Record 2013 Attendance for Parks and Resorts Scandinavia


Parks and Resorts Scandinavia have recorded a 10 year high in visitor numbers with 2.7 million guests from January to September 2013 (a 6% increase on the 2012 season).

Outgoing CEO Jan Roy attributed the successful season to a strategy of investing in world class guest experiences and high quality staff.
