Djurs Sommerland has announced its highest visitor number to date with 820,113 guests visiting the park this season. A staggering 103,629 visitors were recorded in just nine days as families flocked to the park for Magical Halloween during the autumn holidays.
CEO Henrik B. Nielsen said: “We are extremely proud and humbled that so many guests have visited Djurs Sommerland in 2021. With the prospect of continued corona restrictions and demands for corona passes, our hope up to the start of the season was that we could reach around 700,000 guests. That we then break the visitor record with 820,113 guests, it is a dream come true.”
Commenting on the 103,629 guests that came during the autumn holidays, Nielsen said: “That is more guests than in the biggest weeks of the high season.”
Roaring new land for 2022
There is a lot to look forward to when Djurs Sommerland opens for a new season on 30 April 2022. The park is investing over DKK 100 million in a new, large theme country, Dinosaurland with 25 full-size dinosaurs and three new rides.
Nielsen explained: “We have been working on this project for several years, and we are very much looking forward to our guests experiencing the new Dinosaurland in 2022. In addition to lifelike dinosaurs and a unique thematisation, there will also be some real good family rides – both a family slide, a jeep safari and a huge dinosaur playground. With the interest we are experiencing in the new Dinosaurland already now, it will be great to open the park to guests again. I am sure that we are facing a new exciting season. ”
Construction of the new Dinosaurland has been underway for more than a year, and work will continue until the season opens at the end of April 2022.
