America’s 17th Most Visited Park of 2007

According to themeit.com, the park saw an estimated 3 million visitors in 2007, making it the 17th most visited theme park in the US.

Interesting Facts

The Effiel Tower replica is actual 1/3 of the actual height of the original, and elevators regularly take patrons up to the top of the tower, which provides a chance to see the entire park and, at park closing, offers the best view of the nightly fireworks display.

Accuracy & Authority – 4/5

Since most of the information is directly from the people who brought us the theme park, information is accurate and relevant.

Objectivity – 2/5

As this is the main website, the main aim is to attract more visitors to the park. As such, information may be biased and tweaked in a way that may “sell” the park.

Currency – 5/5

Again, as this is the main website for the park, information has to be up to date and relevant to the times to meet visitors’ needs.

Coverage – 5/5

Very extensive, does not miss out much.
