Just Published: Theme Park Insider: 2016 Year in Review
Is anybody else doing this and what do you think of this new feature at Six Flags Great America?
If someone comes into my park, I don't want them checking their facebook or myspace. I don't want them sitting on their butt in the cafe doing something that they could be doing at home. I want them out on the midway riding rides, watching shows and spending money...being a contribution to the atmosphere rather than a zombie in the corner of the coffee shop with glazed over eyes. For a lot of people, that kind of thing only becomes a distraction. My hypothetical park the epitome of fun, thrills, and immersion, but it's also designed to make money.
I could see such a thing for select people (i.e. members of the press blogging, on location...etc), but not for the average visitor. They can stick with hotspots in the hotel.
Isn't it a waste of your money paying to get into these parks all to sit in a cyber cafe and get online?
