With this new international expansion, Parques Reunidos is now involved with 61 parks in 14 countries attracting 20 million visitors per year.

Commenting on the announcement, Fernando Eiroa, CEO of Parques Reunidos, said, “This new opening represents a significant step in the expansion plan that the company has set for the coming years. The Asian market is a key region due to its strong growth potential in the leisure park industry. We believe this new park will prove a success in a strong tourist region such as Vietnam.”

Vietnam’s buoyant economy and rising middle class are fuelling a demand for world class attractions and have attracted the interest of other major players in the industry like Six Flags who see it as a land of opportunity.
