The hot, humid weather is pays off for the Rockford area's water park.
The past three days almost 16,000 people checked out Magic Waters. Since last summer had such a long hot streak, the water park is comparing this year's attendance numbers to those in 2011. Year-to-date both 2013 and 2011 Magic Waters has seen similar attendance numbers - around 90,000. This week's temperatures have staff prepared for larger crowds and summer safety.
"We have the ticket admissions out in full force and extra lifeguards and staff coming out, to volunteers to help everybody stay hydrated, and making sure everyone is drinking lots of water and putting on sunscreen," says Magic Waters Operations Manager Hope Walker.
