As soon as I write this, someone will counter, "Oh, they all do that." Still, I don't think it is right. My family and I enjoyed visiting the Utah State Fair — all the animals, displays and attractions. My three young kids especially loved the "little hands on the farm." However, when they asked if they could ride a ride and we saw the ride was $3, we had to say "no." Didn't we already pay $6 per adult to get in? Plus parking? But $3 for a two-minute ride? Wish I made that kind of money. According to my math, that's $90 per hour worth of entertainment.
