Okay, maybe the *real* question is... did Cedar Point raise prices *enough*?
By the way, Robert, would you mind checking the TPI videos? I've been trying to add one for the better part of a week.
On topic, an extra buck isn't going to generate too much hate. Look at what happens everytime the big three raise their prices - it's usually several dollars at a time. When they make those jumps, people come out of the woodwork to complain.
But a buck? That puts a nice little bump in the accounts and is too miniscule for anyone to really get worked up over (especially locals, since most of them undoubtedly got season passes). I think they went the right way. Now they can start next season with another buck bump and no one's going to get their panties in too much of a wad.
Attendance has been pretty much flat this year, but there still is plenty of season left with Halloweekends coming up. I'll predict about 3.2 to 3.4 million for the year.
