    So 2014 is almost certainly going to be the year it finally reaches £50. I wish I put money on it. I'd be able to afford to go.

    Free market capitalism leading to monopolies exploiting their consumers as to facilitate the celebrated greed that is core to the system?

    Who'd have thunk it?!

    How much has it gone up in the past year, and what is inflation rate?

    Be interesting to compare this, plus capital expenditure (smiler not being the cheapest of rides) and a guess at the year attendance to see if they've actually made a net gain.

    £49.99 at the end of the year I think. Actually it could be less than that as it only rose 80p DURING the season last year.

    Inflation right now is 2.2%

    This is a 2.56% rise, above inflation just in itself. And inflation is low right now.
