Top world theme parks and their 2017 admission prices

 

For most around the world, summertime is time for kids to explore, play and learn a little bit outside of the classroom. It's also a time for family vacations, with most parents taking a few weeks off of work so that they can treat their family to a trip of a lifetime. Though some families decide to stay within their own country for their vacation, others choose to explore another piece of the world. During this exploration, it's very common for families to take a day or two to explore an internationally recognized theme park, creating fun for everyone involved.

In fact, there are literally thousands of parks around the globe and in 2015, over 420.4 million people visited the top 10 theme park brands worldwide, throughout the year.

In addition to a short summary detailing what you can discover at each theme park, we've also included their summer rates for both children and adults, giving you an idea of what you'll end up paying once you visit.
