The TEA/AECOM Theme Index and Museum Index is the definitive global attendance study by the economics practice at AECOM. It identifies industry trends and calendar-year visitation numbers for theme parks, water parks, museums and the top theme park group operators.

AECOM

The industry continued its post-recession attendance growth at a healthy rate of 4 percent for the top theme parks globally,” said John Robinett, AECOM senior vice president, economics, Americas. “That growth reflects a post-recession rebound in all regions: Europe at 3 percent, the Americas at 2 percent and Asia at 5 percent.”

Attendance growth at the top museums worldwide came in at just under 2 percent.

In theme parks and waterparks, worldwide trends to watch include Asia growth, Middle East resurgence, resort-style development, and the initiatives of the large, established operators.

A Chinese language print edition of the TEA/AECOM 2014 Theme Index and Museum Index will be available at the IAAPA Asian Attractions Expo in Hong Kong June 16-19.
