Also, the amusement theme park is a phenomenal tourist content, which our tourism lacks so much. This is proved by the interest of current guests from Zadar, Šibenik and other destinations, who can hardly wait for the opening of the amusement park.Global trends in the amusement park industryWhether it is a theme, amusement, water or educational park, a technology museum, a zoo or an aquarium, the demand for this type of entertainment is not growing. All over the world, existing parks are being continuously upgraded and improved, and new ones are being opened.According to research by the International Amusement Park Association (IAAPA), the amusement park industry has a significant impact on national economies. The United States is the most developed market in the world. With 400 parks and 330 million visitors a year and revenues of $ 13 billion, they make up 52% of the total world market.Europe is one of the most developed in terms of the number of parks per capita. It is a market with 300 parks, 163 million visitors a year and total revenues of $ 6 billion. Although comparisons with the booming Asian market are ungrateful, the old continent and the cradle of industry continue to grow at a rate of over 3% per year. The industry employs 53.000 people, and the number of visitors in the leading parks reaches a growth rate of up to 25% per year.Content, content and only quality contentThe motive for the arrival is not accommodation, but diverse, quality and authentic content of the tourist destination. Our biggest tourist advantage is precisely our incredible diversity and authenticity. Thousands of amazing stories that tourists want to see, experience and taste. It is through theme parks and museums that Croatia must build its tourist product in order to tell all our indigenous incredible stories.The first amusement theme park in the first year of operation plans to attract 180.000 visitors, and this great tourist story will certainly be a real impetus to the development of the destination and will increase the competitiveness of Biograd, Zadar County and beyond on the tourist map of Croatia. Also, such investments and tourist stories through the aspect of generating quality content must be declared strategic tourist projects, as well as have the great support of tourist institutions.An excellent tourist story that will raise the whole region to a higher level, primarily through the additional quality content of the tourist destination, which is chronically lacking in our tourism.
