Survey on Memberships

So with all the surveys out to pass holders, I got an interesting one on memberships and potential changes. They focused on what we currently get vs what’s in the three attachments.

I’ll be honest in that I like those other ones offered. They did ask a bunch on pricing. What’s too much, what’s too little, ect. The priceing was $18-20 a month for low level, $22-$25 for the mid level, $28-34 for the highest level. They asked a bunch about getting extras with it such as parking, gifts, bigger discounts. I can try to recall any questions people may have.

What are your thoughts on the levels of memberships asked about?

I wonder if the basic membership would replace the fun card

I got the feeling that's the case. They grouped these questions together.

Basic meant to replace fun card.

The Unlimited is meant to replace the two low levels of passes.

And Premier meant to replace the Platinum.

I've been on the EZ-Pay plan for quite a while with grandfathered pricing. I assuming switching to this membership program would wipe that out and mean a significant cost increase for my family, but with little added benefit.

To the average person this change wouldn't be any big deal, but it is for those in my situation. Hopefully they make some allowance for us to lessen the blow after we've been regular customers for all these years.

This was just a survey. Clearly they are looking at implementing a new structure, but I doubt anything has been decided yet.

Wasn't it announced within the last couple of years that grandfathering in of ez pay pricing was ending? I remember reading that after 5 years the pass holder would be bumped up to current pricing. Or was this just a rumor?

I believe they said that, but we haven't seen it happen yet, of course. (That I am aware of.)

It's in the terms of the EZPAY contract on the website. It you purchase a pass on the payment plan, your monthly rate will be good for 5 years.

Don't think it would or at least not right away. This year they were advertising the easy pay as locking you into that price for 5 years. I know a time limit is new but given that they heavily advertised that as a perk to going that route I can't see them being able to get rid of it right away. For people that have had there passes more then 5 years no idea on. But that my 2 cents for what it's worth.

The attachments appear to be gone. Does anyone have a copy or can they summarize the different levels?

I’m betting the attachments disappeared as a result of the recent database issue. We will try to restore them.

Great, thanks!

Did the survey elaborate on what the difference between admission and guaranteed admission was? Surely having an top-tier pass wouldn't grant you access when the park is at capacity, right?

Black out days. I'm presuming in guaranteed admission there wouldn't be any days off limits to you. I imagine with the other one they would do things like take days around holidays (Memorial days, 4th of July, Labor Day) off the table, along with other high traffic days.

But the mid-tier and top-tier both say no blockout dates. It may not mean anything at all, maybe they just didn't word things consistently across both descriptions. I just found the fact that one says "Guaranteed" admission on one doesn't as odd.
