Planning Your Florida Amusement Park Vacation

After Disneyland set up its East Coast base in Orlando, Florida emerged as the amusement park capital of the world. The Magic Kingdom, Disney's original park has the highest turnout of any other theme park on the planet. Universal Orlando Resort is also not far behind. While these two heavyweights battle for supremacy, you will find other amusement parks worth checking out during your vacation, including Legoland Florida, Busch Gardens Tampa, and SeaWorld Orlando.

Methodology

The theme parks included in this ranking include those that are located in Florida and are most searched by travelers using HomeToGo.com with travel dates between June 1st, 2023 and August 31st, 2023. In order to rank these theme parks, we researched 5 data points: the price of entry, the price of parking, the price of a nearby accommodations, the number of roller coasters, and the number of other attractions. After obtaining the raw data, we combined the data points into either Total Cost or Total Attractions and assigned each them a representative numerical value between 0 and 20, with 0 representing the lowest data point and 20 representing the highest data point. The hypothetical "perfect score" would be 40 out of 40. We used the following equation in order to calculate this for every factor:

Score(i) = 20 · (x(i) - xmin ) / (xmax - xmin )
