Over 85,000 people visited Nocturnal Wonderland this year with an average daily attendance of just under 30,000.
Nearly 200 people were taken into custody, according to San Bernardino County sheriff’s Capt. Stephen Dorsey. 76 people were arrested Friday and 123 were arrested Saturday, and the majority of those were for people trying to sneak in.
