Last week in Murcia, Spain, a video presentation was given to government officials, investors and the press regarding a new Paramount resort and theme park due to open in 2015.
The theme park will include attractions based on Star Trek, Mission Impossible, Titanic, and Tomb Raider.
“Destined for a 158 hectare site on the Mazarron/Alhama de Murcia border some 15 minutes from the beach and marina resort of Puerto de Mazarron, the Theme Park will be zoned into different thematic areas inspired by the likes of Star Trek, Titanic and Mission Impossible plus a much larger ‘Lifestyle Centre’ with no less than two five-star hotels, three of four-star status and several more three-star resorts. Also announced were themed shopping malls, restaurants, bars and clubs, a conference centre with the largest meeting room capacity in Murcia – over 3,000 seats – and an open-air auditorium to host 15,000 people.”
The Plaza Future area of the park will “will immerse visitors in the world of science, action and adventure into outer space. The key attraction will be Star Trek. Total immersion combining motion simulation and highly advanced technology to give visitors an experience they will never forget. Among other attractions in Plaza future will be a 4D spectacular feature in which you will experience attacks against aliens when you join The War of the Worlds. If you like a little fear in your day you can enjoy the paranormal activity, gripped by 3D audio and sound effects where spooks will walk in the room and give visitors the feeling that spirits fly by them, quite literally.”
“It is indeed a huge privilege to be the recipient of a landmark Theme Park in the local area that will rival Disneyland Paris and attract millions of visitors each year,” said Chris Mercer, Director of Murcia-based Mercers headquartered in Mazarron.
Construction on the theme park is scheduled to begin later this year.
