Adventure World Warsaw theme park/ waterpark resort being developed for 2014 in Poland
Developers of Adventure World Warsaw say the theme park will offer "a standard comparable to Alton Towers, Efteling or Europa Park" -- The Adventure World Warsaw team includes such companies as AGS Architects, Jora Vision, Vekoma Rides Manufacturing, Hafema and International Destination Strategies.

Adventure World Warsaw will be opened in spring 2014 and is being developed on a 240-hectare site about 30 minutes from Warsaw, in Grodzisk Mazowiecki. The planned resort will consist of the theme park, two hotels, an aquapark and an entertainment zone with cinemas and restaurants.

The theme park itself will comprise five themed islands, with the following working names at the design stage: Adventure Harbour, Creature Lagoon, Castle Island, Land of Legends and “Polski” Plaza. The year-round, indoor section of the park will include indoor playgrounds for children, interactive shows and animations and an indoor aquapark.

The funding required to develop the Adventure World Warsaw will be provided by an international consortium of private and institutional investors having a registered seat in Luxembourg. Las Palm sp. z o.o. (an LLC) was established to coordinate the process of the Adventure World Warsaw theme park construction and management. The value of investments in the first phase of the project will amount to approximately EUR 400 mio.

The construction of the park will commence in spring 2012 according to Peter Jan Mulder, the President of the Board in Las Palm sp. z o.o."We expect approximately 2 million visitors annually in the first phase of the Adventure World Warsaw project," he says.

Developers forecast that Adventure World Warsaw will create approximately 1000 new jobs in the Grodzisk Mazowiecki area. The Park is the first stage of the planned investment. Among other things, the second phase will provide for the construction of another theme park, an extensive entertainment village, conference and business centre and a luxurious wellness centre.
