Water Park news

I asked how the water park was doing. I didn’t get any hard and fast attendance numbers in return, but it’s clear the park hasn’t reached the magic 1,100 daily attendance. Here’s what I got:

Suffice it to say that an unseasonable cool July is not what any Waterpark business would want, but you take nature as it is handed to you. With that said, we are still happy with how the park is performing.

All of our numbers are trending better than the feasibility study, with the exception of average daily attendance due to the unseasonably cool weather. Even with these weather patterns, we are on target to cover all of our costs without any General Fund assistance. Approximately 50,000 folks have visited the Water Park to date.

I also got a promotion request:

We will be open weekends through September 20th.  There are two more Family Fun Nights 8/7 and 8/21 (4-8pm), where admission is only $6, free lazy river tubes, and $1hot dogs. We had over 1,000 folks come to the last one.

    Well, they sold out of their season passes. I’ve taken my 3-year-old there three times thus far and it’s always been crowded (of course, it was always on a sunny day).

    What I can’t understand is why wasn’t this built as a covered, all-season facility?

    For public swimming outside of summer one has to go all the way to the Plunge in Hayward or face the madness at the Silliman Center. What better activity on a cold, rainy day when playground equipment is unusable than a swim in a heated pool? I spent some time living in intemperate Ireland and nowhere was more popular than the local public . . . of course, indoor . . . pool.
