Not all operating days are created equally, so why are your prices set the same?

Every attraction manager knows no two days are the same. With complex intra-week trends, seasonal patterns, and fluid weather forecasts, consumer demand for admissions can vary substantially.

Managers often find themselves stuck in a never-ending cycle of surges and lulls, trying to boost revenue through promotions and discounts. These promotions leave money on the table because they insufficiently capture the complexities of ever-evolving market demand.

Dynamic pricing is the modern solution to maximizing an attraction’s profitability. It is the is the process of tailoring the prices of goods and services to maximize profitability in a constantly evolving marketplace. Many factors affect the demand for your attraction’s tickets: day of week, weather, holidays, capacity, and more. Ticket prices are set by market forces and can vary day-to-day.

Myths of Dynamic Pricing

Myth

I already offer daily specials or tickets via discount outlets, so dynamic pricing wouldn’t improve my profitability.

Response

Daily specials can be effective, but they often target small, specific subsets of your market, such as young children or seniors. Dynamic pricing is designed to offer tickets at current market rates to all market segments, yielding a larger market potential.

Myth

My Attraction is too small to benefit from dynamic pricing.

Response

Any park can benefit from dynamic pricing! From the largest tourist attraction to the smallest regional park, every asset experiences intra-week variability and is affected by weather. Many attractions already employ tiered pricing strategies for weekdays and weekends. However, these strategies insufficiently capture the complexities of market demand across the operating week.

Myth

The demographics of my market aren’t conducive to selling many tickets through ecommerce.

Response

Regardless of the demographic, every customer is looking for value. Dynamic pricing provides value to consumers while increasing revenue for the attraction.  In addition, we provide an easy-to-use, interactive calendar that simplifies the purchase and learning process.

Myth

Lowering prices will decrease my revenue.

Response

Lowering prices can open your attraction to new market segments that are unwilling or unable to purchase tickets at your current price. Lower prices also increase attendance, generating additional in-park spending.  At the same time, a dynamic pricing model allows managers to change prices in a specified range, providing tremendous flexibility for reaching new customers and learning about your market.

Myth

Implementing dynamic pricing will reduce my percap.

Response

While higher ticket prices generate higher percaps, percap alone is an inadequate measure of performance. Dynamic pricing is designed to learn how the market thinks about prices to increase profits, not percaps.

Myth

Dynamic pricing services are too expensive.
