Wichita has always been a decent draw in that league -- back when it first re-started in the 90s, the "holy trinity" of the CHL was OKC, Tulsa, and Wichita -- the three cities whose rivalry would always draw. It doesn't hurt that they're in 2nd place in the league right now and in theory could win the regular-season title. Even with that, these season's numbers are actually off by nearly 14% from last season's.
Missouri is relatively new, in a smaller new arena specifically built for hockey in the KC suburbs, so they've still got a little of that "new team smell", would be my take, even though they're a basically mid-table team on the ice this year.
