Clearly not the same situation, but I can't help but draw some sort of parallel between this and the CP/GL scenario. In other words, how much of this 600K expected atendance would be "new customers" and how many would be drawing from the HW turnstile figures? Just hoping it proves to be more of the former and less of the latter....

I think the biggest difference in business will likely come in terms of group sales and catering. That seemed to be the biggest win for HW when KK closed.
