Some Cedar Fair 4th Quarter Results

Cedar Fair Entertainment Company has announced some limited 4th quarter 2008 and full year results though a press release.

The company says that total 2008 attendance at all 18 of its properties was 22.7 million, up 3% from 2007.

The company also said that 4th quarter attendance was up 8% due to the Halloween events and a favorable calendar (basically an extra weekend because of when Halloween fell). In park percaps were down 1%.

These are positive news items, but why put out a press release with no hard numbers only some attendance figures? We'll get the full numbers in a month or so.
