What shopping center charges for parking? Especially in SoCal? Maybe in downtown LA. But most shopping centers have free parking. That's kind of the point.

^The Grove, Americana, Gardenwalk, Paseo Colorado (in Pasadena). Just off the top of my head. Citywalk and Downtown Disney, depending on how you want to define "Shopping Center". But since we're talking about Knott's Marketplace, those are fair comparisons.

^ Man, I am so glad we've got what we've got here,
i.e. free parking everywhere there's a shopping mall.

Except downtown malls. Forget that, I mean duh. Easy money.

Holy cow! I don't even like downtown parking meters. I would never, ever pay to shop. How does the public tolerate it? How does that even make sense?

Well, most are free for 1 hour, and while specific policies vary, there usually is validation available for 3-4 hours. And they get away with it because for the most part, public parking in those area is generally very hard to come by.

So...just like knotts. Why would knotts do the opposite of the industry trends? They left millions on the table being late launching fastlane, which was one of the reasons The mass exodus of the “old guard” at cedar fair. Don’t think they’re going to make that mistake again.

Any free public parking by knotts is subject to being towed since it’s all private property in the area.

Man, I'm glad I live in a small town. We don't even have parking meters downtown. We used to, but they were killing downtown because people avoided the area like the plague, so they were removed. Now our downtown area is booming. I guess I just don't understand big city life. I live less an hour from Seattle, but aside from driving through on I-5, I rarely if ever actually go there. I also lived in SoCal while in college and don't remember ever paying for parking, aside from downtown LA of course.

Are people really upset they can't circumvent paying for amusement park parking?

^ Apparently it's quite a heated discussion topic on some of the local SoCal Facebook fan pages. It quite amusing to read through the comments and see how personally some people are taking the changes.
