Which Theme Park Company Is the Best?
Is Disney, Universal or another company leading the industry right now? Our readers have their say. Plus, a new coaster debuts as a classic says goodbye.
As we head into the final month of the summer 2022 vacation season, I would love to hear what you are thinking about the state of the theme park industry right now. That’s why last weekend I asked, How Do You Feel About Disney, Universal and Other Theme Parks?
