SPRINGDALE, Utah (AP) — U.S. officials say they're expecting record numbers of visitors to southern Utah's Zion National Park this holiday weekend that could have people waiting more than 45 minutes to enter the park and board shuttles.

The National Park Service says Memorial Day weekend is their busiest of the year at Zion.

Officials say 75,000 people visited the park during the holiday last year and at one point lines for park shuttles were two hours long.

Park officials say they're extending the hours of park facilities and adding staff but visitors should expect crowds and long waits.
