Dislike button needed now more than ever
Quick, someone knock up a photoshop of Mandy tweeting a picture of Spinball!
strange though, bloke on the south pier said that the beach are getting spinball next year ...
Where on earth would they stick it though? Surely they'd be better off with a custom layout?
Stick it on the old mouse site? Just scale it by 50%.
Could I be the first desperate closed season saddo to point out that we can collect our season passes next month.
I feel so much better knowing that the light at the end of the tunnel shines that little bit brighter.
Libby back up for sale yet again. Starting price 2K
Charging loyal pass-holders £90-£99 a few weeks ago, selling season passes for only £80 today... Gulp.
(Glad I waited)
I paid £180 for 2 renewal passes and I could have got them for £80 + £70 - (£30 cheaper)
Not really rewarding loyalty is it.
This is utterly apalling business practice when they advertised and ran a renewal offer throughout October for £90, and guaranteed that it would be their lowest price.
Yet again they're giving their most loyal customers another kick in the teeth, by taking the bulk of renewal sales at a higher price and then sneakily running a lower priced offer to new passholders to make a quick sale.
Interestingly they're responding to all the positive posts on social media but ignoring all the loyal long-standing passholders whom they've upset.
Here is the reply I received. So basically sod off, we will do what we want. (Which of course they can do). But doesnt make me feel like a valued customer
Sadly, as per usual, it’s a case of they can do what they like. Did they actually say back at the £90 renewals that it was guaranteed to be their lowest price? If so then that is rather poor
73 days until opening day.
I got the exact same email back from them.
They "care about their customers" so much that they're using a copy-and-paste response...
Not even worth complaining to them. Whilst I agree it’s poor for them to say ‘we guarantee this will be the lowest renewal price’ then change their minds a month later, they will always do as they please and will always issue a copied & pasted response to people asking the same question. Next year, don’t bother renewing at first opportunity. Play the game and wait. Simples!
I also got exactly the same response.
Been done for £50 by giving them my money early, very frustrating
It's always a gamble though, getting the cheapest price.
Always has been.
Are you still getting good value for your money...that is the real question.
Just bring me news of a nice shiny new coaster under a roof at Blackpool Central on friday please!
Bought flights to Orlando in the Virgin Atlantic sale one year. Just over a month later I would have got the same flights for £250 less per person. That's just the way it goes.
The problem is that, looking at previous years, renewal offer was usually the lowest price throughout, was it not? Also got done for £20 on two passes...
Hardly the same, we're talking about charging more for a renewal (customers who have been season pass holders for years) vs a cheaper quick sale to new customers.
I don't accept that it's a "gamble", if you advertise that a price will be the lowest possible price then it should be!
