  1. I Throw them out as soon as the season is over. Why the heck do I need to hold on to more crap?
  2. Right, and Dollywood (which closes much earlier) is known to add an hour or two if attendance warrants it. I could even see them doing this. It’s all about numbers, profitability, making nice with the community leadership in a balancing act.
  3. Not at all. The drop off in numbers and spending probably made it easy to justify closing an hour earlier. orion and Carnivale will more than compensate for the few people who stayed and spent that last hour people complaining “I’m not renewing my pass because of getting less hours for my money” will still renew because they just like to complain. my thoughts.
  4. Wow. Impressed. I don’t remember the “in park” launches last New Years. Definitely brings a new level.
  5. I think it’s fine to vary price, but I do think they need a more consistent “schedule” for the pricing just to be fair. Like “from 6-8 is premium pricing. From 8-9 it goes down 10 and from 9-10 it’s even 10 bucks less. If people knew they could wait and pay less, you might drive more business to the later hours to the point that you wouldn’t need to drop it as much.
  6. Yep, it’s a shame, because the other night they were heading back to the animal area in PS and coming up the hill and around the Eiffel Tower. It looked so cool and romantic. That longer path would make it worth more. I know the logistics on a busy night would make it neatly impossible to go down IS, and around the tower back to Coney, but imagine the kinetics of that! Plus if there was any way to start them in river town, it would be more more thematically appropriate to have horse drawn cartridges in a “country Christmas” area.
  7. And within moments the entitled masses are *****ing!
  8. They REALLY need more signage to explain this. When you know about it, it’s super charming. When you don’t, it’s super odd and “looks like something a high school made” because...well, they did. I had to explain to a few people tonight who were VERY confused and once they heard the whole story they were super in to it. I just feel like they stuck it there with no backstory about its creation.
  9. Yes. They do. There’s an entire promotion based on it.
  10. Dated stuff should never be resold. Either mark it WAY down last night if two, or write it off and trash it. There’s nothing “special” about limited edition stuff a year later. That’s just the “cost” of this type of product. It’s gotta sell or be gone.

  13. Check out the new show at Knotts this year. THAT is what needs to be in KI Theatre. Move snoopys silly spectacular to festhaus and change it up a bit each year (like the Christmas pop show at the handstand, just keep it more “traditional”) but it couldn’t be that hard to restage a few numbers each year. Get rid of the “snoopys missing” bit and just make it a “Peanuts Christmas Review” Then spend sone $$$ partially enclosing (heat, extend the roof, maybe some temp side walls) the International Showplace and put Timkers or some variant of that there.
  14. Opening night the tree lot wasn’t lit and didn’t even look open.
  15. Awesome. I think you captured the spirit of the event EXACTLY. glad you had a great time!
