Shares - is it worth buying the extra 80?

The possibility has arisen to buy the extra shares I need to stay in the Shareholders Club in the future. As far as I can see, I don't need to do this right now as I have about 18 months left to run under current membership. Also, the shares are still quite high in price so worth holding off the purchase for now.

But question is, will it be worth it in 18 months time? . Anyone have a crystal ball .

I'm guessing if they get more 'serious' investors involved it could go one of two ways;

1) Shareholders perks may become more limited but perhaps more beneficial/exclusive

2) Shareholders perks may decrease as investors become more business orientated - some may not even visit the park but see it purely as a business venture (can only see this happening if the shares increase in price and begin to pay a dividend though)

3) The rules for membership may continue to climb and climb - moveable goalposts?

Anyone considering buying the extra shares too?

I guess you'd have to visit a fair amount to make it worthwhile if you were looking at it from the point of view of discounts/perks..... But if they look like they may become a better business investment or the perks become more exclusive, then that is a different matter. For us, I need to also consider what if we decide we aren't going to visit again after November for a long while, then I guess I have my answer....

Interested to hear other people's views on where they think the SH club will go, how the membership will go (if at all?).

ETA - We have decided to keep our 20 shares even if we don't increase our shareholding for nostalgia/our children owning a speck of dust in the park!
