Theme Parks & VIP Experiences – well worth it?
Capone’s Dinner & Show is working on implementing a VIP package with special perks. A little over a year ago, the option to add dress-the-part costumes to your online ticket order was implemented and has been very popular. Who doesn’t like a boa or a fedora to wear when attending a speakeasy? Yet Capone’s is very aware that most people are on a tight budget, and want to make their Orlando dinner show experience an affordable one for everyone. Other local attractions offer expensive options…
Most Orlando theme parks offer upgrades and special services of some type. Depending upon the park and what you get for the extra money you spend, it may well be worth it. However, are you willing to pay nearly $500 for a VIP tour? Some might if it meant seeing one of the top attractions in Orlando behind the scenes, no waiting in lines, and a host of other special perks. But…. Would you pay this amount to go to Legoland?
Orlando attractions appeal to families of all economic classes, including the wealthy, and this is what Legoland is counting on. It is a bit of a drive out to this theme park located in Winter Haven, and it caters mostly to families with children age 2 – 12, yet the “Legoland Florida VIP Experience” could very well boost visitor spending for this Merlin Entertainments Group. At least the theme park will be getting more money out of their wealthiest guests.
The cost of the “Legoland Florida VIP Experience” will start at $495 per adult and $445 per child (ages 3-12). It will include your family’s very own private host, tours of a “secret” model shop, a session with one of the park’s master model builders, lunch, front-of-the-line ride access and other perks and gifts. If you want a private cabana, beach towels and a locker at the water park area of the attraction, you’ll pay an additional $100. Mind you, this is for a single day ticket!
Obviously, this VIP package is not for families looking for discount Orlando theme park tickets. This caters specifically to families that have no problem spending well over $1,000 to go to an Orlando attraction. Some families are willing to pay even more, especially during special events. For example, during Red, Brick & Boom (July 4th), Christmas Bricktacular and the Kids New Year’s Eve celebration other perks can be purchased with the VIP tour. Extras will include a VIP picnic and a designated viewing area for fireworks.
While many families are hard pressed to purchase a single day pass at any Orlando attraction, there have been, and always will be, families that can afford to spend a great deal of money while on vacation. It is good for our local economy and good for the area theme parks. Hopefully it is equally good for the VIPs, and they find the extra expense well worth it.
If you happen to be one of these VIP-types and want to make a reservation, or want more information on Legoland’s VIP experience, call 855-753-7777. Details can also be found on their website.
