As a retail manager by trade, the whole set up of UK parks confuses me frankly. It's a well known fact that parks make very little from entrance fees, but mega bucks from accommodation, shops and food. If I was running a park, I'd want to get customers in first thing (even if rides aren't open) so I could flog them breakfast and £50 worth of shop merchandise that I bought off suppliers for 50p. At lunch time, I'd want to go for the impulse and entice people with cleverly placed units dotted around. And rather than throw everyone out at tea time so they all flock to the nearest McDonald's drive thru on the way back to the M6, I'd want to draw them into my restaurants for an evening meal.
