Theme-park operators have been stepping up their long-standing practice of offering exclusive tours that can easily add $200 to standard admission prices of $50 and up. Such packages provide guests a chance to cut in the front of lines and be escorted around the park to enjoy perks ranging from buffet lunches to complimentary souvenirs. The Wall Street Journal reviews the programs at Disneyland, Seaworld Orlando, Six Flags Over Georgia and Islands of Adventure.

Definitely a good read. It's seems the coaster fans on this site would like the Six Flags one the best since food is apparently unlimited. :)

Yea halltd, because everyone on CoasterBuzz is fat and we can't stop eating. (insert invisible roll eyes smiley.)

Well, you missed my joke then. Based on all the threads recently about free drinks and overpriced food, it seems that the people here would like food for free. Hence the joke and my smiley.

I'm assuming that Gonch used his smiley for a completely different reason then. :)

See! Even the Wall Street Journal can recognize when people are cutting in line.

"Our four-person gastronomic tally: seven lemonades, four helpings of ice cream, four bottles of water, three orders of chicken fingers and fries, one pizza slice and a salad/"
All that for only $800!
BTW, did Six Flags unload some more parks while we weren't watching? THe article says they have 12 parks across the country.

And yet people pay it.
Doesn't have to make sense as long as it works. :)
