The new management of Terra Mitica, who are the owners of Aqualandia, announced last week that they intend to spend 15 million euros over three years to reform the complex. They deny the report that they plan to lay off 300 workers.
According to Santamaria, the director of the project, the work will be carried out in three stages, the first one commencing on September 15th, when green areas will be created to provide areas of shade for enjoyment. Foliage will be planted, and water areas will be generated. The attractions will also be improved. This phase will last six months.
The park appears to be losing wáter, as the bill for the year is 800,000 euros, 600,000 euros more than Aqualandia spends on wáter. Someone has also been employed to look for wells of water in the park.
The second phase will start next year, and will be to open a separate area for private celebrations and activities.
The third phase will consist of a new entrance and other improvements, yet to be decided.
Santamaria believes the park should receive 800,000 visitors a year, and a million in 2012.
Although the work will start on September 15th the park won’t close on that date.
