Croatia to open first theme park

Park to have 26 attractions in three sections
Croatia says it is opening its first theme park for adults and children in June, “modelled according to the world’s famous adrenaline centres”.
The €15 million theme park will span over 45,000 square metres in the coastal town of Biograd na Moru, near the Crvena Luka tourist resort, and visitors will have 26 attractions to choose from, divided into three sections – Pirate City, Wild West and the Universe.
Construction work started early last year, the plan modelled on Italy’s Gardaland.
By day, the park will include rollercoasters and slides, restaurants, cafés and a tunnel aquarium with fish from the Adriatic. By night, a nightclub, disco and a casino will also be open, with a separate entrance.
Located close to Croatia’s three national parks (Paklenica, Kornati and Krka) and nature parks Telaščica and Vransko Lake, the country’s biggest, should add to the amusement park’s allure.
Situated partly on a small peninsula, Biograd na moru will also soon be the first Dalmatian town with a golf course. Once a coronation city of Croatian kings, it is a port with ferries to nearby islands, and beaches, bays and diving sites are within reach.
