I think this won't really go anywhere. Besides those rich enough to do it, no one really can. The main problem here is that there's nowhere to,
well, go. You won't be taking off from Mexico and landing on Mars, the Moon, or even in another country.
It's like sky-diving really. It's the thrill that drives people to it.
However, once you sky-dive, may you'll do it again - but for $200,000... that's a little bit much.
Now, if there was another space-port in, say, China or Europe - then it would have better chances of staying around - as people could reuse it with a
purpose - of getting from Point A to Point B very, very fast. As it is, they're going from Point A and back to Point A - and that's all.
