It's something to do folks. It wasn't there before and now it is. It was a run down hotel before so you're not losing out on something you use to have. So if you don't like it, don't go. The guy spent money building it out and time will tell if he'll make it back. But it's better than having a dilapidated, condemned building there.

I think that's the point.
If you go there to ride the rides then you think of it as an amusement park, so the cost of admission and the cost of the rides (especially with an All Day Pass) isn't too bad.
If you're going there just to check out this updated pier... then don't bother. Of course it will seem expensive.

Had a friend go down last weekend. There is no comparison yet. Galveston isn't even completed and the food is .. meh!

What a Galveston vacation may cost you

Broken down...yikes.

I'd rather just save and go to Padre and Destin. Sure it's closer but not worth it IMO.

I've never been thrilled about Galveston anyway. If the water was just borderline blue. I have more pleasure looking at the nasty green of the Riverwalk.
