World's Most Popular Amusement Parks

Sixty-foot vertical drops and $45 admission tickets are old news. Today, the steepest thing in the amusement industry is the growth of spending in Asia.

The U.S. theme park industry, once a rocketing roller coaster, is looking more and more like a lazy turn on the Ferris wheel. Amusement park sales in the U.S. are forecast to grow from $10.8 billion to $12.9 billion between 2005 and 2009, according to a recent study by PricewaterhouseCoopers. That's an average annual growth rate of 3.9%--sluggish compared to the 5.5% the industry experienced between 1999 and 2000.

Meanwhile, the Asia/Pacific theme park market will balloon from $6.1 billion to $8.1 billion, an average annual growth rate of 5.7%. And the amusement industry in Europe, the Middle East and Africa combined will grow about 5% per year, reaching $5 billion by 2009.

圖:海洋公園入選全球十大最受歡迎,香港迪士尼樂園看來要急起直追了



遇強越強,海洋公園越戰越勇!國際著名雜誌「福布斯」前日選出全球去年十大最受歡迎主題公園,海洋公園以超過四百萬的全年入場人次,進佔第七位。而全年入場人次超過一千萬的美國奧蘭多、東京和巴黎的迪士尼樂園就獨霸三甲位置。看來,香港迪士尼樂園要和同伴或對手看齊,要想想辦法才行。\大公報記者 吳美慧

「福布斯」雜誌網頁選出去年十大最受歡迎主題公園,海洋公園位列第七。報道指,全球各個以海洋生態為主題的公園當中,海洋公園是最大的。公園內有四十個景點供遊客遊覽,遊客只要坐上公園纜車,南中國海和附近城市的美景,盡入眼簾。海洋公園行政總裁苗樂文對此表示感到榮幸,並承諾會為遊客提供更多景點、大型節目和設施。

全年入場人次四百萬

是次選舉,迪士尼樂園盡領風騷。美國奧蘭多的迪士尼樂園(Magic Kingdom Part at Walt Disney World),以全年一千六百二十萬人次排眾而出,名列榜首;而東京迪士尼(Tokyo Disneyland)就以一千三百萬人次取得「榜眼」位置;雖然巴黎迪士尼樂園(Disneyland Paris)的入場費較其他主題公園昂貴(是海洋公園的五倍!),仍大受歡迎,入場人次達一千零二千萬人次。

至於屢受批評的香港迪士尼樂園,去年九月中才啟用,將來能否入選十大,仍是未知之數。不過,報道指,亞洲主題公園的發展,比其他地區為佳。去年,亞太區主題公園的全年總收入為六十一億美元,預計零九年的總收入上升百分之五點七,有八十一億美元。而歐洲、中東地區和非洲就有百分之五的增長率;再者,中國內地主題公園少、人口多,是發展主題公園的好地方。所以,香港迪士尼將要接受更多其他主題公園的挑戰。

外國迪士尼盡顯風騷

選舉中的其餘入圍公園,依次為為韓國的龍仁愛寶樂園(Everland),英國的黑池歡樂海灘(Blackpool Pleasure Beach),丹麥哥本哈根的蒂沃利公園(Tivoli Gardens),德國魯斯特的歐洲主題公園(Europa Park),加拿大的奇幻樂園(Paramount Canada's Wonderland),以及西班牙薩魯的冒險家樂園(Port Aventura)。
