Theme Park Attendence Down


Teenagers are not spending as much time at amusement parks as they used to.

According to findings by Global Market Research Firm Mintel, teens are choosing cheaper forms of entertainment.

Last year, 67 percent of kids ages 12 to 17 visited a theme park. Five years ago, 76 percent of teens went to amusement parks.

Rising admission prices, food prices and game prices contributed to the decline. Disney Parks and Resorts, however, are not seeing the same trend. Disney Parks set a record for attendance in its June quarter.
