Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Disneyland and Dollywood are tied for the title of America’s “Favorite Topic Park,” according to the results of an yearly survey.
The Nationwide Amusement Park Historical Association (NAPHA) — described as an “international academic and enthusiasts’ organization” for supporters and business insiders — conducts the annually survey to evaluate its members’ feelings on the finest rides, parks and sights across the region, KTLA sister station WRIC described. Groups incorporate Favorite Theme Park, Most loved Conventional Theme Park, Most Wonderful Park, Beloved Wooden Coaster, Beloved Steel Coaster and Favored New Attraction.
In addition to the a few-way tie for the greatest over-all park, users of the NAPHA voted Busch Gardens Williamsburg as the Most Beautiful Park in the U.S. for a 32nd straight yr. Knoebels Amusement Resort in Elyburg, Pennsylvania, also gained the distinction of Favored Standard Concept Park, a category reserved for smaller sized regional parks.
The study, based mostly on details collected in 2021, discovered that users went to an average of 10 parks final 12 months, in contrast to just 3.8 the former yr. The regular member has also visited 100 different parks in their life span, and rode on around 367 roller coasters.
“It’s excellent to see that persons are returning to amusement parks as reflected in the NAPHA Survey,” famous Marlowe McClasky Futrell, the NAPHA survey coordinator, in a push release. “This rebound speaks to the timeless enchantment of amusement parks.”
Far more data about 2021’s NAPHA-favored roller coasters and new attractions, as properly as previous years’ survey final results, can be uncovered at NAPHA’s official web page.
