Awards 2016

Results Diamond ThemePark Awards 2016

Special thanks to Walibi Holland

Each edition has its winners. Also the sixth edition of the Diamond ThemePark Awards has given several great winners. Everytime a quest has been initiated to find the best amusement, park, the best zoo. 
Almost 45.000 voters determined for 50% the winners, the other half is being determined by the scores of the jury, which exist out several great fans who visit parks even more than professionals... With their passion and their sharp eyes, they are best placed to give an honest comparison between the different nominees.

The winners got awarded during a special event in the Walibi Bizniz Center in Walibi Holland, a multi-functional area which was the scene of this special event.
