  1. "It looks quite small."

    Once built this site would be twice the size of the Olympic Park built in east London.
    So it's certainly not small.

    Dear members and non-members,

    themeparX is about concrete and verifiable theme park project and construction updates.

    Posts discussing the weather of the UK and Spain, or whether a Paramount Park in Murcia would be personally preferable over a Paramount Park in London, and vice versa, render these threads useless for those looking for project status updates.

    Please understand that we will delete such posts in the future.

    Thank you,
    themeparX admin

  4. It is pointless talking (or more accurately arguing) about Murcia. The project has been planned for Kent. End of story.

  5. The tourist figures for Murcia are not misleading, they're correct. You guys are just clutching at straws. No private investors in over four years. One thing Spain isn't short of is land. It would make much more sense to build it close to a major city or tourist region, not in a poor, rural area.

  6. The point missed here is that the site is only 15km from the Valencia region southern boundary including Alicante and Benidorm -- Alicante is only 1 hour away, Benidorm 1:30. So the percentage numbers for Murcia only are very misleading.

  7. The figure for Murcia tourists was a little low.

    There were 60 million visitors to Spain in 2013, so 1.24% of that figure is 744,000.
    Still a tiny, tiny number.

  8. At the moment, the only argument for Murcia is that it's sunny.

    Let's look at some figures.
    Population of Murcia - 1.47 million
    Tourist visitors to Murcia - 650,000
    Murcia currently attracts 1.24% of visitors to Spain.

    Population of London - 8.3 million
    Visitors to London - 16.8 million
    Plus another approximately 12 million people living within an hour of London.

    Looking at the number of potential customers, why would anyone give a second thought to Murcia?
    The figures don't lie. No wonder the chap trying to build it hasn't raised any money from private investors.
    He can't even pay the Spanish government the €12 million his football club owes in tax!

    By the way, Malaga is not close to Murcia. It's 400km away.

  9. We'll with that level of income you can afford the flights and spend you money helping the poor Spaniards. Don't forget you won't need your rain coat as we have 300+ days of sunshine and had a frost once in five years. Any investor will pick Murcia close to Alicante and Malaga. With flights all over Europe and more visitors than London.
