What on Earth do they mean by "a standard ticket only gets you 7 rides" and other such statements? Blatantly incorrect facts as usual, or just misrepresentation?
In that example, I think it means 7 is the average number of rides guests can get on without purchasing fastrack.
Thanks for clearing that up, I had a feeling this was what they were going for, just hoped I was wrong.
Citation needed right there. I know the Mirror have cited a source, but I'd love to know the conditions of how the "researchers" got their information and how many times they did it to ensure that they really were visiting on an "average" Saturday. I have a feeling the number of visits per park will be not dissimilar from 1.
I get that us enthusiasts talking about how we're capable of so many more is a poor counter-argument, but on any day that Thorpe Park is so busy that I can only get on 7 rides in a single day, there's no way I can get on 13 rides at Legoland on an indentical day. Not only this, but it depends purely on which 7/9/12/13 rides you want to get on, which physically cannot be standardised across the parks due to their difference in nature. How long are you planning on spending eating lunch or browsing shops? What was the weather like? To visit each park on a Saturday in July and conclude at the end of it that everyone gets the same value for money is misrepresentation to the point of ridicule.
Also, a plus size clothing brand is a reliable source of theme park news nowadays, apparently ...
