Construction Begins On Paramount Theme Park Murcia

Construction on the Paramount Theme Park Murcia has officially begun following a formal ceremony today attended by several dignatories, officials and members of the press.

Expected to create more than 22,000 much needed jobs in the region, Premursa President Jesus Samper believes the project will become an international tourist destination and attract more than 3 million visitors per year.

Despite a few false starts and hurdles along the way such as land purchasing problems , today marks an important milestone towards the official opening of the park together with it's much anticipated LifeStyle Center in Spring 2015.

That is a great idea Mick. Let's hope the guys in charge of it bring the whole 4D into their design and role out plans and make it happen. The latest technology trends is definitely the way to go for that visual masterpiece display that people won't be able to get enough of....they would definitely return again and again.

I think a Hollywood 4D theme park in Spain is much needed it will blow all other theme and attractions out the water. friends and family can't wait for it to be built.

Corey : The truth of the matter is that very little has happened on site at Paramount over recent months due to the changes in planning following a reshuffle of the footprint. If you click the link >>HERE<< you can see a short video clip of the actual site (as of 2 weeks ago) showing just how little has been acheived to date.

As far as Corvera Airport is concerned, the regional Gov't of Murcia recently announced how Corvera and San Javier "could" both operate at the same time for a period of up to 6 months within the next few months - Click here for that article >>HERE<<

This is November now. How much work on the Paramount Theme Park has been done so far? Do you think it will be on target for 2015? Also when will the Corvera airport actually open? I understand it is doing trial landings, etc, at the minute?

I think the formula used by Premursa to calculate expected visitor numbers is something similar to this :

Actual visitor numbers for Port Aventura x actual visitor numbers for Park Warner x actual visitor numbers for Isla Majica, Divided by probability of Corvera Airport ever opening, minus the probability of ever being able to attract investors.

That or they have no idea themselves, but think that everybody will get so exited about the prospect of 22'000 new jobs that they won't pay too much attention to their figures.

I think Jesus Samper has confused the numbers he would LIKE to see and the numbers he NEEDS to see and then chucked in a dollop of good old fashioned guess-work.

I would be interested to know how this estimation of 3 million visitors was calculated and if Corvera airport being operational was a factor in this...
