First theme park in Croatia set to open next Easter

First theme park in Croatia set to open next Easter

Construction on the Croatian version of Italy’s Gardaland theme park in the northern Dalmatian town of Biograd na Moru will start on Wednesday, reports Poslvoni.hr

The ‘Croatian Gardaland’, which will be the first theme park built-in Croatia, has been designed by Italian Amusement Design specialists Bausaa, who have worked on the design of theme parks in Russia, Turkey and Saudi Arabia. Investors are hoping that the park will attract more than 200,000 visitors a year when it opens by 1 May 2017 at the latest.

The theme park will operate in a similar fashion to Gardaland and have 25 attractions such as roller coasters, carousels, water rides, lakes, and a stage for artistic performances. The park will have three sections – a children’s section, a family section and a section for teenagers with adrenalin rides – and also an electronic games and simulators hall. There will also be a range of firework spectacles. There will also be restaurants and cafes at the park. Zagreb firm Tehnika will carry out the construction.
