Methinks you might find an argument on the size from TRF. Their 2012 attendance, if you include School Days, was over 600,000 for the season, with nearly 60,000 attending the closing day.

My friend Merlin the Elder is correct.  I do remember seeing a total attendance figure for TRF at 606,000 for 2012. 

An interesting FYI:  The owner of TFR (Referred to as King George/I can't remember his last name) started the MN Ren Faire.  He ran it for 3-4 years, sold the operation and moved to Texas.  He then started TRF.
