MASON, Ohio (AP) — A new report says Ohio's Cedar Point and Kings Island were the most-visited theme parks in the nation last year outside of the usual hot spots in Florida and California.

The Themed Entertainment Association reports that Cedar Point in Sandusky came in 14th in the nation in attendance, and Kings Island near Cincinnati was 15th. Both had around 3.2 million visitors in 2012.

Disney's Magic Kingdom near Orlando, Fla., was the most visited park in the country last year with 17.5 million visitors. Other parks in Florida and California filled out the top 13.

Kings Island's attendance grew 2.5 percent last year, and Cedar Point grew by 0.7 percent. Both are owned by Cedar Fair Entertainment Co.

The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/ZZNCAU ) reported the rankings Tuesday.
