No one in this industry can see into the future, but those are some pretty conservative numbers.

My feelings exactly. Or, as someone famous around here once said, "under-promise and over-deliver". ;)

Does anybody know what attendance was like under Six Flags? 600,000 for the first year seems pretty ambitious to me.

Split over 103 days, you're looking at an average of under 6000 per day. Attendance numbers would include season pass revisits and school functions; so, doesn't seem overly ambitious. Fingers crossed for good weather that summer

While I can't vouch for accuracy as this video sites no sources, it appears as though attendance in the final year of Kentucky Kingdom was around 540,000. Very interesting video. The numbers seem realistic to me.

600000 seems about inline for starters. I'm not able to find an exact number, but my guess is 600000 is inline with a park such as Michigan's Adventure, and properly run, this park would be similar in size and stature. However, it also is closer to major cities and may get a bit more "day trip" attendance versus Michigan Adventure, which really is a "camping destination" park.
