We are prepping for trip #10 of the year. Weve only hit one truly crazy busy day. Should hit 15 trips before the end of the year, probably more. Since we only live an hour and a half away, its just a day trip for us. The kids are older now and we are really get our use out of the passes.

Do you guys think Time Traveler was a bust for SDC for attendance draw? Everytime I go the ride seems to draw a decent crowd even on the slower days.


I believe the first year it opened (last year) was a record attendance for the park.  So I am sure Time Traveler had a little something to do with it.  I have a feeling this year is a little down from going to the park and seeing attendance totals.  It just seems they have got a lot of rain this year on days such as the weekends that they would have gotten good attendance.  I do believe the new Harvest Festival and Pumpkin Nights is going to be a big attendance draw and make up for any lost attendance.  Anything new at SDC especially a new ride is going to draw a decent crowd for awhile, and TT falls into that category.  Is Time Traveler a bust......Time will tell!

Marine Dictionary:
Boat:  Noun.  A hole in the water into which the owner pours money.  The best two days of boat ownership are the day the owner buys it and the day the owner sells it.


I say these things as a guy who grew around boats and *really* wished he had time for them now.  Were I closer to the lake, I'd have one (not counting the ancient 12' V-bottom rowboat currently sitting next to my shop:  anybody want to acquire a 1957 7.5 hp Evinrude?).  I very much enjoy boating, but I just cannot indulge myself.

That said, it wouldn't take me away from the City.

And I would rather pay to go to SDC than be paid to go to Six Flags.   ;D

What are we thinking the crowds are gonna be like this weekend, numbers wise? Just saw SDC announced extended hours thru the weekend. https://www.facebook.com/events/918404168497598/

I might go. Was thinking Fri/Sat is an obvious no as naturally that would be their busiest days/nights. So I was thinking Sun/Mon maybe? Though I'm aware last Saturday was pretty nice with a manageable crowd but that could have been due to the threat of rain keeping crowds away.

It is labor day weekend,  with school in session, I would think Friday and Monday would both be low traffic days...  leaves with flip of the coin on saturday and sunday....     

IMHO  saturday will be the busiest day...  Sunday will be above average even with extended hours, but people start going home sunday night/evening.

Have a great trip!!

We've done Sun/Mon on Labor Day before, and Monday, especially, was a real joy.  Weather will be a factor.

Woof, these numbers are rough. Hope that things are about to take off for pumpkin season for the park's sake.

They seriously need some days with 15-20,000 guests to pump their numbers back up.

Yes, these numbers look poor, over the weekend they "predicted" 4-5,000 more than what showed up..    Seems like there have been a lot of low attendence days this year.  NOT all weather related...  I agree, we need to see some huge days in the next 4 months...

I know that our family is waiting until Pumpkin Nights to start until we go back. We already have 3 trips planned. I know of some other families that are holding off on trips until Pumpkin Nights too.

I'll say it again, put in some Dancing Waters fountains, do a brief show every hour to Dueling Banjos......

And a flat.
