This could be caused by Behemoth, the first attraction to be installed with Cedar Fair in the office.
BTW, Robert - I think Behemoth is a fair contender for the TPI Theme Park Awards as Best New Attraction.
I've been going to Busch Gardens Africa, and the crowds are steady but not overwhelming - at least compared to crowds at the Orlando parks.
Of course, it's still pretty early in the season and it will be interesting to see how the rest of the summer goes.
Visit #2 was more normal. I didn't sense a lower attendence. It was a Saturday once again.
Side comment - couldn't they paint up a few things and change some roofing on a few buildings? It's look a bit not-so-new.
