on ride photo statistics

c-buzzers,

i'm currently doing research for a small business course where i'm developing a business plan for a small regional amusement park and i've run into a little snag. i'm needing to know what kind of sales that an on ride photo station receives in an hour, on a popular attraction. i know that this honestly depends on how close to capacity the ride is running and many other variables but do any of you guys have any kind of estimate?

I'd say 200 an hour or so. Maybe a little more depending on how many people run the stand.

Oh no........I would say much more than $200 per hour.

If you figure most coasters have a peak rider capacity of 30 to 40 people per train, and the average on-ride photo costs around $10, and the coaster runs about 10-20 trains per hour on average......Even if only a third of those passengers buys an on-ride photo each hour, that still adds up to close to $1000 per hour, just going by the lower number estimates I gave.

This is merely an example, however. Like was previously said, it all depends on ride popularity, capacity, and park visitor numbers on any given day.

Johnathan, I do know that a popular ride that has a high ridership capacity per hour can average $75,000 per week during the summer months. Hope I helped.

D'oh! Well, I guess it's time for my Emily Litella impression (for those old enough to remember Gilda Radner in SNL).........

"Ohhhh! Well, that's different. Never mind." ;)
