SeaWorld stock was on the move Tuesday following the release of an preliminary attendance update for the quarter ending Sept. 30.
According to the SeaWorld Entertainment (NYSE:SEAS) preliminary results, the company saw attendance for the most recent quarter increase by 10% when compared to the third quarter of 2017. This had it serving an additional 700,000 guests during the quarter.

SeaWorld stock may also be getting a boost from the company’s preliminary year-to-date attendance and revenue results. The entertainment company says that attendance so far for 2018 is up 1.4 million, or 9%.
When it comes to preliminary year-to-date revenue, SeaWorld says that it is up about $90 million when compared to the same period from last year. This also represents a 9% increase from the previous first three quarter of 2017.
