New Theme Park Opens this Weekend on Dalmatian Coast

Fun Park Mirnovec opens tomorrow

The first theme park built-in Croatia will open its doors on Saturday.

Fun Park Mirnovec, which is located 2 km south of the Dalmatian town of Biograd na Moru, will open on Saturday, 15 July.

For the first 5 days, from 15-20 July, Fun Park Mirnovec will operate at a reduced capacity and will be open during this initial period from 3 pm – 11 pm. Ticket prices will be cheaper over this period (between 100-120 kuna).

“Starting from 20 July, we will start to work with full capacity with a ticket price of 130 to 190 kuna depending on the type of ticket,” Fun Park Mirnovec Director Boris Kovaček said.

The first theme park in Croatia took 1 year and 2 months to complete and is based on Gardaland in Italy, and theme parks in Florida and Orlando.

The park, which spans over 45,000 square metres, will have 26 attractions in three themes – Pirate Town, Wild West, and Space.

As well as attractions such as roller coasters, carousels, and water rides, the park will have the 30-metre high ‘Adriatic Eye’, like the London Eye, which will have a view out to Pašman island.

Between 150,000 and 180,000 visitors are expected annually.

“In the preseason and postseason we will work on weekends, and in the tourist season we will be open every day,” said Kovaček.

Check out all the attractions and details about tickets on the official website.
