Received an interesting email from an ACE member the other day:
I was at Great Escape in Lake George, New York, over the July 4th weekend, and an 8-year-old boy noticed my Legend T-shirt and said "That's at Holiday World, right?"
I confirmed it was, and I expected him to tell me how great the rides were or rave about the water park or just talk about what a great time he had, but all he said was "Free drinks" and gave a thumbs up.
Apparently, even the little ones who probably aren't paying for their own beverages appreciate the value of a dollar. Maybe you don't even need any rides at this point. Just charge admission and let the kids shove a hose attached directly to the soda dispenser down their throats.
Just a thought.
Anyway, I was glad to hear your reputation has started to spread to New York. And thanks for the awesome additions for next year – I'm already planning my trip(s).
