dc.description.abstractThis exploratory study focuses on obese people's perceptions of their theme park experience. Given this study's objective and the gap in the literature on obese people's tourist experience, a qualitative research approach was adopted. In-depth semi-structured interviews were conducted. Participants revealed that their theme park experiences included a strong sense of humiliation. This is clearly associated with the interaction between their body, the physical environment and most importantly the human environment. Managerial implications are suggested.en
