Mystery Park is due to reopen this summer near Interlaken, Switzerland, three years after it went bankrupt. Launched by Swiss author Erich von Däniken, the theme park features a number of “unsolved puzzles” involving human civilisation and extra terrestrial activity, including Stonehenge and the pyramids.
Marcel Meier, the manager appointed by the new owners, told the Berner Zeitung newspaper he believes the current economic crisis could attract families looking to cut down on travel and visit attractions closer to home.
Around CHF100,000 (e65,693/$87,904) is to be invested to bring Mystery Park up to standard, by adding more family friendly activities such as a children’s playground. The entrance price will also be lowered. Reports suggest the reopening will be for one season only.
