Amusement Parks: United States

ABOUT THIS REPORT

Scope & Method


This report forecasts US amusement park attendance and revenues in US dollars to
2017. Total attendance is segmented in terms of:

theme parks
water parks.

Venues such as arcades, carnivals, fairs, laser tag facilities, museums, pools, ski
resorts, and zoos operated independently of an amusement park are excluded from the
scope of this report.
To illustrate historical trends, total revenues and attendance are provided in annual
series from 2002 to 2012; the various attendance segments are reported at five-year
intervals for 2007 and 2012. Forecasts emanate from the identification and analysis of
pertinent statistical relationships and other historical trends/events as well as their
expected progression/impact over the forecast period. Changes in quantities between
reported years of a given total or segment are typically provided in terms of five-year
compound annual growth rates (CAGRs). For the sake of brevity, forecasts are
generally stated in smoothed CAGR-based descriptions to the forecast year, such as
demand is projected to rise 3.2% annually through 2017. The result of any particular
year over that period, however, may exhibit volatility and depart from a smoothed, longterm trend, as historical data typically illustrate.
Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided at five-year intervals with CAGRs for
the years corresponding to other reported figures. Other various topics, including
profiles of pertinent leading suppliers, are covered in this report. A full outline of report
items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
