Vote of the week: Will you be visiting a theme park for the holidays?
Written by Robert Niles
Now that Halloween's over for another year, the nation's top theme parks are turning their attention toward Christmas.Tweet
Sure, the year-round parks will enjoy a crush of visitors around Thanksgiving weekend, and parks near college bowl games will stay filled through New Year's, but Christmas provides the focus for the next two months at the nation's top theme parks.
But will you be going?
That's the question that parks are wondering now, and the we are asking in this week's vote. The industry's financial performance this year has been dismal, matching much of the rest of the economy, and park managers fear that even if visitors do show up, they won't spend like in years past.
So what are your holiday travel plans? Tell us the details in the comments, please. Will you be visiting a theme park between now and New Year's? If you won't, why not? If you will, where will you be going and how will your trip compare with previous years'?
Thanks, again, for reading Theme Park Insider, and have a great weekend!
