Water Parks in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Water Parks

The Water Parks industry has made a big splash over the five years to 2017, as industry revenue was bolstered by rising per capita disposable incomes, falling unemployment rates and a generally improving economy. Increased consumer spending has played into the industry's growth as consumers splurged on discretionary items such as water park tickets. The industry's biggest water parks are owned and operated by global players such as Walt Disney Co. and Six Flags Entertainment Corporation. The Water Parks industry's recent growth is set to continue during the next five years. The strengthening macroeconomic climate will boost discretionary spending, which will help the domestic tourism sector.

This industry includes amusement parks that feature waterplay areas, such as waterslides, splash pads, spraygrounds (water playgrounds), lazy rivers or other recreational bathing, swimming and barefooting environments. These parks may be indoors, outdoors or a combination of both.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
