The TEA/AECOM attendance estimates are out for 2020. Under normal circumstances, I find their numbers suspect, so I can only imagine where they sit this year. But duh, attendance was down. :)

Six reported attendance was down 79%
Cedar reported attendance down 90%

TEA says the top 25 were down only 67%. It's pretty clear to they are underestimating the impact.

I think last year being down is definately expected. Really hard to get people into a park when you are closed for 1/2 or 3/4 of the season. What I have to wonder is what this year will be like. In my visits, the parks did not feel as crowded as normal, but that's a terrible way to estimate without more data.

I'll look up the official numbers published by OLC for Tokyo Disney as this is a good way to see how TEA changed the numbers.

Maybe, but Six Flags and Cedar Fair don't have any parks in the top 25 - whereas Disney and Universal had 14 of the top 15. Many of their parks would have had regular operations from Jan 1 to mid-March (when most SIX/FUN parks were closed), and had a longer season after reopening midsummer. So it's plausible that the top 25 parks' attendance was off less than the regional, seasonal parks.

I noticed a glaring mistake: Canada's Wonderland is listed at 1 139 000 visitors in 2020, which is impossible: the park never opened in 2020 due to COVID.

Margin of error: infinity percent.

I noticed the text said Cedar Point opened their new "Snake River Expidition" in 2020 as well. That's not true.
