Before the paywall went up, I saw something about Zimmerman being confident that Fury and the other additions would push Carowinds past the 3 million mark for attendance if that means anything.
[EDIT] Nvm, usc posted it.
What I can gather from this:
-Carowinds attendance is well beyond the 2 million mark
-They’ve gone over the $50 million budget they originally stated
-Cedar Fair compares Carowinds to Kings Island in terms of potential, and believes they can get Carowinds to the 3 million mark
-A hotel of SpringHill Suites’ size typically costs from $20 million to $30 million, and SHS at Carowinds is on the lower end.
-They’ve seen more attendance from the outer markets such as the Triangle (Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill), Augusta and even Charleston, and they’re looking to tap into that overnight market with the new hotel.
