Save $200!

Price of a Non-Stop Fun Pass at the Nebraska State Fair through August 10: $65

Price of a Fun Pass after August 10: $75

Supposed value of a Fun Pass: $272

Price of a regular admission to Worlds of Fun in Kansas City: $37.95

Watching the State Fair try to hoodwink people into thinking that the Fun Pass is anything but a gigantic ripoff: Priceless.

Hilarious, thanks for the chuckle this morning. I saw that in the paper yesterday and my response was about the same. “$65.00?!!!?”

I don’t remember the state fair website being so ugly.  Is this a new thing?

@jwiltshire: I’m fairly certain that’s the same design they used last year. It’s ... not my favorite.

I should really research these things before I reply. Anyway, the State Fair website apparently went live on August 10, 2005.

I could swear they had a better design before, but maybe I’m thinking of some other fair.  I’ve seen Liquid Code Design’s work in the past, and, umm, never been too impressed.

We seem to have a lot of sub-par web design companies here in Lincoln. Maybe we should start our own!
