Summer attendance check: What are you seeing?
Written by Robert Niles
I'd love to hear from Theme Park Insider readers... What you are seeing in terms of theme park attendance so far this season? Larger crowds, or smaller ones? Longer lines, or shorter?Tweet
Cedar Fair CEO Dick Kinzel said yesterday that attendance at Cedar Point and other northern theme parks in the chain has been "soft." (Which, usually means "down.") Granted, Cedar Point didn't debut a coaster this year, and the park relies on regional drive-in traffic, while gas prices are above $4 a gallon.
How is the situation at the parks you have visited so far this season? Tell us in the comments.
