For the year, net revenues increased 1.4% to $510.0 million on a 1% increase in out-of-park revenues, including resort hotels, a 3% increase in average in-park guest per capita spending, and a 1% decrease in combined attendance.
Read the press release from Cedar Fair.

Or guests that weren't just dropped off by their parents with a ten dollar bill.

On a seriouse note, I would guess a lot of that increase of in-park spending has to do with Dragster merchandise. It was kick a@@ stuff, and I always saw guests floating aroudn the Park wearing some kind of it.

No, I'm sure it was the fact that everything cost about 3% more.

No, I think it had to do with the addition of the DDR Extreme machines...:)

Being witness of both Cedar Point and Knott's Berry Farm, I can highly understand why their percentage went up. Everything at those two parks were perfect. Each provided top of the line thrill rides as well as a great atmosphere that welcomed you. As I also went to Great America and Magic Mountain this year, I was highly disappointed with the service (especially because most rides at MM ran with only 1 train causing lines to reach 4 hours (X)) Great America wasn't as bad as MM however I was still disappointed with the lack of cleanliness and how unpleasant the guests were. NO WONDER WHY SIX FLAGS INC. LOST PERCENTS!

I hate to lose my percents. I can never remember where I leave the damn things.
