Bodies Exhibit Brings Profits to KC's Union Station

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Kansas City's Union Station could finish the year with a balanced budget thanks to the profitable ``Bodies Revealed'' exhibit.

The exhibit could bring a profit of about 1 million dollars, despite falling well short of attendance projections.

Sales are near 170,000 tickets with two weeks left. That's far below the 250,000 that Union Station officials projected.

Station officials will extend hours in the final weeks if demand increases. The exhibit closes on Labor Day.

The venue said high gasoline prices could be depressing the tourism market, and that there's oversaturation in the market with the traveling body shows stopping in St. Louis, Branson and Wichita.
