Just took the two small grandkids to opening day. $10 bucks? That would have provided one midway ride for each of them, with 2 bucks to spare depending on the ride. It's not an inexpensive experience, and while I'm commenting, the duration of the rides is about 90 to 120 seconds, pretty short. I spent $15 to park, $21 for admission, $30 on the midway, $9 for the butterfly pavilion, $21 for food (could have been $50), and the kids are 3 and 5. Lots of fun for 4 hours, but best have a hundred bucks with you to get the job done.
