Disneyland in Bucharest?

The first big entertainment park in Romania is set to be developed in the Western part of Bucharest, on a total of 26 hectares, near the ring-road of the Capital, ‘Gandul’ daily wrote on Friday. The investment required by the future Bucharest World of Adventures Park is estimated at almost EUR 140 M and the construction will last three years, according to the project presented by Impact De­ve­loper&Contractor during the Arab-Romanian Forum held in Bucharest last week. The theme park’s main attractions will be two roller coasters, a tower where visitors could try the sensations of a free fall, a planetarium and outer space simulation studios. In addition, the entertainment park will offer an aqua park, water attractions for the warm season as well as many other opportunities for having fun. Equally, the amusement park will include a multifunctional performance hall, a shopping area, a luxury hotel, restaurants, an outlet centre as well as a car park like major similar facilities around the world. Impact President Dan Ioan Popp told the quoted source that the success of the project would depend on a number of factors, including the macro-economic climate min Romania. According to him, the project also interests Chinese and American investors.

The idea of an amusement park came from the fact that in Bucharest and surrounding areas there are actually few spots where people can rest and have fun in their spare time, project initiators say. There are no family amusement places in Bucharest and the entertainment provided by existing malls and cinemas are focussed on young people, they add. The Impact officials estimate that the park would receive an average of over 0.8 M visitors in the first year, the figure being expected to rise to 1.4 M per year afterwards. Dan Ioan Popp was ranked in the Forbes Romania 2010 top as the 375th richest Romanian businessman, with an estimated wealth of EUR 13 M.
