Jeff Seibert said that about Winterfest back in 2005. too. Create a sense of urgency, hope people will buy. Often a self fulfilling prophecy. But, so far. has KI yet sold out on Fast Lane?
If there's a certain number they want to sell, and it's not happening, I wonder what the park will do then?

It's still pretty much in test mode. I'm not sure the goal is to sell a set percentage is the primary target. Rather, profit maximization, assuring Fast Lane buyers a worthwhile experience and not dramatically affecting non Fast Lane guests are probably the three major goals.
I'm wondering if enough aren't sold, if ride operations can be/will be manipulated to the point where the demand for Fast Passes increases (in other words, ensuring there are long lines).

It was the same on Thursday. Absolutely crazy the amount of cars in the parking lot!
I just couldn't help but notice how long the lines were last week, by 11AM on a weekday. The Racer's line was probably 40 people deep into the midway by noon. I know several of the rides were running less trains, etc.

Raise season pass price and/or
Raise parking price.
If done optimally:
Fewer guests, less waiting, enhanced guest experience, higher profits.
Free parking, free admission, free season passes. Long, long lines. Poor guest experience. Park loses money.
Smart pricing equals happy guests, happy employees and happy unit holders. What is the exact best pricing? Exactly how much? There's the rub.

Then again, I have over-estimated the average consumer before....
