All the event programs are based on higher attendance levels. Something hadda give. What "gave" was the relatively lower prices we once knew. I don't think that it initially was the higher prices that caused lower attendance...it was lower attendance that cause higher prices IMHO.
I don't disagree with any of this but I think the price vs attendance situation is a snowball effect. Prices keep going up, attendance keeps going down. Which causes which? The chicken or the egg, etc.
