This dovetails a bit with the article Robert wrote regarding Fastpasses and ticket books.
I found that reading the comments, just about everyone wanted their cake and the ability to eat it too. That is not quite how the world works.
There is a triple constraint in the amusement industry....there are more, but for the sake of this discussion, let's limit it down. The constraints are Price vs. Overcrowding vs Capacity. You can adjust one.
Raising the price reduces overcrowding and does nothing for capacity.
Raising capacity increases the price and doesn't typically do much about overcrowding, as the marketing department uses the new rides to increase ticket sales. Increasing capacity also takes long periods of time.
Flatly decreasing overcrowding can only be done by limiting the amount of patrons through the front gate, freezing out people, making tickets more scarce and thus more expensive for specific dates, and does nothing for capacity.
So where do you fall in the age old argument? Please give supporting details behind why you are behind your chosen viewpoint.Tweet
