Financial report summary

  • The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely impacted our business and is expected to continue to adversely impact our business, as well as intensify certain risks we face. The ultimate extent to which COVID-19 and measures taken in response will impact our business, including our results of operations and financial condition, cannot be reasonably predicted due to the ongoing development and fluidity of the pandemic and its effects.
  • The amount of our indebtedness could adversely affect our ability to raise additional capital to fund our operations, limit our ability to react to changes in the economy or our industry and prevent us from fulfilling our obligations under our debt agreements.
  • Our debt agreements contain restrictions that could limit our flexibility in investing in our business, including the ability to pay partnership distributions.
  • Variable rate indebtedness could subject us to the risk of higher interest rates, which could cause our future debt service obligations to increase.
  • Our growth strategy, including our COVID-19 recovery strategy, may not achieve the anticipated results.
  • We compete for discretionary spending and discretionary free time with many other entertainment alternatives and are subject to factors that generally affect the recreation and leisure industry, including general economic conditions.
  • The operating season at most of our parks is of limited duration, which can magnify the impact of adverse conditions or events occurring within that operating season.
  • The high fixed cost structure of amusement park operations can result in significantly lower margins if revenues do not meet expectations.
  • Bad or extreme weather conditions can adversely impact attendance at our parks, which in turn would reduce our revenues.
  • Our insurance coverage may not be adequate to cover all possible losses that we could suffer, and our insurance costs may increase.
  • Unanticipated construction delays in completing capital improvement projects in our parks and resort facilities, significant ride downtime, or other unplanned park closures could adversely affect our revenues.
  • There is a risk of accidents or other incidents occurring at amusement and water parks, which may reduce attendance and negatively impact our revenues.
  • Increased costs of labor and employee health and welfare benefits may impact our results of operations.
  • Our business depends on our ability to meet our workforce needs.
  • Cyber-security risks and the failure to maintain the integrity of internal or customer data could result in damages to our reputation and/or subject us to costs, fines or lawsuits.
  • Our operations, our workforce and our ownership of property subject us to various laws and regulatory compliance, which may create uncertainty regarding future expenditures and liabilities.
  • Our tax treatment is dependent on our status as a partnership for federal income tax purposes. If the tax laws were to treat us as a corporation or we become subject to a material amount of entity-level taxation, it may substantially reduce our available cash.
  • Instability in general economic conditions could impact our business, including our results of operations and financial condition.
  • Other factors, including local events, natural disasters, pandemics and terrorist activities, or threats of these events, could adversely impact park attendance and our revenues.
Management Discussion
  • Attendance is defined as the number of guest visits to our amusement parks and separately gated outdoor water parks.
  • In-park per capita spending is calculated as revenues generated within our amusement parks and separately gated outdoor water parks along with related tolls and parking revenues (in-park revenues), divided by total attendance.
  • Out-of-park revenues are defined as revenues from resort, marina, sponsorship, online transaction fees charged to customers and all other out-of-park operations.
