  Sky high prices for theme park tickets
Updated 24 February 2002, 11.01
Rollercoaster
Alistair thinks theme parks are too expensive for families to visit.

"Everyone likes to go to a theme park for the rides, food and general atmosphere.

But most people don't realise how much their parents or person taking them has to pay.

Way too much

In one theme park for example it would cost two adults and two children 80 just to get in and go on all of the rides.

Theme park ride
I think this is way too much to be paying just to go on a couple of rides for a day.

As well as that you have to pay for food and lots of people have a go on the games while they are there.

New rides

The parks try to get people to come by opening one new ride every year and then putting loads of adverts on TV and on buses.

The problem is that this works. Everyone sees all these things and then peer pressure makes lots of people go.

I think everyone should make a stand against these companies and their high prices.

This year everyone should not go to any theme park which charges too much, and then they might think about lowering the prices."

Alistair, 14, Olney
