Chinese theme/amusement parks among world's most popular

Five amusement parks in China and Hong Kong are among the world's top 25 most visited amusement parks.

More people than ever are visiting theme and amusement parks, with 2015 attendance up 5.4 percent over 2015. The CNN article was based on  the Themed Entertainment Association/AECOM 10th annual global attractions attendance report. Asian parks are seeing the most gain in attendance.

The Chinese and Hong Kong parks on the list are:
  • No. 25: Songcheng Lijiang Romance Park in Lijiang.
  • No. 18: Hong Kong Disneyland, which is no surprise since Disney parks get the most visitors anywhere. Toy Story is this parks top attraction.
  • No. 17: SongCheng Park. Located in Hangzhou, this theme park is dedicated to the Song Dynasty (960 to late \ 1200s).
  • No. 15: Ocean Park, a marine life park in Hong Kong.
  • No. 13: Chimelong Ocean Park in Guangdong Province.  Visitors get close-up views of marine life as they walk through a transparent underwater tunnel
