What is the Amusement Parks and Centres Operation Industry?

Amusement or theme parks offer attractions such as mechanical rides, water slides, games, shows and theme exhibits. They also lease venue space for other businesses to operate attractions or provide services (such as selling food) on a concession basis. Amusement arcades, centres or parlours are permanently located within a venue and offer many coin-operated games, such as pinball. Similar firms operate a limited number of amusement machines and rides in shopping centres and fairgrounds.
