I totally respect your view and see where you're coming from. But if … I totally respect your view and see where you're coming from. But if they calculate that the increase in sales with a lower price wouldn't make up for the lower revenue, then they'd be worse off.



I fully understand that in business hitting the sweet spot in pricing where you maximise your revenue is vitally important.

My argument is that I don't think their current pricing model does that as they are pricing a fair number of families out of the market.

The fact that Chester Zoo is actually doing a 30% off weekend suggests that they are considering this issue themselves.

If you also consider that Zoos have a secondary mission to help with conservation and to educate, then a pricing model that brings more people through the gates should be considered, even if it produced a slight fall in revenue.

A family day out that costs £100 is an awful lot of money for some families, and that's without factoring in the ripoff prices inside for drinks etc.At busy times of year the zoo can be very full so discounts probably wouldn't be advisable, but half price tickets in the off season would enable more families to visit the zoo, and may just generate more income for the zoo overall in the process.I am a supporter of Chester Zoo and have a membership which my family have used many times this year, but I strongly feel they need to make places like this more accessible to struggling families.

I highly doubt they're just trying to rip people off for their own benefit. Anyways, I wish I lived closer. Really want to go there after watching Secret Life of the Zoo. Seems like a nice place.

Visiting the Zoo should be available for anyone to enjoy, and yet they charge £100 for a family of four for the day. Seems like you need to be a member of a wealthy family to enjoy the zoo. Why can't these places charge less to get more people visiting?



I tend to agree with you on price, it would be nice if they offered discounts during the quieter times of the year.

Looks looks the weather did you a favour there as predicted, glad you had a good day out.

The weather might put people off though, it's going to pi$$ down all day round here.

My son & 2 friends went on Sunday, so I checked on here if there were any deals posted as even with Student discount its £15,25.

So as they were going to Cheshire Oaks the day before I said to ask at the tourist information desk , expecting that they's only be able to get standard reduced adult tickets at £11.95 but they were able to purchase reduced student tickets at £8.95 I think. A great saving. Thank you.

Even if you were going for the day it's worth a little de-tour to Cheshire Oaks to get the reduced tickets & then you don't have to queue at the zoo either.

The tickets from Cheshire Oaks are valid any day in 2010
I think adults are £11.95 and child/concessions are £8.95
This is a big saving on the normal price.
Think I paid £41.80 for 2 adults a child and an OAP compared to £55 online direct with the zoo and over £60 at the gate.

Thanks for prompt reply joolzmc! :thumbsup: Repped.

I am not sure if these tickets are ok for bank holidays, I think they are basically prepaid tickets you but from the Tourist info desk, may be worthwhile giving them a call ( last number I have is Tel : 0151 356 7879 ) but I know they now have a new Tourist info Centre so the number may have changed. BTW if these tickets are ok you can also buy reduced rates childrens tickets, you cannot use your voucher for free childrens tickets as they are for full paying adults.

Cheshire Oaks does not open until 10 am , so not sure if Tourist Centre opens any earlier
