Why don't they simply reduce the price on fairground rides to get them full of people? It must cost the same (or near enough) to run the thing full as empty or with two people, who are just getting on here, and it would create an atmosphere of people having fun, which would in turn make others want to join in....don't you think?
This was the Edinburgh Wheel. It costs£4. I estimate it holds at least 100 people. In all the time we sat in Valvona and Crolla (lovely coffee) in Jenners we didn't see it with more than 6 people on it at one time. £24. For £1 each they could have had 100 people. £100. Seems to me a no brainer, but what do I know about running fairgrounds!
I find these city centre mini fairground with only one lonely child on a ride kind of sad....it's not what it's meant to be like, is it?
They could experiment with a very low price like a 'happy hour' and see if my theory works.
My husband's Why Don't They? 'Why don't they clean up the Scott Monument?' (that blackened pile to the left of the wheel) in Edinburgh's Princes Street.
What is your 'Why Don't They....?' We all have at least one. Some of us have dozens.
Ah, if only the world was run our way.
Still not connected, but I have a friend who is!
