Good article, it seems that they are not thinking past the day any more. They only do and say what will get them though the day and worry about the consequences tomorrow. I had hoped with the increased presence on Twitter and FB since the beginning of 2018 and with the new park president opening a Twitter account the park was going to be more interactive but that has appeared to only be true when its a kiss up remark. The park president hasn't replied to one thing that I have seen. Information is at the worst I have ever see at BGW, it really does ruin the park experience when you feel like the management is peeking through the windows at you in the park and laughing that they got another one over on the park guests.Nicole said:
Yes, they could, and we asked Marketing that specific question.Sky said:Isn’t there a chance they could announce additional perks for existing members in the coming days?
I’m not familiar with any other major parks but I had to research Six Flags in NJ for work last week and I was blown away by how much more you get with their passes, *especially* their top tier pass, and at a much lower cost than BGW. I don’t know how the parks compare, but as a Premier member I definitely felt a little twinge comparing the packages to what we get at our cost. It’s not Disney-level money, but it’s a hefty chunk of change.Zachary said:Busch Gardens Tampa and Adventure Island season passes are cheaper than Williamsburg's Unlimited Membership (BGW & WCUSA equivalent) yet they get far more perks and have a longer operating calendar.
This is what annoys me the most about all of this.warfelg said:I dunno, I guess my frustration continues to bee this feeling from the park to be fair to everyone. They let people hold onto old rates for a long time, then when switching they offered a discount 'to be fair', and now they are offering this 'to be fair'.
I did the math on the discounted Shoppers Pass at the 2017 Pass Member Preview and it made numeric sense. I think it still does.musicman3204 said:I've had some time to think this over, and I am pretty upset about it. I, personally, pushed for everyone I know to switch to the membership program because I toted that we'd be FINALLY getting all the same perks that BGT and SWO got now that everyone will be paying the same. I look like an IDIOT with my friends right now. I can only pray, they redeem some shred of decency and announce something soon. This makes me happy I bought the season long Shoppers Pass they offered. By the way, does anyone know what a single day shoppers pass costs?? Now I'm questioning if it was a real deal. I usually buy some type of merchandise every visit, so it will pay for itself regardless.
