Has anyone seen the ads for this event in their home town or actually gone to the show? It’s Walking with Dinosaurs-The Live Experience and it will be in my area starting this Wed. the 11th. In April, my mother asked us kids (4 of us plus our kids) if we all wanted to go together since all the little ones are into dinosaurs (and my dad really wanted to go!). We all said sure, so I hopped on the computer to look for tickets. Yeah, I about fell over when I saw the price!!!! Tickets range from $27.50 – $72.50 and that does NOT include the convenience charge ($8.15), building fee( $2), and tax(6.5% in MN not counting whatever the particular city charges). So, when you add all that up the cheap tickets are around $35 per person for the nosebleed seats! I told my mom that the kids wouldn’t have any fun way up there and I’m not sitting way up there to walk way down the stairs every time someone has to go potty! She agreed and after more looking for lower level cheaper tickets (which there weren’t any) we looked at each other and said, “Guess not!”.
Does anyone else see a problem with the amount that shows are charging for tickets? This is a show aimed at children and I can’t afford to bring them! I did take my kids to Disney on Ice in March and the tickets were half as expensive for the better seats. Nowadays, who can afford to do these kinds of things? My kids would have LOVED to see those dinosaurs, but not at $140 for the tickets, gas money to get there, and food at some point during the trip. I told them we would save that money for our family vacation this summer and do something fun because they were disappointed. It’s like the big companies are forgetting that it’s the little guy that keeps them in business in the first place!
