We went to the state fair last night. My husband and I love going to fairs and carnivals. But like everything else, they are getting to danged
expensive! You have a steep gate entry. Drinks are 5 bucks. It is incredible how expensive any function is getting. I thought these things are
supposed to be family friendly.
But what REALLY got us was our son wanted a ferris wheel ride. We were floored to find out it is 6 tickets a person. A ticket is 1.25 each! Each ride
was like this!
So just for all three of us to go on a ferris wheel ride was 23$?
I understand they have to pay for electricity and insurance. But good heavens. Lower it a little and you might actually get people to go on it.
so needless to day, since it was a couple hours worth of pay to go on one ride, only two could go. And a family couldn't ride it together. Too
expensive. Especially since we wanted to go on more then one ride.
So a couple of rides, games, Most of which started at 3$ a piece and a sandwhich and ice cream ended up costing us 100 last night.
I would like us to go the ren fair this year also. But that is effectively now 27$ a person to get in. What the hell is with these prices?
