That's one factor of why I WILL NOT GO THERE.

If they would offer reasonable prices on things, I would be more prone to go there. Especially on luxury things.

Turn to ESPN and notice the NASCAR race has only HALF the seats sold at INDY, of all places. Pricing themselves into bankrupcy.

How about, because the idiots that go there are stupid enough to keep paying it.

high school economics. supply and demand. Supply isn't scarce, demand is high. That means you can exploit the demand by charging increased amounts until your profits drop. That sweet-spot is where they are able to rape the public the most, and they like it. Get that money. Fuck your kid's hydration. Pay up, chump.

I have to say, the burgers at the Georgia Aquarium are REALLY good. I didn't want to pay $5 for a burger, but it was totally worth it!

Simple economics.

Look around the parking lot at al lof the Escalades parked there. the individuals who arrive inthese have A LOT OF MONEY (welfare, drug dealing inccome, armed robbery income, etc...)

They simply do not care what something costs becasue YOU are the one paying for it for them.

Does this little cartoon explain anything for you?

Fries are certainly overpriced!

But $4 for a line of coke really isn't that out of line.

The question you should be asking is...

Why would anyone pay that?


If no one did... the prices would come down.

You should try the fudge at Six Fags. I heard it is packed really well. Just be careful though, sometimes it has nuts in it.

Do you want the hassle of taking your own food?

Do you want the hassle of leaving the park to get something?

It's called convenience. Most people eat there are to stupid/lazy to plan for anything. They drive there, pay for their tickets and go play...THAT'S AS MUCH WORK AS THEY WANT TO DO!

FYI, that's one of the most (if not the most) profitable thing at those "parks".

Because they CAN, and because people WILL pay that as they have no other choice (at that place).
