Price-gouging at Hogwarts

The NY Times recently posted an article about what they describe as the "unexpected, turbocharged success of the $265 million Potter playland" (i.e., Universal's Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park in Florida). The article and its accompanying photographs make the park look pretty cool... but I can't help but think about the blogger FoodJunk's recent reviews of two Harry Potter-themed foodstuffs: Pink Coconut Ice and Pumpkin Juice. Neither one of 'em sounded enticing, and their ludicrously high prices left me feeling rather depressed about the park as a whole.
