Las Palm, the developer of Adventure World Warsaw (AWW) has announced plans for what is says will be the largest family theme park in the Middle East.
The proposed Adventure World Abu Dhabi will be developed in parallel to Adventure World Warsaw, although the Polish park will open first, in October 2014.
“Similarly to the park in Poland, Adventure World Abu Dhabi will be composed of five theme islands with 25 attractions, an entertainment area, restaurants, shops, hotels and an aqua park,” says Las Palm CEO Peter Jan Mulder. “Currently we are at the stage of securing land with a area of approximately 80 hectares. We have encountered full resolve on the part of Abu Dhabi to carry the investment into effect.”
Plans for the new park, which if it happens will join a growing list of local attractions including Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and the upcoming Yas Island waterpark, were announced by Mulder at a press conference in Warsaw on December 15. Updating attendees on the progress of Adventure World Warsaw, he stated that €11 million had already been spent on works related to park development, which will be located 50km from the Polish capital in Grodzisk Mazowiecki. Two key staff were recently appointed to the project team, executive managing director Steven Shaiken and chief financial officer Ewa Woroszył.
