A HUGE ‘Jurassic’ theme park with zip wires and dinosaurs has been announced for the Costa del Sol.
The huge development, designed for families, features 19 lifesize dinos and a further 16 animatronic prehistoric beasts.
It will also have hiking trails, excavation zones, a children’s play area, a mini water park, restaurants and tapas kiosks.
Located in Rincon de la Victoria, the new site aims to be ‘the best known family park in the province of Malaga’.
On top of its many attractions, the theme park will also host seasonal events at Easter, Halloween, Christmas and in the school holidays.
“This theme park will be a tourist attraction with educational elements based on the world of dinosaurs, where both large and small can actively enjoy their time,” said the Mayor of Rinconero, Francisco Salado.
So far, €3,611,850 has been invested into the project by Paalwin Park SL, which is planned for land in the Parque Victoria urbanization, north of the A-7 motorway.
A 25-year deal for the plot, signed yesterday, gives developers four months to put forward their plans.
A first phase of the project is expected to be completed by 2021 and a second by 2024.
A total of 42 jobs are expected to be created from the park, which will decrease to 21 in the low season, under reduced operating hours.
The site of 68,397 square metres will also be complete with 183 parking spaces.
Tickets will start at €17.50, with 20% off for people with disabilities and school groups of over 20, while under-threes go free.
