In the last decade the number of theme parks in Europe has increased by a third, to 83 established parks, according to Economics Research Associates, which tracks the industry, while the number of admissions has risen two-thirds, to 101 million, and revenues doubled, to $2.2 billion. Last year, Europe's 83 parks averaged about 1.2 million visitors each, far fewer than the 2 million that packed into each of America's 226 parks.
