Ticket Prices and Discounts

Saturday, August 24, 2002 2:01 PM
Amusement parks are constantly offering discounts on their $40 to $50 admission prices. Bring in a Pepsi can, get $10 off. Get your tickets off the internet, slash $15 from the regular price. Buy one ticket, and get the other free. With these and other discounts offered throughout almost the entire season, why can't parks just lower their ticket prices in the first place? Instead of offering to get $10 off of a $45 ticket, why not make the ticket $35 in the frist place?

Because, if they lowered the price, they wouldn't get the extra money off people who don't drink soda, who don't have the internet, who don't look for discounts, who plan trips on the fly.

Good point Teenage Ninja. So they offer the discounts for people who look for them, and then they have the higher pricesas well, for the people who don't look for discounts.

I saw this the other day while sitting outside the main gate at my home park, some teenagers were digging through the trashcans looking for coke cans to get a discount.
