I've complained before, and no doubt I will again but I really don't understand the business model of charging kids separately to get into specific attractions. I know I can go and see a castle as Historic Scotland recognizes a family as being a parent with kids but here are just a few examples of places that charge entrance per child: Glasgow Science Centre, Blair Drummond Safari Park and the Scottish Owl Centre. My kids have expressed an interest in going to all of these and they are all off school at the moment but here's the thing. Whether you have one kid or five you still only have the same two incomes to pay for entertainment, your mortgage and everything else. In fact your mortgage is likely to be significantly bigger because more kids need more rooms. So what makes them think we have more disposable income for entertainment? I can see the rationale behind thinking I shouldn't be subsidized but the thing is that I simply cannot afford these prices for a single day's entertainment. I therefore do not go so I lose out, and my kids also lose out but they do too. If there was a family ticket I could use, I would pay and once inside I'd potentially buy things, perhaps coffees, perhaps lunches. I might buy the kids a toy on the way out so they would end up getting money out of me. This way we lose out and they do too. It seems crazy to me.
