Total Croatia News

Croatian fireworks company Mirnovec Pirotehnika is investing in a brand new amusement park on the Croatian coast, a great addition to the tourist offer. 

“Mirnovec pirotehnika”, or more accurately its sister company “Mirnovec park” will commence construction works on a brand new amusement park in Biograd na Moru on April 13, 2016, reports.

According to the director of Mirnovec pirotehnika Franjo Koletić, new amusement park will have 25 different attractions for three different categories of visitors – children, adults and teenagers: “It will be divided into three themed groups; the Wild West, old pirate town and space. We will offer rides on various roller coasters, we’re building a hall for electronic games, amphitheatre and, of course we’ll be putting a special accent on fireworks and spectacles with pyrotechnics and fire” Franjo Koletić added.

He also added that this amusement park will not only focus on water attractions “It will be the very first amusement park in Croatia that will in many ways resemble Italian Gardaland and the famous amusement parks in Orlando Florida” Koletić stated.

According to Koletić, all building permits have been acquired and the park will be constructed on the land owned by the company. Initial investment is 15 million EUR, but, as it has been the case in other parks, since they tend to expand over time, it is likely that additional large investments will be added later on.

Koletić also mentioned the fact that the construction works were supposed to start in 2015 but, of course, Croatian administration had other plans “This is the first project of its kind in Croatia so we encountered many problems with the paperwork. But at is now all behind us and we are starting construction works this Wednesday. The project should be finished by next tourist season, maybe even by next Easter „he concluded.

The total area of the park is 45.654 square metres while the gross area of the buildings will be 2.177 square metres. According to the projections done by the main contractor Tehnika d.d., all construction works should be completed by February 28, 2017 and then the attractions and roller coasters will be assembled and installed by their manufacturers.
