Vote for Season Passes at Mt Olympus

Tuesday, April 13, 2004 6:38 PM

They are considering offering Season Passes and are asking people to vote on their website (click the season pass link) if they want them or not. I would go there a lot more if I did not have to shell out for wrist bands or ride tickets every time I went. Vote "yes" for season passes. :)

I voted yes, but $89.00 is a little expensive for this park.

Well, if you go 4 or more times, it's worth the money.

Thanks for the vote. I agree that 89 is steep for this park, but the ride tickets were expensive too. I dropped so much cash there, I would love to get a season pass at 89.

When I started this, the vote was 82-61; now it is 89-61. You guys rock!

I'm torn which way to vote. On one hand, I would (obviously) like for the park to sell season passes. On the other hand, no, I probably wouldn't pay $89 for them (but I would pay a lesser amount). am I supposed to communicate that? :)

It currently costs $28 to spend a day at the park (surprisingly less than what it used to cost for a half day wristband!). But while I may visit more than four times each summer, I don't see myself ever spending the whole day. Thus, I'm not sure it's worth it.

I do like what the park is doing, and it looks great (well, except for the fact that Zeus will no longer provide such great night rides). Sadly, however, I won't be able to just stop by for a ride or two.

You can vote anyway you want, but here is how I see it. Olympus is not an all day park. I often stop there for an hour or two on my way to CP or SFGAm. (I live in MN) I could also go for an evening of night rides, and then drive home in the morning. So even though the price per day is down, that does not help too much. Even if the price of the season pass is high, you still have an option (that you don't have to take) to visit for a couple hours whenever. I was spending more money here than at any other park last year because I did not have that option. Also, the season passes here would include go-carts and I believe that is an upcharge anywhere else. I could be wrong on that.

The vote now is at 115-65!

You're correct that go-carts are included in the admission price, but personally I'm not into them.

I'm still not sure if a season pass (at $89) would benefit me or not. Heck, I'm not sure if it'd really benefit many people until it turns into more or a ride park (if that is indeed the direction it is headed). As I said, I used to swing by for a ride here and there and it was nice to be able to pay per ride. I suppose if I take more than 32 rides per season it's worth the price (I believe tickets were $5.50 last season), but I really doubt I'll ride that much, especially with Avalanche new this season.

Regardless, the park is looking great. It's still a lot of dirt, of course, but the new buildings are a huge improvement over the old ones. Now if only the proposed season pass price was lower everything would be perfect. :)
