Hong Kong Refuses to Reveal Disneyland Attendance Stats

23 May

According to EarthTimes.org, the Hong Kong government won’t release attendance figures for Hong Kong Disneyland.

The Hong Kong government Wednesday refused to release attendance figures for the territory’s Disneyland theme park amid suspicions that the 3.5 billion US dollar venture is struggling to attract visitors. The park, which opened in September 2005, has not released any attendance figures for eight months since it admitted it had fallen around 500,000 visitors short of its first-year target of 5.6 million.

Combine this with the fact that they’re apparently desperate enough for Guests to offer free Annual Passes for anyone born in 1997, and I think you’ve got a picture of a park in trouble. But let’s not forget, Euro Disney wasn’t exactly an instant hit either, and these days it’s doing quite well.
