        There was a private event and the park closed at 6pm on August 14th…

    My theory is your US schools are back and UK guests which would usually see high figures for the next 2 weeks or so are not there due to international travel restrictions.

    oh the 6pm closing makes the most sense for the low crowds that day.
    Nice tradeoff though
