2012 Water Park Attendance Results

Morning Thrill Seekers,

Yesterday I shared with you the 2012 Theme Park attendance results which were dominated by Disney (as usual). Today I thought I’d take a look at the 2012 attendance report for Water Parks.

Although I’m not the strongest of swimmers I do love a good water park and no one in the World does a better water park than the Americans.


Disney offers 2 themed water parks, Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach.

Typhoon Lagoon is the World’s busiest water park with attendance figures for 2012 up 2% yoy to an impressive 2,100,000.

Blizzard Beach also fares well on a global scale claiming the number 3 spot in the World and servicing 1,929,000 up 2% yoy.

Aquatica is one of Florida’s newest water parks and has quickly become a must visit for residents and tourists alike. Despite being only 4 years old, Aquatica has managed to service 1,538,000 in 2012 which represents a year on year increase of 2.5% and gives it a worldwide positioning of 5th.


Wet N’ Wild is one of Orlando’s more recognisable water parks and boasts more multi passenger rides than any other water park in the World. This has helped it to a respectable 8th in World based on 1,247,000 visitors in 2012 up 2% yoy.

Here is the top 20 list of Water Parks in America

As you can see Florida dominates the top spots but on a whole 2012 was a good year for water parks in the USA.

Which is your favourite water park?
