When my kids were young, took them to Chuck E Cheese. They don’t charge admission...
I had “amish” kids coming up to me...big white guy...panhandling me for tokens? Very “urban” in the place.
Nearby, a place that charged admission, and also had pizza. Let’s just say that the admission of a few bucks, changed the demographic etc dramatically.

Same thing happened years go to free museums and libraries when some judge decided vagrants had as much right to use them as working people.
The museums and other places started charging small fees to enter, so the vagrants all piled in on the libraries.
Now the bums are everywhere in the libraries fouling up the place. One library had to close due to BED BUGS.
That’s why i don’t mind paying obnoxious parking fees here at MA beaches...
