We went this morning and it was pretty busy trying to get in, lots and lots of school groups.  There were a lot of kids but we still managed to get most rides in pretty much walk on.  FITH had a little bit of a wait because they were only running 2 trains.  WF was starting to back up because they were only running 1 train.  The barn swing was  backed up too because they only had 1 side going.  We rode TT on the way out and it was about a 15-20 minute wait.  We left about 2pm or a little after.

Had almost 5,000 people today...   Lots of kids this time of year, class trips and so on...

We are planning to go to SDC either Wednesday+Thursday or Thursday+Friday of next week.  Thursday+Friday works better for our schedule, but I'm thinking that we might encounter lighter crowds on Wednesday as compared to Friday, especially since Friday is leading into Memorial Day weekend. 

Does anyone have an educated guess as to how the crowds will be next week, especially whether Friday will be significantly more crowded than earlier in the week?

Wed- Thurs will be much lighter crowds next week.. some schools still in session, But with memorial weekend coming up friday will be busier..
Enjoy the visit.

I would tend to agree with you..

If I want a meal or snack, I will buy it. As will many other people 
I dont have any interest in photos,.   
I have my mugs, dont expect me to buy new. There are lots of newcomers buying the new mugs,  Leave us "old guys" alone ;D
I might be open to dinner and show, depending on quality of each and the price of course.

Actually, the crowd was not too bad at all--I have seen MUCH worse.  There were several school bands there and quite a few Moms, but no real crowding. 

The longest lines I saw were for the Lost River, but even those weren't spilling over into the area by the Riverfront Playhouse.

It was hot, and maybe the new ride soaked up part of the crowd.  Dunno, but it was really a pleasant day.

Thats good for you..  I was surprised at the low number.. I kinda expected 12-15,  but lower numbers makse a better day for you.. Grats!!

Today was as crowded as I've seen it this year, but I don't go on weekends (excluding today  ;D), and it was very manageable.  Vincent's shows were great as usual.  I only planned to attend the first one, but Hubs wanted to see it one more time.  The first show was mostly gospel, which might turn a few off, but it was fantastic.  I saw the last one of the day, completely different, and Barbara Fairchild came up on stage from the crowd and sang a couple numbers with her. What's the attendance today, Sand?

about 8500 on sunday,  should have been a good day to visit..

FWIW, each of her shows at SDC will be different sets.   So theoretically you could attend all 12 shows at SDC and they’d be different

I had forgotten that detail.. I think she has done it that way for the few years..  Good for her..!  give the customers something different everytime..

I saw the 11:30 Vincent show, and it was packed out! Seriously, not another person could fit in there, and people kept coming in after the show started. Opera House employees had their hands full today. I left right at 12:30, so not sure about afternoon crowd.  It did seem like there were far fewer kids there this morning than yesterday.

Rhonda Vincent puts on a great show... I would to see one of her concerts....  The show she does at SDC is just a teaser..!!   LOL

Sand, it was a great, but short, visit.  Watched opening ceremonies (they're back to honoring veterans), listened to the Homestead Pickers at the Gazebo, saw Rhonda Vincent at the Opera House, and left.  We planned to stay longer, but something came up (no emergency).  Here's a photo of today.  My guess is attendance was a bit higher than yesterday.

Yes it was, a few more people today..  total about 7500 people..

No way do I believe that! Shows were full, walkways were full, and we waited in a couple of lines to eat.  There were at least 6 different field trips going on based on the kids with matching shirts.  I waited in line at the bathroom.  I left sometime between 3:30 and 4.

 Surprised to hear there was that much traffic..   When i checked last night the "official"  number was actually 5200.  could have been a couple of hundred more people slip in..... but that number should be close..

Hope you had a good visit..
