These types of lists always interest me. One thing that I find surprising is that there are four Cedar Fair parks ahead of the first Six Flags. I guess I never really paid attention to attendance very much. Just a personal perception I always had, thinking SFMM would outdo the top Cedar Fair parks. Thanks for sharing!

And it keeps suprising me that parks like cedar point and canadas wonderland attract less people than say, the efteling in the netherlands.

I'm interested to see how much Potter brings up USO's attendance this year, considering last year Transformers brought it up 14%. (Or am I missing another big ride?)

Here are a couple of things that I take away from this:

1: 9 of the top 10 Worldwide are Disney (Not Surprised).

2: Of the 6 Major Parks in FL (Disney + Universal), all 4 Disney Parks are ahead of Universal, what change will Harry Potter make this year, along with a full year of Transformers?

3: I also had no idea that the Disney Water Parks were both so popular.

4: And it's a shame, but the PETA and Blackfish folk will see the decline in numbers and claim victory over SeaWorld.

I really like reading the PDF file Robb linked. It talks about waterparks and museums as well. Very interesting stuff.

Any insight as to why Busch / SeaWorld took such a beating last year?

SeaWorld Orlando was down 5% despite opening a major new ride.
SeaWorld California was down 3%
Busch Gardens Tampa was down 6%
Busch Gardens Williamsburg was down 4.5%

the ghost seems to think there is a "Donkey Fairy"

Nice to see MM almost back to 3 mil after dropping down to 2.5 mil a few seasons ago.

Awesome increase for Universal Orlando
