    Plans have been unveiled for Poland's first Theme Park, Adventure World Warsaw, due to open in 2014. The park is situated approximately 30 minutes from the city centre. It is expected to create approximately 1000 jobs, and attract 2 million visitors a year.

    The heavily themed resort will include a hotel, water park and restaurants. The designers are aiming for the park to draw comparisons with Alton Towers, Efteling and Europa Park. Whilst there have been no announcements yet as to what rides to expect in the park (although the video on their website might give a few clues!), Vekoma are involved in the development.

    Right lets start the ball rolling :p

    Vekoma involvement and this picture from the site could possibly suggest a family boomerang model.

    Lets hope it proves more fruitful than the Park Fantasia project that never got off the ground

    Expecting 2 million visitors in the first phase? Come on now. And that video was creepy.

    Every single ride in the video seems to be Vekoma, from a Vekoma rapids, to a Vekoma madhouse to a Vekoma mine train!

    Also spot the fleeting appearance of Drayton's Ben 10 with it's colours photoshopped blue! :lol:

    ^I wondered what that ride was! Makes total sense now! You can even see hints of green if you look carefully.

    God, that music was annoying. I get the feeling this will one of those weird European parks, where because you don't know what's going on everything is a bit creepy.

    Agreed :/

    I'm not sure... it seems extremely similar to Rainbow Magicland but slightly more tacky! And I doubt there will be a decent coaster anyway.

    But in a country that has 2 coasters, a Schwarzkopf Jet Star and the old Twin Looper from American Adventure (now Tic-Tac Tornado) they can build almost any Vekoma rides and be the biggest park in the country. An SLC would be the countries biggest coaster by some way.

    Hahahaha, the video! Adveeeenture world, adveeeeeenture world! <3 Awesome.

    Looks pretty interesting though, can't say it appears terribly original in the ideas for the theming of the lands/type of attractions they want to build, but whatever, a new park is a new park =]

    In one way I love that fact that we're not getting tatty old crappy parks anymore and every new park announced looks awesomely themed etc, but in another way I am going to miss the crapness that comes with parks built with little money to begin with.

    Some sexy new artwork on their Facebook page, which I've "borrowed" for a news article.

    http://www.coasterforce.com/news/park-n ... aw-artwork

    The images show a Vekoma Junior Boomerang and another coaster. Other rides include a drop tower, a splash battle, a water ride, and several flat rides.

    I do hope this actually happens, still seems a bit of an odd place to put a park like this. When I went to Poland last year it just seemed to be a very poor place, makes me think if the families of the country will have the spare cash to spend at a resort like this.

    ^I'd imagine that entrance prices would have to suit the location though. Sure, it will be an expensive set up, but due to the location I'd guess (without looking into this at all) that it would be cheap to operate due to lower staff wages etc.

    I'm kind of thinking of Bangkok Dreamworld a bit; it's outside a "poor" city, but it gets plenty of custom, which from what I could see was 95% local. There are people with money, or at least enough money to splash out on some kind of local luxury/entertainment, in any major city, however "poor" that city might be compared to what we're used to here.

    Same with places like World Joyland. New park, in a massive poor dump... It seems to be doing well.

    This better be better than World Joyland though, which is a HOLE.

    Not really news as such, but someone might find it vaguely interesting. Increased investment has been set aside to implement Green solutions in the planned Theme Park.

    It certainly looks a very interesting theme park in terms of theming, but the rides don't really look special enough, considering it's indefinately going to be Poland's only theme park. Chances are, most Warsaw residents have never been to a theme park, and making the park itself spectacular, something really special, would be a great start, and a brilliant way to indroduce Poland to theme parks.

    Maybe the second theme park will have more in the way of rides. After all, some excellent theme parks have no rides at all, Futuroscope, Holy Land, etc. This is one project I'll definately be following.

    Re: Adventure World Warsaw

    ^In fairness, the fact that it's Poland's only theme park means that they don't need to make a massive effort in terms of the rides. They've got no competition, so there's no need to throw money away on more expensive rides when a few "basics" will more than do the job.

    The only reason they'd need to make it "really special" would be if they needed to compete with an existing park, which they don't.
