title Finding Relationships Between Visitor Traffics around Major Attractions and the Surrounding Environments in Theme Parks
source Emerging Experience in Past, Present and Future of Digital Architecture, Proceedings of the 20th International Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2015) / Daegu 20-22 May 2015, pp. 777-784
summary The objective of the paper is to find the relationship between the visitors’ traffic flows throughout the park and the distribution of the service facilities in four different Disneyland theme parks. This paper argues that there are patterns for attraction placement of specific functions such as shops, restaurants, and attractions to manipulate the human traffic. Instead of evaluating moving time and visitors’ preferences, we focused on analysing the spatial arrangements of the thematic areas and the locations of the service facilities to understand which factors influence the traffics around attractions. To do that, an agent analysis method is used to simulate the human traffics which was then analyzed with each service capacities, theme park routes, number of restaurants, shops and attractions in each thematic areas. Our results indicate that there are shared patterns of traffic flows around attractions for four different Disneyland parks. Moreover, the traffic flows around attractions did not show significant relationship with attraction capacities themselves for all of the Disneylands.
