Overall attendance at DinoFun World is characterized in figure 2. The number of moves park-goers make is charted for each minute of the day along a horizontal time axis. We can learn a couple of things from this plot: (1) the Scott Jones show was held from 10 to 11 during all mornings and from 3 to 4 in the afternoons of Friday and Saturday. We can see this from the dip in movements (orange lines are average number of moves during one hour) during this time, and the spikes immediately at the end of the show (when a lot of people move out of the area). The second show on Sunday was cancelled: the dip in movements is missing on Sunday afternoon. This is also visible in figure 2, showing check-ins by area: people check into the Grinosaurus Stage, where the Scott Jones show is hosted, before 10 am for all days but before 3 pm only on Friday and Saturday. (2) there is a spike in movements on Sunday at around 2:30 pm - judging from the movement pattern these are people on their way to the Scott Jones show who get turned away (because there are no check-ins to the Grinosaurus Stage), see also figure 3.
