Yerevan Park, which was first conceived in 2016, will be the biggest entertainment hub in the region, reports Zartonk Media.

Since 2016, developers of the theme park have worked alongside amusement industry experts, including Jeroen Nijpels from JNELC.

Yerevan Park will feature indoor and outdoor areas, with 25 rides and attractions. These were designed by various international manufacturers, including Zierer, Vekoma, and Zamperla.

The attraction will boast four roller coasters. Two of these coasters are family-friendly offerings, and the other two are thrill rides.
