^ Fortunately, they reported a 15% attendance increase in Q1 this year. Hopefully it's the beginning of a continuing upward trend. I will say I've noticed more and more of the SeaWorld commercials to actually advertise the coasters and shows of the park instead of solely on their environmental outreach, so hopefully that'll have a lasting impact.

Good to see Disneyland Paris bouncing back for their 25th anniversary last year, after their 2016 attendance took a huge hit due to the terrorist attack in 2015, which caused a general decline of tourism in the area.

I love this report. I never read tooooooo much into the statistics, but I love reading the analysis - it's like a theme park yearbook or something and it's nice to recap what's happened over the last year and what the general trends have been globally.

Can you see the donkey in my toast?

It's one of my favorite annual reports to look at as I love to see the current visitation trends in the theme park industry, and I think its really well done and presented like a nice yearbook. I like that they also put water parks and even museums into the report (I just wish someone tracked zoo and aquarium attendance as well).

Interesting that Cedar Point reports/had an estimated 0% change in attendance.

I sort of assumed they were down so that’s actually not too shabby if true.

I'm happy that Knott's is now a top ten US park. They have been making great changes in the last few years and with HangTime opening up they will grow in attendance even more next year.

The more telling statistics with SeaWorld are not just in the one year or Q1 numbers. Compare the 2008 and 2017 figures.

SeaWorld Orlando 2008 - 6.2MM
SeaWorld Orlando 2017 - 4.0MM

SeaWorld California 2008 - 4.8MM
SeaWorld California 2017 - 3.1MM

Disney is clearly king so let's compare to Universal's figures

Universal Studios Orlando 2008 - 6.1MM
Universal Studios Orlando 2017 - 10.2MM

Universal IOA 2008 - 5.2MM
Universal IOA 2017 - 9.5MM

Universal Studios Hollywood 2008 - 4.6MM
Universal Studios Hollywood 2017 - 9.0MM
As usual, my analysis is free of charge!

I'm not even sure that Universal's figures are a good comparison considering that they invested into what would become one of the biggest I.P.s in theme park history starting a few years after 2008.
