019 was a year of moderate performance for the world’s most popular theme parks and water parks, and a variable year for museums depending


on region, according to the most recent TEA/AECOM Theme Index and Museum Index. Globally, Disney remains the top theme park operator,


and the Louvre in Paris remains the world’s top-attended museum. John Robinett , senior vice president - Economics,


AECOM said, “After clearing the half billion attendance mark in 2018, the world’s top theme parks, water parks and attractions continued to climb to 521.2 million in 2019 for a 4.0% annual growth rate as represented by the top 10 attraction groups. The Asian operators once again dominated - with OCT, Chimelong, and Fantawild all reporting high single- or double-digit increases.” Robinett added, “As a whole, 2019 was a rather

mild-mannered year in the industry, with stable results in the established European and American markets being supplemented by moderate growth in Asia.

well and remained relatively stable in 2019, globally attracting some 105.5 million visits overall compared to 108.1 million in 2018.


The americas - theme parks and water parks The Top 20 theme parks in North America saw 1.2% growth overall in 2019, representing 1.9 million new visits. The top 20 water parks in North America added nearly 200,000 visits in 2019, an increase of 1.2% over 2018. The top 10 water parks in Latin America passed the 10.0 million mark in collective attendance for the first time - 10.2 million visits representing a 2.5% year- over-year increase. Kathleen LaClair, associate principal - Americas,


AECOM, said, “Collectively, we’re seeing the operators and parks in this sector doing all the right things – make strategic acquisitions, invest in new lands and rides, extend the season and customer base with new events, and focus on the guest experience to drive performance. These practices will continue to be important as the industry moves forward.”
