UAE's Theme Parks To Welcome 19 Million Visitors by 2020

THEME PARK TOURISM, A REPORT BY COLLIERS INTERNATIONAL, HAS FORECASTED THAT THE UAE’S EXISTING, AND NEW GENERATION THEME PARKS WILL ATTRACT MORE THAN 19 MILLION ADMISSIONS A YEAR BY 2020, IF CURRENT TRENDS CONTINUE.

IN LIGHT OF THIS, THE ARABIAN TRAVEL MARKET (ATM) IS TO HIGHLIGHT THE INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT ROLE OF UAE’S MAJOR THEME PARKS IN ACHIEVING TOURIST ARRIVAL TARGET.

The prediction has been made using existing admissions and arrivals data for Yas Island’s Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Waterworld in addition to Dubai’s Aquaventure waterpark and Wild Wadi waterpark as well as a sample of new and upcoming parks.

Similar patterns are expected to be seen for IMG Worlds of Adventure and Dubai Parks and Resorts, which opened this year in Dubai.

Simon Press, senior exhibition director, ATM, said, “Theme parks are a new addition to the tourism landscape here in the GCC and it is important that destinations are positioned to take full advantage of the benefits they can bring.”
