I’ll admit I’m surprised by that too; surely they’d take actual data if Merlin provided it?I am surprised TEA didn’t restate some of the 2019 figures for UK Merlin parks since Merlin actually released these earlier in the year.
The 2019 TEA report Alton Towers figure is 2.1 million, whereas the Merlin released info is more like 2.5 million.
Likewise the 2020 figure is closer to 1million on the Merlin data versus 670k on the TEA report.
I don’t really know, but I assumed that the metric used was fairly similar. I assumed it was the number of unique guests who visited each year, but I could be wrong and it could be the number of visits.Lots of variables.
Is it just bodies through the gate. How do they count multi day trips. Are annual pass visits counted. All that kind of stuff. Are we counting sales or turnstiles etc. #RandomMumbles
I'm led to believe that the TEA report is an educated estimate rather than a concrete figure.No way did Thorpe came within 100k visitors of Towers. These figures aren't accurate
