Check out the pic. This is a great idea, and the reason I'm thinking this is worthy of its own thread because I've never seen another park offer something like this.
It reminds me very much of those huge packages that Disney offers. You know - the ones where you get 50 buhzillion things included in the price that nobody could possibly take advantage of in the course of a single vacation. Still though, I'm sure many people end up dropping $100 for a day at this park anyway, so I can see why a lot of people with some extra cash to blow would go for it.
Anyone seen this at other SF parks yet?
Specatular deal. I just rehash what I said in the other thread here:
Initially my thought was, "Oh man, deep discounts already", but then I figured if the average guest is scoring the $39 ticket and shying away from most in park spending due to the pricing then maybe they see this as something worth it and drop a guaranteed $100 rather than the $40 or $50 they might have otherwise. (although admittedly, it kind of goes against my general take on things, but a family of 4 handing over $400 at the gate cannot be hurting business)
You know what I'd have done? Added 'free parking' to the list of perks and made the price $119. In addition to all the crap you get, I'd also hand back $15 in cash. Odds are that $15 would get spent in the park. :)
I suppose it works like the free drink thing. I mean a park like HW pretty much made their only admission a $37 'package deal' that includes drinks rather than charging what similarly sized parks do and then selling drinks at 2 or 3 bucks a pop.
This feels a lot like a similar 'package deal' admission.
I hadn't even thought about the coaster angle until I started typing this. With this sort of package you could probably cut your coaster riding time (and waiting time) by quite a bit for your average member of the GP and still have a great day.
Also, I'm pretty sure they still offer the VIP package. For $100 you get 4 hours of "VIP access" to all the rides. Basically it's a 4 hour exit pass for every ride. It might not be available anymore (it was last year), but I thought I remembered seeing the VIP signs in addition to the All-Inclusive Package.
Edit - Heh. Yeah, I guess it is still available. The VIP sign is next to the All-Inclusive sign in that pic. *** Edited 6/26/2006 1:38:14 AM UTC by MrX***
