Record revenue summer for Point Mallard

DECATUR, AL (WAFF) - Even though the area had a record rainfall this summer, thousands of people didn't let the bad weather dampen their enthusiasm for Point Mallard.

Officials with the water park said the park had its highest gross revenue and second-highest attendance as more than 173,300 visitors passed through its gates - 30,000 more visitors than last year.

Officials attribute the increases to new attractions, including the Lazy River, at the 43-year-old park.
