how has the themed attraction industry performed this year?
We’ve seen healthy growth this year, with the major theme park operators posting 5.4 percent growth overall, and the top 25 theme parks growing at a similar rate of 4.3 percent. This is exceptional performance, particularly in view of the modest growth of major North American and European markets.
Where has the growth occurred?
Consistent with recent years, Asia has led the pack at 7.5 percent growth with the Americas growing in the 3 to 4 percent range. The Middle East is starting to pick up again with some major projects such as Warner Bros. Abu Dhabi underway. Europe’s overall growth has remained flat again, however there has been some light at the end of the tunnel with some strong performance in the U.K., Germany, and Denmark. Southern Europe remains under the burden of challenged  economies.
how about Water parks and Museums, how did they do?
Surprisingly well. Water parks grewat over 9 percent globally with some good numbers coming out of Asia, and increasingly Latin America with Beach Park in Brazil up 14 percent and in the top 20 water parks globally.
Museums had a strong year as well up over 7 percent from last year. The U.K. again performed well with a number of museums up 15 to 20 percent. The Asian museums were notably up also.
