Polk County success story
Wednesday, July 26, 2006
Cypress Gardens Adventure Park in Polk County says it seeing a major jump in attendance, and the park believes a water park it opened late last summer is the reason.
Cypress Gardens has made it past the initial enthusiasm of its reopening about 18 months ago, and park attendance is up by 20 percent over the same time last year.
Local tourism officials say their research shows the tens of millions the park has spent on thrill rides and the water park, called Splash Island, have been a good investment and should continue to be so in the future. The park is thinking about expanding the water park, but it has set a date for that yet.
Cypress Gardens says it had more than 1.5 million visitors last year and it expects to easily exceed that this year.
