I'm sure the coaster had a minor impact, but the 22% increase comes off of 2017 which is what could be described as an outlier year for SWSD where they had a near 14% drop in attendance from 2016 according to TEA/AECOM. AECOM isn't really anything to go off of since they're an estimate compared to the real numbers that parks rarely release, but I highly doubt a single year and a single coaster could be the primary influence of an over 800,000 person attendance increase.

If you want to compare 2016 to 2018 it comes off as a more stable growth trend, where there's only an overall attendance increase of about 200,000. This matches a new attraction, new seasonal events, and new shows that the park has introduced over the past two years to provide a different experience.
