We never waited more than 20 minutes.  All of those rides were in the front on the coasters (except FITH)

Well they had 400 last year on NYD and 1000 on NYE.  Id say it was a success.  They basically had a skeleton crew at the park for guest services and then everyone else was busy starting off season work.  They were stripping things and packing up everything in Rib House today.  Id say its gone in the next few weeks.

Be interetsing to know if the PTB considered it a success.!!  They had some good groups out there on NYE for only 4000 people..

Rib house,  oh yea, it will be gone in the next week or so if weather holds.  LOL. 

It is probably in the way now, as far as progress goes..

Just like you, I can only get the daily attendance and not the total attendance numbers

Yep.  Park just sent out a presser with the same figures
And therein lies the biggest reason the park is investing so heavily in infrastructure upgrades

I have to wonder how many of those are unique visitors and not people who are counted multiple times for multiple visits.
