Theme Parks Chart

THEME PARK CHART: myTOP28

Nearly 400 millions of us visited at last one theme park just in 2014 itself.

They are more popular than ever. As a huge fan of everything what goes down the hill very fast ,I put together list of all parks “tested and verified” by myself.

Below chart is based not just on rides but overall visual and customer experience, landscaping,layout, the story and most importantly how much of “magic  dust” you get to be covered of.
