How does TP calculate actual crowds versus expected crowds in the crowd calendar. Yesterday, I was poking around and went back to the crowd calendar for the days we were at Unversal. I wanted to see actual crowds versus what the end result was.
For the Wednesday we were there, the expected crowds were 2, but the actual was listed as a 4. For Thursday, the crowds were predicted to be a 3, but the actual listed is a 4.
Yet, our experience was quite different. Wednesday, crowds were super light. Almost no wait for most rides most of the time we were there. Thursday, however, we had long waits (relatively speaking) probably 3-4 times longer than we had seen on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Furthermore, the actual crowd for IOA was listed as a 3 (compared to US’s 4), and yet we found lines at IOA to be worse than at US.
