Theme parks - additional information

The most visited theme park worldwide, Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom, located in Florida, reports increasing visitor numbers each year. However, this decreased slightly in 2016, during which attendance at the park was around 20.4 million. Disney's theme parks are not only ranked high in the United States. Disneyland Park in France received 9.84 million visitors in 2018 - almost twice that of its closest European competitor, Europa Park in Germany, which counted 5.72 million attendees.

In recent years, the controversial use of killer whales in shows and performances at SeaWorld parks has been the topic of public debate. In February 2010, a captive killer whale located at the SeaWorld park in Florida killed its trainer during a show. That year, the park reported a decline in visitor numbers. Declining visitor numbers at the SeaWorld theme park in California were also reported during the same year - a decline that would last until the year 2018, in which SeaWorld park attendance numbers increased again.
