Amusement Parks & Arcades
Brief Excerpt from Industry Overview Chapter:
Companies in this industry operate amusement parks or arcades. Major amusement park companies include Walt Disney, Six Flags, and Universal Parks & Resorts (all based in the US), as well as Fantawild (China), Merlin Entertainments (UK), OCT Parks (China), and Parques Reunidos (Spain). Major arcade operators include US-based Dave & Buster's and CEC Entertainment (Chuck E Cheese's), and Andretti's Indoor Karting and Games.
Demand is driven by consumer income. The profitability of individual companies depends on good marketing. Large companies can more easily build expensive rides and have economies of scale in operations and advertising. Smaller companies can compete by serving smaller markets or offering special rides. The US industry is highly concentrated: the 50 largest companies generate about 85% of revenue.
