EUROPE’S top theme park, according to TripAdvisor, receives more than two million annual visitors despite having no rides – and Spain is about to find out why.
The famous French theme park Puy Du Fou has opted to open a second site on the outskirts of Toledo.
Puy du Fou Espana is modeled on its French counterpart which is the second most popular theme park in France after Disneyland Paris.
The park attracts two million visitors a year through its gates with historical set piece reenactments featuring viking ship battles and warring kings – all set in the Middle Ages.
From 2021, visitors to Spain’s latest theme park will be able to enjoy the El Sueno de Toledo performance, which is based on 1,500 years of Spanish history.
Spread across 30 hectares, Puy du Fou Espana will put on four shows every day, within epic sets featuring castles and colosseums.
The new park, just an hour from Madrid, will also have a huge medieval village with shops and restaurants along with two further settlements to explore.
France’s Puy du Fou, which first opened in 1978, has received five stars on TripAdvisor from over 14,000 reviews.
The amusement park has also been voted the Best Theme Park in Europe as well as fifth Best Theme Park in the World.
The mark two park in Spain has now opened – although at present, guests can only visit on Fridays and Saturdays.
