MARKET REPORT: NORTH AMERICA


What’s New In North America


Before the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic the amusement industry appeared to be strong, and the numbers confirmed this. But this year’s delayed openings, social distancing requirements, and reduced capacity all present unique challenges to successful operation. Paul Ruben reports


T 6


here are two new amusement parks and at least five new waterparks opening in North America. The


opening of two other amusement parks have been postponed to 2021. There are also dozens of other rides and attractions planned for 2020. According to the Roller Coaster Data Base, there are 205 roller coasters scheduled to open worldwide in 2020. North America will see 33 of these (plus one refurbished), five less than last year. Also in 2020, Southern California’s original theme park, Knott’s Berry Farm, commemorates its 100-year anniversary with a grand summer-long celebration


paying tribute to the Knott family’s rich history and legacy of family fun for all. Compiled from reports, press releases, and interviews, here is what's planned to open this year in North America.


New Parks When the $5 billion American Dream Meadowlands, a retail and entertainment complex in East Rutherford, New Jersey, opened in 2019 only one of its four planned new parks was ready. That was the Nickelodeon Universe theme park. Its DreamWorks water park opened in March 2020 with KidZania and Legoland


Discovery Center soon to follow. The complex also contains an observation wheel, an indoor ice rink, concert hall, indoor ski slope, 18-hole miniature golf course, dine-in 4D movie theatre, Lucky Strike bowling alley, and Sea Life Aquarium. Aquatic Development Group (ADG) is


the design/builder of the brand new Soaky Mountain Waterpark slated to open this summer in Sevierville, Tennessee. The Soaky Mountain waterpark is projected to bring 100,000 new visitors to Sevier County and increase annual nightly stays to the region. Estimated annual park attendance is expected to be 400,000 visitors.
