Theme Park In China Offers Discounts To Women In Miniskirts
Measure that Skirt for Half-Price Admission
A theme park in China is trying a unique promotion to attract business of both sexes.
The park, known as Guilin Merryland, gives women wearing skirts shorter than 38 centimeters half-off the admission price, reports Shanghai Daily.
The park began the “We Love Miniskirts” campaign in an effort to encourage women to show off their beauty.
The campaign, an annual summer event, has been a huge success since it started in 2007. Attendance, by both sexes, sore during this campaign.
“The stipulation aims to encourage female visitors to showcase their beauty in summer,” Li Wenxing, deputy manager of the park, told Shanghai Daily.
The discounted price of 55 yuan, roughly 9 US dollars, is only available to women in miniskirts. Women in shorts or dresses must pay full price.
Female staff members measure the skirt with a ruler to ensure it is short enough.
Locals feel this practice encourages women to behave erotically believing it encourages “erotic” behavior and vulgarity.
The resort, which opened in December 2005, covers an area of 400 hectares and boasts seven theme areas including the Wild West and Pirate Village.
