    When does it start?
    With 'decent' showbags costing around $20-$25 each these days, it doesn't suprise me at all that a family could spend 2k. Especially if you buy lunch and products available at stalls. I could do it by myself easily lol.

    how much do the rides normally cost?

    We are going with our 8 year old and 2 year old...was thinking of buying some of the ticket to rides passes....can you use the ride passes on SHow Bags ...or just on rides?

    I know DD will be free...I am a concession, DH a normal adult and DS 8.

    We're taking 2.5 y.o DS. Just for the animals and the fireworks, the boy is obsessed with fireworks. I saw on the website that there are performances too, like Elmo and stuff like that. So we might try to catch one of those. It's possible to do it on the relative cheap. I don't buy showbags, 1 or 2 rides (not this year, I'm UTD ), we go early or late so we don't have to eat there apart from maybe an icecream or something. But i think there's plenty to entertain a toddler there, for sure.
