Not only do I remember her my dad, my little sis and I fell victim to her
I could never work out why all the rides we had gone on this one particular day were 40p but the maze was 45p.
There was another tkt system (before?) the ABC&D...Must have been early 80s..You just bought a sheet of tickets (This one time I distinctly remember that they worked out at 17p each) and could save money supposedly on rides by using the tickets rather than pay the cash per ride alternative. The Steeplechase was 50p or 3 tickets.....er..thats 51p. I argued with the lady on the paybooth that it wasn't a saving and she just said "Yes."
Sheesh..I can remember all that but ask me what I did yesterday and you have no chance....
Please pass through the turnstiles if you are riding again.
