Amusement parks play a vital role in the global entertainment and leisure industry, which encompasses water parks, amusement parks, & theme parks. The market for these parks is significantly influenced by demographic shifts and rapid changes in the economic and social landscape. For example, regulations like those set by IAAPA in the U.S., which restrict certain rides for children under 18, have led many parks to focus on creating thrilling and adventurous rides specifically designed for adults.

This strategic shift has not only made amusement parks more appealing to children but has also attracted a wider audience, including adults and their families. The industry has adapted to these age-based demographic changes to cater to the preferences of both younger generations and their parents, ensuring a diverse and engaging experience for visitors of all ages.

Market is characterized by the dominance of established key players, making it difficult for new entrants to establish their presence. This challenge arises due to several factors, including the need for substantial capital investment, acquiring suitable land for park construction, the impact of climatic conditions on visitor numbers, and the uncertainty associated with the success of the business venture. These hurdles pose significant challenges for newcomers, making it a competitive and challenging environment to enter and thrive in.
