I know a few people wanted an update on the Water Park’s first season.
I don’t have specific stats – those will be released next month – but the city said it was profitable even though average daily attendance didn’t reach 1,100.
Here’s the explanation:
The attendance ended up at 70,000. 1,100/day was not a magic break even number. It was what the studies projected the attendance to be based on the facility having maximum occupancy of 1,500 and the geographic region. Once we were up and running, we determined that the maximum occupancy for safety was 1,250.
