it would be very likely that the Leap The Dips would not be available for anyone to ride in the very near future.In an attempt to offset the disappointment of this ride now being an extra pay attraction, each rider will receive a VERY NICE keepsake ticket.We appreciate your patronage and if you should have any further questions regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact me.
You posted this in the other thread... we don't need two, really.
