Hotel & Leisure Advisors April issue of World Waterpark Magazine to include 2018 U.S. Waterpark Update. 

H&LA announces the release of our 2018 U.S. Waterpark Update, which was published in the April 2018 issue of World Waterpark Magazine and available on our website.

The waterpark industry continues to expand in North America, with more than $1 billion in new investment in indoor and outdoor waterparks and their related resorts slated for 2018. Nearly 60 expansions and new facilities will open in 2018. We project 14 municipal and eight private outdoor waterparks will open, outpacing 2017’s nine municipal and four private outdoor additions. There will be increased growth in the indoor segment with an additional 464,000 square feet of waterpark space planned for development.

Two of this year’s most anticipated new waterparks are the SoundWaves Waterpark at Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville, Tennessee, which is slated to open in the fall; and Big Rivers Waterpark at Grand Texas in New Caney, Texas, which is slated to open in the summer.

The entire 2018 Update, including a look back at 2017 and projections for 2018, can be read at https://hladvisors.com/waterparks-whats-on-deck-in-2018/
