Grand Canyon West Tops 1 Million Visitor Mark in 2015; Tourism Soars at Grand Canyon Skywalk, Other Attractions
A soaring number of visitors to the Grand Canyon Skywalk and other Grand Canyon West tourism attractions has made 2015 a record year for the Grand Canyon Resort Corporation. On Monday, December 21, 2015, the Grand Canyon West venues recorded their recordbreaking 1 millionth visitor for 2015. The milestone was celebrated by treating Jenny and Mike Kim, the recordbreaking visitors, to the full range of experiences available to Grand Canyon West guests.
“This is a very special moment for Grand Canyon West, the Corporation and for all of our employees,” said Hualapai Tribal Council Chairwoman Sherry Counts. “One million visitors represents an increase of more than 120,000 guests in the past year alone. That’s huge – and these attractions will continue to get better in the year ahead. A new visitors center, a new restaurant and other new attractions means more reasons for people to visit in 2016. We want every day and every visit to be memorable for one and all.”
Grand Canyon West, operated by the Grand Canyon Resort Corporation, is owned by the Hualapai Tribe. GCRC oversees operations of Grand Canyon West, Grand Canyon Skywalk, Hualapai River Runners, Hualapai Ranch, Walapai Market and the Hualapai Lodge. The jump to top one million visitors represents an increase of more than 13 percent in the past year.
