Children are also attracted to a bounce house. Much cheaper than a trolley!


Trolley tickets were $3 for kids, $5 for adults as I recall. It was quite popular with the kids, and not much more than a short jump in a bounce house.

Kids like things that move. They like being able to do stuff at museums. Plenty of kids actually like museums, as long as there is something interesting to do. The more static and un-engaging you make your museum, the fewer young folks will be interested, and the sooner your operation will die.

I don’t think running a money-losing trolley is how to keep your operation from dying either.

It lost money, was not historic to the area, and was not operated in a historic way. I fail to see the loss.
