Six Flags sends poor people to the back of the Bus (or coaster train)

kpjb's avatar That's fine... I'm not saying that Universal isn't a hell of a bargain. If I didn't have a wife & kid, I'd go there and Busch and never set foot in Disney.

Doesn't detract from my $45/day including food, though. I honestly don't think that Disney's that expensive. Even their food prices are in line. $1.25 for a bottle of water? Try finding that at a Cedar Fair, Universal, or Six Flags park.

My first visit to Six Flags Great America this past Saturday really wasn't that costly. I was very impressed with the amount and low price of new merchendise. The selection of food offering also was better. All of this resulting in increased spending by all five of us. 4 new sweatshirts @ $24.99, 3 new mugs around $9.00 each. Johnny Rockets $14.99 x 5. Great new candy items $25. Now I'm not including any of the discounts offered. We sumed it up this way, "The money will go towards 2009's replacement of Vu and Splashwater Falls." In the end we left happy and the parks pockets received what will be lot's of spending based on current product trends. For the GP Great America is offering tons of discounts on admission. Let's keep in mind Disney builds what they do based on the profits turned every year. It look like Six flags is learning and hopefully soon will be in the black.

"Disney discriminates against poor people." What a load of crap.

Does the State of Hawaii discriminate against the poor? I can't afford to take a vacation there either. So, instead I go to the much cheaper (and within a day's drive or so) mountains of the Smokies.

Does Bon Jovi discriminate against the poor? Their concert tickets are pretty expensive. Does Direct TV discriminate against the poor? I can't afford the service myself...therefore they discriminate.

I buy ground beef more often than T-bone steaks b/c I can't afford to buy T-bones regularly. Gee...Publix is discriminating against me.

Now, I'm not a proponent of assigned seating on a coaster train or only allowing people who buy "access" passes to sit in certain seats...but let's not start throwing "discrimination" around.

Actually, I'm rarely on the boards on Fridays at all, much less on the weekends. But the cold and rain scuttled the running plans that day.

Nevertheless, I still read up on Mondays 'fore I post.

Just me, I guess!
