Singapore attracted almost 7 million visitors in 1994. Receipts from tourists also accounted for about 10 percent of the gross national product. As a small island of only 640 square kilometers, Singapore has almost no natural scenery to offer. Many of its tourism attractions are man-made and theme parks play an important role in attracting visitors not only from abroad but also locally. This paper aims to describe the local theme park industry and examine its problems and prospects. It is found that the theme parks in Singapore will face stiff competition, not only from each other, but also from the region where theme park development projects are abound. The changing environment also dictates that these theme parks will have to be innovative and must attempt to accommodate the changing needs of the visitors in order to stay viable.
