friday-    19,500....


CORRECTION!!!   Thursday was a little over 19,000.     

God Bless those Spring Breakers, I have been at the park during Christmas with 25,000 and it was gridlock, almost unbearable.  At Christmas there are more open than the spring.  With these numbers is it not time for SDC to act like they are as busy as they are?  Maybe its time to open the park fully with these kinds of crowds, the money is there.     The crowds last year were also bumper crop, is it not appropriate and prudent to give these paying folks at least the entertainment of standard season when the numbers are this high ?  Open the shops and restaurants.  Have mercy on the adults.

So what days of the week are usually not as crowded? :-\

Everyone will tell you that Saturday is the WORST day!!,  Sunday not so bad..

BUT!!!!   That doesnt always hold true.......

Today,  Sat the 23rd...  Only 11,300..  Wow.!!

I am NC ARK and we had rain today.  I wonder how it was there?

What were summer days averaging last year Sandunerider?  Do you remember?
Seems like 20+ at Christmas with any decent weather at all (drastically effected by cold weather) but I didn't watch the summer months.  I would love to keep track and watch the patterns.  EZ spreadsheet with weather included so you can see its effect.

This was also Spring Break Week in the area and I am sure that contributed to the crowds.

It's rained here most of the day as well.  I'm sure that's why the numbers were down.  Actually, for it being a rainy day, 11,300 is still a pretty big number.
This is a stick up!  Get it? Stick.... Nevermind, it's a train robbery.  I want everyone to get your hands up and act scared.

It didnít start raining today until just before 3 pm.  Time Traveler went from a 100 minute wait to a walkon pretty quick.  The kids rode it 5 times in about 30 minutes at around 4:30.  All the big rides except for Powder Keg stayed open.

 @ Shave or other Admins...

We have several comments on the 2018 thread, that actually should be on the 2019 thread.   One of you want to move them and clean that up..   LOL.      thanks,

I'm confused. The 2018 thread is about discussing Branson's overall 2018 attendance numbers; this one is specifically about SDC's daily attendance in 2019... Aren't those two separate topics?

We were there for a few hours around noon. No lines for anything. Rode TT with zero wait.

Maybe a thread about 2019 Branson Attendance should be started. If not already. It isnít 2018 anymore.
