There is access and it has a fee. There is a cost in providing the access.

If I were a US taxpayer I'd be interested to know whether Delaware North's profit margin is capped and/or how much profit it makes from operating the KSCVC. But, being a private Delaware LLC with multiple business interests I'm sure this is suitably obfuscated.
Interestingly, one of their other ventures is as sole hospitality provider to the English national soccer stadium at Wembley, where the prices speak for themselves.

It's a shame they have introduced a parking fee but it's still a lot cheaper than the theme parks, but I can understand why.
It's another revenue stream! If you buy an annual pass you don't pay the parking fee...
