I still wonder what is that little grate thing is that looks like a CPU's cooling unit/fins by the wheels of the cars? It has a wire attatched to it so is this a transmitter of some kind?

So... 3400 x 2 = 6800 total riders. Divided by the 10 hours it was operational for = 680 per hour average. Allowing for the 200 or so behind us at queue close and rounded up to allow for miscalculations = 700 per hour.
Didn't John Wardley famously say in a documentary that he only deals with ride manufacturers that can deliver 1000+?
