From Disneyland and Dreamworld to Luna Park, Legoland and Dollywood, there’s a theme park out there for just about every kind of fun-seeker — and the latest findings from Roy Morgan Research show that 740,000 Australian holiday-goers visited at least one on their last holiday.
While Australia is still the most common destination for holiday-makers who have visited a theme park on their last trip (55%), foreign destinations were also popular, with 45% of holiday-makers who visited a theme park on their last trip being overseas when they did so.
The USA was the most popular international destination by far among people who went to a theme park on their last overseas holiday, attracting 33% of them. Other popular destinations for overseas travellers who visited a theme park on their last overseas holiday were Japan (15%), Singapore (12%), the UK (9%) and Thailand (7%).
