Attendance and Season Passes Does a seasons pass holder count as one person or does it count for every time you enter the park. When a park shows it figures and it shows 900,000 does a person who had a pass and came 20 times only count as one credit.

Yes, it counts every time a season pass comes through. Parks plan their budgets based on how many people they are expecting. So if they are expecting 15,000 people, you are more likely to see every ride and stand open whereas if they are expecting 3,000 on a rainy day, they will probably not open everything. So they have to count the season pass holders in with those who pay.

For daily attendance expectations, of course each body is counted, but as for a yearly total, it's hard to say.

I don't know this for a fact or anything, but I think yearly totals include all people walking through the gate, including season pass holders.
I think that's how SFWOA achieved the numbers they did. Most of the people we talked there said they had season passes. (which then, totalled about 1 1/2 admissions making it very economical for a local family.)
