Theme parks blame ‘excessive climate’ for attendance drops and monetary loses

Theme parks throughout the nation have endured an onslaught of untamed climate this yr starting from unprecedented rainfall and extreme warmth warnings to Canadian wildfires and California hurricanes which have led to decrease attendance and lowered income.

The homeowners of Knott’s Berry Farm, Six Flags Magic Mountain and SeaWorld San Diego are blaming “excessive,” “difficult” and “opposed” climate for his or her most up-to-date attendance and income woes.

Cedar Truthful, the father or mother firm of Knott’s Berry Farm, blamed unprecedented rainfall in California, wildfires in Canada and excessive temperatures on the East Coast for a decline in attendance and season cross gross sales in the latest quarter.

Park closures and lowered crowds attributable to the California rains contributed to a 17% drop in attendance at Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park and California’s Nice America in Santa Clara throughout Cedar Truthful’s second quarter.

California’s heavy rains had been additionally blamed for a 9% lower in 2023 season cross gross sales — largely at Knott’s and Nice America. California’s “monsoon-like situations” within the firm’s first quarter resulted in decrease season cross gross sales within the second quarter that impacted general attendance.

Impacts from North America’s disruptive climate patterns weren’t remoted to Cedar Truthful’s California parks.

Air high quality points attributable to Canadian wildfire smoke harm attendance at Canada’s Wonderland within the Toronto space. Unprecedented rainfall and excessive temperatures plagued Cedar Truthful parks on the East Coast.

Cedar Truthful estimates that prime temperatures, heavy rains and wildfire smoke accounted for 300,000 fewer guests within the quarter.
